Registration for exam:Directly with the lecturer
continual assessment


The students will learn how to deal with technical and scientific literature and the presentation of scientific results.


The development of sensors in small devices with powerful processors such as smart phones, iWatch or smart bands enables a precise tracking of the environment and subsequently offering an appropriate service. This requires a combination of signal processing at sensors, machine learning, and communications which will be studied in this course. The discussed topics address the applications such as localization, navigation, and activity recognition with distributed sensors. To solve these application problems, the methods of sensor signal processing, sensor nets, data fusion, machine learning, and data mining are considered. The topics will be assigned in a preliminary appointment to participants.

Every student should give a presentation about the chosen topic in English and submit a report of 20 pages (in English or German). Each presentation is followed by a discussion.
