On successful completion of this module, students will be able to:
demonstrate a critical understanding of a range of issues associated with the design of telematic applications;
describe a range of contrasting facilities for the design and construction of distributed applications and assess their relative applicability to real world problems;
express a mastery of the particular issues associated with the handling of multimedia traffic
show an understanding of the need for secure communications, describe various key technologies used to provide it and assess their relative applicability to real world problems.
Telematic systems are systems which combine information technology, telecommunications and possibly broadcasting. This module is designed to provide an insight into the nature and potential of telematic applications together with an understanding of the component technologies.
This module is designed to provide an insight into the nature and potential of Telematics Applications together with an understanding of the component technologies. In particular we will look at how the Internet operates and the basis it provides for telematic systems support.
