In the Spring term of 2017, I taught a graduate-level class at the Georgia Tech campus in Shenzhen, China. I have a set of rough videos for 19 lectures related to the topics of low-powered sensing, radio communications, and energy-harvesting. Below is the introductory lesson, along with the corresponding readings.
