A pervasive system is the growing trend of everyday objects to make them smart, constantly available, effectively communicate and perform useful tasks. In particular, a pervasive system reduces the user's need to interact with computers, increases the human experience in interacting with objects and with the environment, supports the user in managing daily-life objects, transforming the quality of life of the user. In other words, pervasive systems make the environment “a small world where different kinds of smart devices are continuously working to make inhabitants' lives more comfortable” (Cook, Diane; Das, Sajal (2004). Smart Environments: Technology, Protocols and Applications).
A pervasive system generally involves a wide set of technologies like wireless communication and networking technologies, mobile devices, embedded systems, wearable computers, RFID tags, beacon technology, Internet capabilities, voice recognition, artificial intelligence etc.
Pervasive system applications can cover resources (energy, water,…), military, safety, consumer, healthcare, production, logistics, industries, environment, etc.
The course aims at introducing, from different areas of interest, design techniques and some criteria for the development of a pervasive system.
Risultati di apprendimento attesi
The class is composed of lessons and seminars, practical exercises and a project.
Lessons and practical lessons topics
Introduction to pervasive systems (taxonomy, requirements and directives, examples)
Designing pervasive devices: from specifications to PCB
LAB: Eagle tool, LTSpice
Hardware Architecture: Microcontroller and processor for application specific applications, Special purpose hardware devices
LAB: STM32 - NUCLEO Board- (architecture and examples) and Raspberry PI
Introduction to sensors and signal conditioning
wireless communication, Beacon Techonology, RFID
Dependability and fault detection: problems and methods
Industrial/research project activity: from specifications to prototipe
Modalità di valutazione
The exam consists in a project discussion (mainly base on microcontrollers) and in an oral test.
The first oral test is at the end of the semester. Other tests can be taken in subsequent sessions. The project has to be discussed in the same session of the oral test.
