  • About [EIT-ISE-112-K-7]: The study achievement [PROJ-Schein] proof of successful completion of the project(s) must be obtained. It is a prerequisite for the examination for PL1.

Examination achievement PL1

  • Form of examination: oral examination (30 Min.)
  • Examination Frequency: each semester

Evaluation of grades

The grade of the module examination is also the module grade.


  • Basic methods of signal analysis and the computation of characteristic and invariant descriptors (features)
  • Processing of signals from single sensors und homogeneous or heterogeneous Sensor-Arrays
  • Dimensionality reduction of high-dimensional sensor data by linear and non-linear methods, e.g. by explicit selection of features
  • Methods der cluster analysis
  • Methods for multi-dimensional sensor data analysis: projection and visualisation, fusion
  • methods for classification of sensor data: statistical pattern recognition, artificial neural networks, Methods of rule-based and fuzzy classification
  • Advanced ptimization methods for parameter- or structure optimization of sensor systems
  • Relations, dependencies, and optimization potential between sensor realization, electronics, and algorithmics.
  • New aspects of reliable sensor systems (self-x properties)

Competencies / intended learning achievements

After completing this module you can...
  • ... explain the relevant principals and methods from the field of Computational Intelligence, in particular for the field of sensor technology.
  • ... employ selected relevant methods and their configuration in a common design environment (Matlab).
  • ... design, validate, and optimize complete application-specific systems.
  • ... adapt and extend the achieved implementation to changing needs.
  • ... explain the interdependence of system solution with available, potentially restricted implementation platforms (Sensors/Hardware).
