Group projects are a significant component of this course. General
guidelines are as follows:
Groups are to be established early in the semester and
maintained throughout the course.
- All group members must make significant and roughly
equal project contributions, as determined by the group.
- Each group is responsible for two projects during the semester:
- A WSN research project proposal on a topic of general interest,
with some background on the latter.
- A WSN application or technological improvement that
demonstrably runs on the UVM CS/EE Tmote Sky architecture.
- Groups will be responsible for project proposals, project
execution, and in-class project presentations.
Project grades will be based on propopals, execution, and presentation.
All group members will be assigned the same grade for their
- Class Participation: 10%
- First Project: 30%
- Second Project: 60%
- We rigorously enforce the University's policy and procedures on Code of Academic Integrity. At the first suspicion of violation of this code, the case will be immediately forwarded to the University Coordinator of Academic Integrity.
- ALL work is to be an individual effort,
UNLESS group work is explicitly allowed by the instructor.
- The instructor is available for outside help, during office hours,
by email, and by appointment.
- It is your responsibility to protect your own work.
- All work that is suspected to violate the Code of Academic Integrity will be referred directly to the Coordinator of Academic Integrity
in the Provost's Office.
- I recommend that you read UVM’s Code of Academic Integrity.
