Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are wireless networks composed of self-organized tiny devices characterized by limited energy supply, low-cost embedded processors and low-power radios. The nodes cooperatively monitor physical or environmental conditions, such as temperature, sound, vibration, motion and so on.

WSNs have received tremendous attention over the past few years. These networks seek to extend the long-arm of the Internet by connecting it to the physical world using sensors.

WSNs provide a basis for a new computing paradigm that challenges many classical approaches to distributed computing and networking.

This course will study cutting-edge research papers that deal with various aspects of WSNs. Topics include wireless network hardware and software, WSN MAC and routing protocols. Other important topics, such as time synchronization, localization, data processing and aggregation will be covered. Newer topics such as body sensor networks, will be discussed if time allows.

The course will involve class presentation and participation and a project in WSN programming environment.
