About the course

In this course, you will learn about the future evolution of communication networks towards so-called machine-type applications, also referred to as cyber-physical systems. You will be equipped with the basics to design, implement and dimension such networks according to application needs. Most of this knowledge represents the underlying principles driving the most current evolution of information networking. This evolution necessitates the reconsideration and redesign of major parts of communication networks to make them suitable for modern applications like robot and drone coordination, control of automation machinery or also augmented reality applications.

The course provides an overview of the underlying principles of this future evolution towards cyber-physical networks, while also discussing open research problems and societal implications of such networks.
