Course aim

To assist students in developing the knowledge and skills to design and implement embedded systems to control real-world applications using modern hardware, software and communication technologies

Course content

This course is aimed at providing practical experience through a team-based embedded system design and implementation project. Students will be required to undertake the design of an embedded system to reliably perform a designated task, such as controlling a device. They will be required to follow the steps associated with sound engineering design methodology, starting from clearly defining the problem, developing necessary technical specifications and system level design to the design of the subsystems and communication interfaces, integration and testing. The course includes some instructions in design methodology, tools and technical aspects relevant to the project.
