CS 4750 - Secure Wireless Ad Hoc Robots on Mission (SWARM) 1
Introduces the concepts underlying the design of robust and secure heterogeneous wireless networking of mobile robots: Internetworking, security, wireless communication, embedded development, and mobile phone platforms. Students form mixed teams with the goal of designing and building rescue-mission-oriented heterogeneous wireless systems operating in adversarial environments. These systems consist of off-the-shelf robots enhanced by the students with a low-power control and sensing embedded system; a low-power digital radio frequency communication network; a coordination unit connected to the Internet; and a messaging and command system based on cell phones. The course culminates in a competition between teams. Students are graded based on their designs, presentations, innovation, robustness, and competition performance. Graduate students are expected to make a research contribution. Prereq. (a) CS 3600 or CS 5600 and (b) permission of instructor.
