Attendance at the first lab session (15.04.09, 14:00-18:00) is mandatory! Your registration is void if you miss this event. If you could not register for this course, attend the meeting nevertheless. We might still have vacancy.
Please note, that there will be no meeting on the 08.04.09 as stated in the KVV!
Topics and tasks will be introduced, explained, and assigned in the first session.
A total work time of 150h as well as active participation and teamwork are required to pass the course. Besides the lab hours you therefore have to do part of your work at home or in the PC pools. To solve the tasks using your own hardware you should have a PC or laptop with Windows or Linux (preferred) installed. You are also expected to be prepared for the lab hoursand have read all documentation.
The course is a so called project seminar. You can get a a seminar or a lab course "Schein".
Additional appointments will be announced on demand!
No exam, but you have to attend the course on all Wednesdays and present your work at the end of the semester (using the official presentation template). Your reports must be handed in on time and fulfill the general requirements.
A minimum of 150 work hours per person is required. This means additional work has to be done besides the lab hours.
There are no typical weekly assignments as every team has to work to solve several task over the whole semester.
At the 15th of April we will do some first steps together in class. This should give you an introduction to the ScatterWeb² firmware and what feature are available. If this term's focus is on WMNs there will be an introduction to our DES-Mesh testbed.
Linux users should refer to this guide to compile the binaries on their own. (It worked for me)
Debian packages are available here.
Windows users should note that Cygwin might be needed. Usual problems reside in multiple incompatible cygwin1.dll files and usage of make of a version lower than 3.81.
