Modern mobile platforms such as smart phones, tablets and wearable devices are equipped with an increasing number of sensors. In addition to traditional components such as keyboards and touch screens, they are also equipped with cameras, microphones, inertial sensor, GPS receivers, etc. With these modalities all packed into a single platform, it is important to empower application developers with basic knowledge and practical skills in handling the signals. This module introduces the students to basic theories, concept and practical skills needed in input, processing and output of multimodal signals on mobile platforms. The students will acquire the practical skills of writing Android apps, as well as the basic signal processing skills needed to make use of sensors onboard mobile devices.
