This course introduces students to state-of-the-art research on Internet of Things (IoT), with a focus on mobile sensing. Topics of discussion include RFID, sensor, localization, personal sensing (activity, gesture, health related sensing), efficient wireless networking, battery free device communication, and security/privacy. Overall, the course would help students develop skills to create novel applications from wireless and mobile sensor data, and apply mathematical concepts to real world problems through a course project.
