About the course
Project work in groups covering the following areas: development environments for embedded software, resource aware programming, hardware programming, developing multi-threaded software, inter-process communication with shared memory and message passing, programming using real time operating systems, fault detection and testing, and fault tolerance and fault recovery.
To pass, you must be able to:
develop embedded software of high quality using high level programming in e.g. C
develop embedded systems based on real time operating systems
develop software on embedded hardware platforms taking limitations such as memory size, processor capacity, and bandwidth into account
develop correct and efficient software using fault detection and other test systems.
