Mittwoch, 8:15-9:00 (IZ Room 105) Preliminary

Certificates Submition of report and successful presentation. The grade is determined by the active participation in the seminar as well as the quality of report and presentation.


Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) provide us various services and applications in our daily lives. A novel wildlife monitoring application — the BATs project — will be studied in this seminar. It povides new methodologies for efficient monitoring of bats' natual habitat.

Simulation Tools


In this semester, there will be a peer review of reports by the participants of the seminar. This means that participants will gather in groups of 2-3 students and help each other with presentation and report after the release of the final version of supervisor's opinion (review). This review includes both positive and negative criticism, and the contributions to the report will be further improved. There will be a corresponding template for creating the review.


Please finish the elaboration in English and submit as a PDF file. The extent of elaboration should include 6-10 pages. The presentation takes about 25 minutes. Each participant of the semenar will receive the literature according to the topic respectively. Furthermore, each participant should additionally do an independent research. The supervisor is always glad to help in this case.

(The strength of the university depends on academic and personal integrity. In this seminar, reports must be done in your own words. Plagiarism is an offense against the examination regulations.)

The LaTeX template for seminar report can be found here, you can also have a look at the PDF-Format.

Additional considerations for the design of the report can be found on the website of IBR.

As a presentation template, this PowerPoint-Template (PPT) or PowerPoint-Template (PPTX) or OpenOffice-Template will be used.

Each seminar participant will receive an account for the access to the computer of the institute.


The material is only available to registered attendees. In order to register, you need either an IBR account or a self-activated IBR-y-account. Afterwards you can login to this site (with the function at the top of this page).
