CS4533 Wireless Mobile Computing

This course will focus on a new paradigm in computing: wireless mobile computing. Portable, handheld, computing devices are now being used for many applications previously accomplished by larger desktop computers or dedicated small devices. Some of these devices contain powerful RISC CPUs, user-accessible flash RAM storage, networking and peripheral connectivity, handwriting recognition, and built-in infrared networking capabilities. The goal of this course is to provide a fundamental understanding of the devices, communications, and design and implementation issues in building such mobile networked applications. Students will be required to research, design, and/or implement a project that integrates multiple technologies to solve a real-world problem requiring mobile computing.
