Design of Embedded Systems (DES)

Info Autumn 2020

See also the Robot Lab site and the Xenomai exercises.

PLEASE NOTE: Some actvities of this course will be taking place on campus. In case of overregistration, students for whom the course is mandatory in their programme have first access.

General aim of this course is to acquire basic knowledge about the systematic design of embedded systems and to obtain practical experience with model-based development of such systems. Relevant topics are, for instance, timing, real-time operating systems (and experience with Real-Time Linux), scheduling, interface of software with sensors and actuators, and model-based development of a small distributed real-time application using a Domain Specific Language.
