Lab Time and Location:
Wednesday and Friday from 1:10 PM to 3:00 PM in Packard Lab 112.
Lab Objective:
Interested in studying Wii-game like systems for environment protection, healthcare, public safety, energy conservation, and social computing applications? This Engr5 lab will provide such opportunities via an intensive small-team computer science and engineering project experience. In five weeks, multi-person teams study how to use the Imote2.Builder kit, then design and implement applications using the Imote2 wireless sensing platform, and summarize the group projects in written reports and public oral presentations. The Imote2.Builder kit includes Crossbow Imote2 hardware modules with embedded computing and wireless communication capabilities, an ITS400 sensor board with a 3D accelerometer, temp/humidity sensor, and light sensor, and the Microsoft .NET Micro Framework software that programs the hardware platform.
Lab Prerequisites:
None. No prior computer or programming experience is required.
Lab Schedules:
Wednesday and Friday from 1:10 PM to 3:00 PM in Packard Lab 112.

Lab Grading (proviosnal):
Your lab grade will be reported to Prof. Gardiner as a part of your final grade in Engr5
Team Project:30%
Individual Homework:20%

Your absence may affect your final grade. If you know that you may be absent from classes, please report this beforehand. Email me as soon as you know that you are ill and will need to miss one or more class meetings.

Submitting Lab Work:
You should submit your work before its deadline to the CourseSite. No late submission will be accepted. If you encounter any problem in submitting your work via the CourseSite, you should submit your work via emails to me and our TA before the deadline to avoid the late submission penalty. Exceptions will only be granted if an extenuating circumstance can be proven to the instructor's satisfaction.
Collaboration / Academic Honesty:
All individual homework is expected to be your own. In particular, you are not allowed to ask anyone but the instructor and the TA for help with your individual homework assignments, unless the instructor has authorized collaboration in writing. However, you are free to discuss the topics and concepts of the course with your classmates, as long as you do not discuss the specifics of any individual homework assignment. Any violation of this policy could result in failure of the course.

Please visit the following two websites and read all details of the academic integrity policy: Academic Integrity at Lehigh University: http://www.lehigh.edu/~indost/conduct/aiforstudents.shtml and Improper Collaboration Policy: http://www.lehigh.edu/~ejk0/cheating.html.

Academic Accommodations:
Accommodations for Students with Disabilities: If you have a disability for which you are or may be requesting accommodations, please contact both your instructor and the Office of Academic Support Services, University Center C212 (610-758-4152) as early as possible in the semester. You must have documentation from the Academic Support Services office before accommodations can be granted.
