Design of Embedded Systems (DES)

Info Autumn 2017

See also the official course description, the Robot Lab site, and the Xenomai exercises.

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.

  • General outline: The course will consist of two main parts (in both parts, students work in groups of two):
  • Raspberry Pi
    Raspberry Pi
    with breadboard
    LED clock
    LED wand clock controlled
    by Xenomai program

    Small Lego EV3 Rover
