Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to...

๏ understand the concepts of Ubiquitous Computing describing the deployment and integration of computing technology into everyday objects and environments.

๏ understand and apply the relevant concepts and fundamental technologies (e.g. context-awareness, localization and sensing technologies, machine learning on the edge, microprocessor programming, design of ubicomp applications)  

๏ to understand the specific topics of activity recognition, privacy concerns and preserving approaches, business applications, and related business models. ๏ apply your theoretical knowledge from the class to develop a specific ubicomp project.

Subject of course

 * Introduction to Ubiquitous Computing, the vision of computing disappearing into the background and serving the user's needs proactively; this class will critically review this historic vision and put it into the context of today's developments.

* Notion of context-aware computing, the principle of integrating implicit input from user and environment for providing more meaningful services to the user

* Investigation of working principles of sensors and their application for context detection

* Review of location technologies, discussion of privacy-preserving approaches

* Relevant data models and standards for resource-constrained devices

* Review of systems & infrastructure

* Discussion of data analysis & activity recognition

* Overview of digital twin applications in industry

* Revisiting Design, Prototyping & Evaluation Methods

* Review of IoT business models

 * Discussion of privacy-related implications

* State of the art of (physical) Fabrication technologies

* Outlook on emerging technologies
