Internet of Things (IoT) is spawning the use of sensors that are both pervasive and ubiquitous in every aspect of our lives. Sensor technology is a key part of IoT, which is experiencing a rapid growth and is believed to be a multi-billion dollar industry. Wireless sensor networks are distributed systems, in which autonomous devices, sometimes called Motes, collect environmental data (such as location, speed, temperature, humidity and sound level) or, more recently, medical data (such as heart rate, blood oxygen level and pulse rate). This data is collected across a network, aggregated and fed into business applications. Sensor networks are an enabler for a broad range of applications in different sectors such as agriculture, healthcare, manufacturing, mining, smart cities, etc. In this subject, students will learn WSN theory and technology such as routing and security as well as hands-on skills and practical knowledge in WSN.
