Softwareprojekt Mobilkommunikation

The module Telematik-Projekt (Telematics-Project) introduces selected, relevant topics from the domain of computer networks. The module is a lab-course with focus on software development in small teams. As a central aspect, telecommunication systems have to be specified, communication protocols developed, and networks analyzed. Each team of students has to solve a particular assignment, which includes project management and presentation of the current and final state. Problems, ideas, and further steps shall be discussed in Plenum-style events.

The available topics change from term to term and include wired and wireless network technologies. Depending on the available infrastructure and hardware, either wireless sensor networks, wireless mesh networks, or Ethernet-based local area networks are used.

Attendance in the first two events is mandatory; additionally, the general 85% attendance rule applies. Students forfeit their course registration when missing the first two events and their positions will be reassigned.

  • Lectures TI3 and Telematics or Mobile Communications
  • Basics of operating systems
  • Basic knowledge of the programming languages C and Python
  • Basic software management skills
  • Basic LaTeX skills
  • Basic Subversion skills
  • English, as most documentation is only available in english
The lectures TI3 and Telematics or Mobile Communications are required for everybody! You definitely need some understanding of layered network architectures. You should have some programming experience with C and Python. This lab course is no programming course so you should be able to learn the required skills yourself!
