Section Description

This course explores the principles and practice of smart physical places and things (Smart*). New devices have been added to cities, homes, factories, cars, and even to humans (inside and out), hoping that this influx of technology will help us solve pressing societal issues in all facets of life such as energy, personal health, environment, or safety. The challenges, however, remain in designing and scaling the hardware platforms, networking protocols, and machine perception algorithms to enable this new class of computing. This course will cover state-of-the-art research papers that address various visions of the future platforms supporting smart*. It will also stress the cyber physical aspects of these systems, providing safe, secure, and efficient interaction with the physical world. This course will offer significant hands-on experience through a semester-long project, paper critiques, and overview of the commercial landscapes for the topics covered in class.
