Wireless Networks


Wireless communication systems are the key enabling technology of the mobile phones revolutions. This course covers both the fundamentals of wireless networking and the practical aspects of wireless systems such as current standards. The course has a strong practical component, the students will work in teams on several small projects (e.g., mobile phone application, wireless sensor networks, wireless WiFi router), and a major final project integrating several wireless communication technologies and mechanisms (e.g., mobile app controlled smart home systems, brain control of flying robots).
