    The goal The students will be introduced to the current technologies, as well as to the state of the art research of intelligent objects. The students will be introduced with platforms for dynamic integration and management of intelligent objects.. Principles of networking and integration of intelligent objects with communications networks will be studied in details.
    The outcome After completion of the course the students will be able to: - participate in design of intelligent objects and applications - participate in the integration of M2M intelligent objects with mobile communications systems - use existing platforms for conducting of experiments
