Teaching Offer at Chair Computer Networks

Application Development for Mobile and Ubiquitous Computing (English)


    Offer of course in winter semester.
    The final presentation is due on Friday, January 31, 2020.
    The presentation should be structured as a pitch of 5 minutes. Please follow the hints in the „HowTo Pitch“ slide deck. Slide submission is due on Thursday, January 30, 2019.

    To successfully complete your seminar a colloquium will be held based on individual appointments on Thursday, January 30th or Tuesday, February 4.

    Prepare the following for the colloquium:

    - present the running application
    - explain the project structure and code
    - discuss adaptation concept (mechanisms and context)
    - it is not necessary to submit the project

    Please refer to the document below (Colloquium dates) to check available time slots for the colloquium. Please note that the successful completion of the seminar is a necessary prerequisite to take the exam.

    All exams are oral. To take the exam in Application Development there are two cases: either you need a single exam (only Application Development) or a module exam (Application Development in combination with other lectures).

    Registration for oral exams is possible at Ms Jarschel’s office (APB 3110). Exam documents are required for the registration. You can check the available time slots at our web page (https://tu-dresden.de/ing/informatik/sya/professur-fuer-rechnernetze/studium/pruefungen-und-abschlussarbeiten/pruefungen - needs to be accessed from within the campus network).

    To register for a single exam, the following dates are eligible: February 11, February 24, March 3.

    For module exams any exam data is eligible where Application Development AND additional lectures are available for exams.

    Please note that for any type of exam the official regulations for registration and withdrawal apply!

    Common Information:

    The course is especially for students which are interested in mobile computing applications and their implementation. The course starts with an introduction also to new areas like Ambient Intelligence and Ubiqitous Computing, describes applications and gives an overview about the domain. After that, the next courses consider different functionalities such as networking aspects (different short and long range communication capabilities), and special mobile computing concepts such as disconnected and autonomous operation, mobile agents and context based adaptation. After that, different architectures for mobile distributed systems are discussed. Different options for implementing mobile systems, starting from communication, over local and distributed platforms (e.g. WAP, OSGi, J2ME, J2EE) until the implementation of graphical user interfaces are given in the implementation section of the course. Additional concepts such as mobile security, data synchronization, downsizing of applications to mobile devices, data synchronization methods, databases for mobile devices, location based services, Semantic Web and autonomous behaviour will be partly discussed in a separate section. Tools, environments, platforms and emulators are considered near the end of the course, as well as current international research and industrial projects will be presented.
