This course will example efficient strategies to design and implement applications and services for mobile and wireless systems with a focus on mobile phone platforms. The course will start with an overview various mobile platforms that are broadly available today (iPhone, Windows Mobile, and Android). It will be followed by a broad array of topics in developing such applications and services, that include wireless communication issues, location-based services, cloud-based design, energy consumption and efficiency issues, human-computer interaction for small form factor devices, and system integration.
The main focus of the course will be a semester-long programming project that will be done in groups of 3. Students will be required to quickly come up to speed with their programming platform, define a specific project objectives in detail, and showcase a full application by the end of the semester.
