Overview

Mobile and ubiquitous computing are often referred to as the third generation of computing where humans continuously interact not with just one but many computing devices. The latter are thereby embedded into the everyday environment of their users in such a way that users may not even be aware of their interaction with computers. In this class, students will explore this third generation of computing that enables such ubiquitous computing. Students will learn about the technical foundations of sensing, computing, and communication that are the prerequisite for smooth and seamless interactions in a continuous manner. Based on these foundations, students will work on practical projects that address cutting edge real-world problems and will develop innovative solutions to them through means of mobile and ubiquitous computing. Beyond providing a solid technical foundation for mobile and ubiquitous computing, the course will focus on aspects of how to actually build and deploy mobile and ubiquitous computing systems.

This course is not foundational and does not count toward any specializations at present, but it can be counted as a free elective.
