Learning outcomes
The subject is aimed at gaining knowledge about signals classification, specification, processing and applications in various communication segments. The topic accent is oriented to the industrial field. Students will acquire knowledge about DSP processing principles, about GPS principles, telemetry, and traceability.
After completion of this subject, students are oriented in the field of signal processing, modulation techniques, error detection and correction techniques for noisy channels. Students understand principles of GPS systems, systems for telemetry, and technological information systems.
The prerequisite for this subject is a successful completion of subjects in physics, in informatics, in electrical engineering and in electronic.

Assessment methods and criteria
Grade (Using a grade system), Oral examination, Analysis of the student's performance, Systematic observation of the student

Students have to participate at seminaries according to the time schedule. The subject is concluded with a viva based on a random choice of two themes and a written preparation.The result of a subject examination is expressed on a six-point scale: A "výborně" (i.e. "excellent"), B "velmi dobře" (i.e. "very good"), C "dobře" (i.e. "good"), D "uspokojivě" (i.e. "satisfactory"), E "dostatečně" (i.e. "sufficient"), F "nedostatečně" (i.e. "fail").
