Mobile and Wearable Computing
This course provides both in-depth knowledge and a critical understanding of mobile and wearable computing systems. After attending the course, students should be able to design and prototype services and applications for mobile and wearable devices.
The widespread use of mobile and wearable devices such as mobile phones and smart watches enables the implementation of novel services in applications areas like mobile health, smart working, and more. This course presents the building blocks of such services and discusses the challenges that arise on the path towards their realization. Specific topics covered include: hardware platforms; programming environments and tools; the collection and processing of sensor data; the design of mobile user interfaces; local and remote data storage; privacy and security issues.
The course includes instructor-led lectures, interactive discussion sessions and tutorial sessions during which students will learn how to design and implement Android applications.
The final grade will result from a combination of the grade obtained through the final exam and the grades of the assignments and the programming project carried out during the semester.
References will be provided during the semester, along with lecture slides and other reading materials.
