Assignment Due date: Check class calendar
Using Agile Techniques the students will design a Personal Environment Network. This will involve each student identifying and classifying whi ch components need addressing and how, using Agile development, this will be achieved. The final outcomes of this will a document or documents addressing these components, (Communication, planning, modeling, construction and deployment). Organization and Flow:• Project planning • Use case development • Requirement gathering • Rapid design • Code generation• Testing
Area of work:
Using Agile Techniques the students will design a Personal Environment Network, This will involve discussion collabo ration among the class students as they identify and classify which components need addressing and how, using Agile development, this will be achieved. The final outcomes of this will a document or documents addressing these components, (Communication, planning, modeling, construction and deployment)
The assignment will be further discussed during the lectures including time for students to discuss and work on the project.
Customer Requirements will be discussed in class
A personal Enviro nment Network is a network of ad – hoc device (cell phones or other WIFI wireless devices) that organize themselves into an active network to exchange information that is determined by each individual device. The application that allows the information excha nge is responsible for security, look and feel and protocol. The underlining communication protocol is also part of the application. Furthermore, the application is capable of routing thru a node to get a link to a node outside a original nodes transmissio n range. These devices do not need any cell tower requirements, although it is possible.
According to Wikipedia these devices follow this definition:
A mobile ad hoc network (MANET), is a self – configuring infrastructure – less network of mobile devices co nnected by wireless links. ad hoc is Latin and means “for this purpose”.
The growth of laptops and 802.11/Wi – Fi wireless networking have made MANETs a popular research topic since the mid 1990s. Many academic papers evaluate protocols and their abilities, assuming varying degrees of
Mobility within a bounded space, usually with all nodes within a few hops of each other.

Classification of some simple use cases:
1) Item identification and location
2) ad – hoc social networking
3) ad – hoc phone services (vs. cellular phone service)
