Lab Course Wireless Sensor Networks (Winter 2017)

Lab Course Wireless Sensor Networks -- Prof. Reindl and Prof. Schindelhauer

In this lab course (Praktikum), you will be introduced to hard- and software layers of wireless sensor networks. The participants will develop their own wireless sensor network as part of this course. It is advised, that you brush up your knowledge of C and C++.

The hardware platform for development will be a Raspberry 2 running Arch Linux with an IMU (MPU 9250), Environmental Sensor (BME 280), and an Ultrasonic Sensor (HC-SR04).

Participants will work in groups of 3 ot 4 students.

The lab course will be conducted by 

  • Dr. Sven Köhler (CoNe)
  • Joan Bordoy (CoNe)
  • Dominik Schott (IMTEK)



  • 13.10.2017: Webseite is online


  • Fridays (starting 20.10.2017), 14:15-18:00, in 106-01-007



The Raspberry Pi is available from the library at the Faculty of Engineering.

Bringing you own laptop is strongly encouraged!
