Objectives Students will gain technical knowledge and hands-on experience needed to create mobile apps using state-of-the-art mobile technologies, mobile platforms, operating systems, and application frameworks. Furthermore, background knowledge on wireless networks, location awareness, and mobile sensor systems will be obtained.
Subject The lecture consists of two parts. In the first part, an overview of wireless technologies (such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, LTE, and GPS) and different types of mobile applications and development platforms, OSs, and application frameworks are given. In addition, the design of mobile apps is discussed with the aim to give the students a solid background in how to develop compelling sensor-enriched mobile applications. In particular for Android programming, a detailed introduction is provided. The second part of the lecture is a practical part where students apply the techniques and principles to develop a mobile app.
Criteria for evaluation The course is a project-based course. The project can be done in a group of 1-3 students. Grading is based on the active participation in the theory part, handing in reports and giving presentations, and the final delivery of the project work.
Methods The course combines a lecture part where interactive participation is ensured by discussions, small exercises, and reports that need to be handed in, and a practical, project-oriented part where students develop a mobile application and present their results.
