The course will meet each weekday for 2.5 hours. The exact time is yet to be determined.
Course Description: In this course, students will learn the fundamentals of experimentation research for the purposes of designing novel measurement studies for drone communications. Students will also learn about the unique problems that are facing wireless communications when designed for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), which has the challenges of Doppler effects induced by high levels of mobility, limited power consumption, and highly-restrictive load capabilities.
Background: Students must be proficient in computer programming and have taken a course in differential equations.
You may discuss lab assignments with classmates but all solutions must be original and individually prepared. Late lab work will be penalized at 15% of its full credit per day up to a maximum of 4 days, after which no late work will be accepted.
The SMU Honor Code will be strictly enforced.
Religiously observant students wishing to be absent on holidays that require missing class should notify their professors in writing at the beginning of the semester, and should discuss with them, in advance, acceptable ways of making up any work missed because of the absence. (See University Policy No. 1.9.)
Excused Absences for University Extracurricular Activities:
Students participating in an officially sanctioned, scheduled University extracurricular activity should be given the opportunity to make up class assignments or other graded assignments missed as a result of their participation. It is the responsibility of the student to make arrangements with the instructor prior to any missed scheduled examination or other missed assignment for making up the work.
