Welcome to EEL 6788 - Advanced topics in wireless networks This class is a vehicle for students to immerse themselves into current research topics in wireless networks. To clarify a misunderstanding caused by the EEL prefix: this is not an electrical engineering class. Our perspective is computer science computer engineering: software, networking protocols, some hardware. We are not interested in antennas, signal processing etc. I EE majors are, of course welcome to the class. Every year, we choose a different topic. Previously we had: I Ad hoc networks I Sensor networks I Sensor networks from an agent perspective Damla Turgut (Dept. of EECS) Introduction Jan 10, 2011 2 / 16

This year’s topic: urban sensing How to use the ubiquitous personal devices I best example being smartphones I ... but also cameras, watches, personal health monitors etc. to sense our environment collect , validate , integrate and secure the data and deliver it to interested customers, either centralized or distributed. Also known as participatory sensing , urban computing etc. Damla Turgut (Dept. of EECS) Introduction Jan 10, 2011 3 / 16

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
