CSE 591: Wireless Sensor Networks

Course Description

This course will cover leading edge topics in Wireless Sensor Networks. The goal of this course in to give an overview of fundamental problems in the area of Wireless Sensor Networks and study the existing solutions for some of these problems. Data aggregation, information dissemination, security issues, power management, localization are some of the topics that will be covered in this course. The course will also involve homeworks, exams and a term project. The term project will involve implementition of a novel research idea or existing solutions for a problem on sensors (Motes).
