The telematics project introduces the students to the topic of wireless embedded systems. Depending on the term's current focus Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) and/or Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) resp. their hardware are to be programmed and used.
Wireless networks face more problems than their wired counterparts due the properties of theshared medium, mobility of network nodes, and new application scenarios. Novel approaches are needed to handle these challenges.
Topics and tasks will be introduced, explained, and assigned in the fist session.
