Wireless Sensor Networking Training


Wireless Sensor Networking Training Course Description

This 4-day Wireless Sensor Networking Training is designed for remote sensing engineers, process control architects, security system engineers, instrumentation designers, ISR developers, and program managers who wish to enhance their understand¬ing of ad hoc wireless sensor networks (WSN) and how to design, develop, and implement these netted sensors to solve a myriad of applications including: smart building installation, process control, asset tracking, military operations and C4I applications, as well as energy monitoring. The concept of low-cost sensors, structured into a large network to provide extreme fidelity with an extensive capability over a large-scale system is described in detail using technologies derived from robust radio-stacked microcontrollers, cellular logic, SOA-based systems, and adroit insertion of adaptive, and changeable, middleware.

Duration:4 days

Skills Gained:

What can robust, ad hoc wireless sensing provide beyond that of conventional sensor systems?
How can low-cost sensors perform on par with expensive sensors?
What is required to achieve comprehensive monitoring?
Why is multi-hopping “crucial” to permit effective systems?
What ‘s required from the power management systems?
What are WSN characteristics?
What do effective WSN systems cost?

Customize It:

With onsite Training, courses can be scheduled on a date that is convenient for you, and because they can be scheduled at your location, you don’t incur travel costs and students won’t be away from home. Onsite classes can also be tailored to meet your needs. You might shorten a 5-day class into a 3-day class, or combine portions of several related courses into a single course, or have the instructor vary the emphasis of topics depending on your staff’s and site’s requirements.
