Annotation The aims of studio subject gives understanding about sensor network ( mobile, ambient, cognitive networking) access for many kinds of controlled process. Many kinds technologies and implementations of sensor networks are observed. Special attention was attracted for advanced innovative technologies and implementations (as autonomous control, cognitive platforms, heterogeneous and cluster multilevel sensor networks), research and modeling techniques for architectural and infrastructure development. In subject content are included sensor network design methods and service oriented architecture realization base topics. There are possibilities for student experimental and technological practice works. It is proposed sensor network control and management techniques which consisted with most popular methods and standards. The students are introduced with wireless sensor network diversity and self organization..
Goals and objectives
of the course in terms
of competences and skills
To train specialists, which can implement, design, analyze sensor network technologies for real control processes of the base industry and society progress directions
Learning outcomes
and assessment
Possibility to take in the base principles of the sensor networks, main advantage and limitations, the knowledge of infrastructure elements and technology life cycles. - Successfully pass exam, which contents as theoretical as situation analyze with tasks to improve controlled processes by means of sensor network technology implementation.
Possibility argue sensor network utilization (non utilization) necessity consisted with industry (business) process kind. - During situation analyze developed decision for process improving, by means of sensor networks technology components.
By implementing corresponding sensor networks techniques possibility by yourself to use known methods and models let’s integer industry (business) processes. Possibility to choose between appropriated - By yourself perform course work.
Possibility to monitor sensor network technology limitations for controlled industry processes. - By yourself perform laboratory works.
Course prerequisites Academic (professional) bachelor degree of engineer science, native science or economic science
