IT434 - Introduction to Sensor Networks

Sensor networks are a network of nodes which have sensing, computing and communicating infrastructure along with a power source. This allows us to instrument, observe, and respond to phenomena in the natural environment, and in our physical and cyber infrastructure. The sensors themselves can range from small passive microsensors to larger scale, controllable weather-sensing platforms. Their computation and communication infrastructure will be radically different from that found in today's Internet-based systems, reflecting the device- and application-driven nature of these systems.
The course will cover all aspects of Sensor Network with a student participatory approach. Focus would be on design of sensor network nodes.
