Information

Aims, contents and method of the course


The lecture will be given in German (slides in English) but can be switched to English on demand (e.g., if English and non-German speaking students attend the lecture).

We will discuss the following mobile computing topics and integrate them into laboratory experiments and implementations according to the progress of the lecture:

- Mobility Modeling
- Wireless Computing (WLAN IEEE 802.11a/b/g, Bluetooth, ZigBee, WiMAX etc.)
- Mobile Communication Networks (GSM/GPRS, UMTS)
- Network Protocols in Mobile Computing (m-IP, routing in mobile ad-hoc networks and wireless mesh networks)
- Selected Wireless Networks (e.g., Wireless Mesh Networks, Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks (car2car))
- Mobile Devices (mobile human computer interaction, multimodale interaction)
- Software Architectures for Mobile Computing (J2ME, .NET; Symbian OS, Tiny OS)
- Mobile Distributed Computing (Jini, UPnP, Peer-to-Peer computing)
- Ubiquitous Computing (context-awareness - in particular location-awareness, GPS, sensors/aktuators, "Smart Systems")
- Security and Privacy

Assessment and permitted materials


The examination of the lecture consists of:

- Seminal presentation of a selected mobile computing topic
- Examination (understanding the theory)

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria


The aims of this lecture are to introduce the main issues, technologies, and algorithms for all networking layers in mobile computing systems. Besides the oral presentation part, the students will get experiences in programming state of the art mobile devices and communicating over common wireless networks (like WLAN or Bluetooth).

Examination topics

To achieve the aims the lecture relies on:

- Theory parts presented by the lecturer dedicated to learning the basic methods and technologies used in mobile computing
- Prototype implementation of a specific problem in mobile computing (group project work)

Reading list


Selected chapters (main literature):

- Jörg Roth. Mobile Computing, 2005 (2. Auflage)
- Andrew S. Tanenbaum. Computer Networks, 2003 (4th Edition)
