Projects involves programming, instrumentation and measurements on wireless and mobile devices. You develop a prototype application, evaluate some protocol etc. They can be complemented with a more theoretical part, which means that some team members in the project group write a report (i.e. term paper) on the project topic by reviewing the existing literature. It could be a good idea to divide the project team members over the practical and theoretical study/analysis parts. All members collaborate to solve the overall task.
Projects are carried out in groups of 3-5 students. Groups that combine the project with a theoretical study are carried out in groups of 4-7 students.
Team up with your fellow students and propose a project. Projects should normally be limited to one of the following areas:
- Environmental monitoring
- E-health and body-area networks
- Participatory sensing
- Network measurements and analysis
Project proposal submission
The process of choosing and distributing projects begin in early March, even if the actual project work does not begin until end of March. Teams can be formed before or at the projects introduction lecture. The time-line is as follows:
- March 3:rd - Projects introduction lecture
- March 8:th at 08:00 - Deadline for project proposals
- March 11:th - Feedback on project proposals from supervisor team
- March 15:th at 08:00 - Deadline for revised project proposal
- March 28:th - Project starts
Each project proposal should include:
- Brief description of what the project is about (possibly including the subject of the theoretical study)
- Brief description of the approach
- How the different subtasks will be divided among team members
- How the project will be presented at the end of the course (e.g. demo)
- Hardware and software requirements
If you propose alternative projects, please rank them according to your priority.
Proposals are submitted as an email to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 08:00 on March 9:th. A team of supervisors will review your proposals and give you feedback on these no later than March 11:th. You must then revise the proposals according to the feedback and resubmit them you your proposal reviewer no later than 08:00 on March 15:th. On March 28:th, the projects officially begin.
Due to limited resources in terms of lab space, hardware and supervisors, we cannot guarantee that everyone will be able to do the project they have ranked highest. We will, however, do our best to meet everyone's preferences.
