Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have the potential of dwarfing the revolution that the Internet has brought to the world of computing, entertainment, work, and human interaction by the creation of the Internet of Things. WSNs are networks of tiny, autonomous nodes equipped with wireless transmission and sensing capabilities for a huge variety of applications, such as healthcare, transportation systems, industrial manufacturing automation, and smart grids. The focus of the course is on distributed algorithms and protocols for WSNs. The course starts with an introduction on applications, hardware, and network architecture. Then the course presents iterative methods for distributed computation, and shows how these methods can be applied to the design of key aspects of the communication protocol stack and applications. The course also includes a lecture for programming sensor.
