Sensors have become a part of many mobile platforms such as cell phones, laptops or wearable computers. In this seminar we will explore the emerging field of mobile sensors. We will get to know different types of sensors, algorithms and models used for processing their signals. We will also have topics covering some concrete applications.

For students seeking hands-on experience, we can provide access to several mobile sensors.
