AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The Internet society is based on technological solution for continuative and pervasive connection of persons and objects (IoT). In the course, different radio technologies are investigated and compared able to guarantee such global connection, including terrestrial and satellite solutions. Radio coverage strategies will be examined by comparing different cell planning methodologies. Terrestrial mobile telephone standards like GSM/GPRS, WCDMA and LTE will be examined and compared with satellite technologies like Globalstar and Iridium. The smartphone platform will be considered as a multi-standard platform able to connect persons and things beyond the telephone network, including Wifi, Bluetooth, RFID, BLE, NFC. The added value represented by position estimation of terminal, persons and things will be considered with reference to applications for logistics, transportation and health. In such view, methodologies based on terrestrial radio fingerprinting and satellite-based global systems (GPS/Galileo/Egnos) will be introduced.
