1.S992 : Sensor Network Design (U)

Fall 2013; co-taught with Colette Heald and Eben Cross

This class aims to foster solution‐oriented design to address real‐world problems, meeting a set of realistic constraints. Specifically, students in the class will explore a concrete example of the “smart city” concept. This will be achieved via a hands‐on design experience including research, design, prototyping and testing of a sensor network for the MIT campus. Lectures will introduce students to relevant concepts throughout the semester. In addition, the class will emphasize the development of practical communication skills associated with team projects.
