Provide the students with the ability to develop embedded systems subject to real-time constraints using, when appropriate, real-time operating systems.
- Ability to define the functional and non-functional requirements of embedded systems, in particular timing requirements
- Ability to model embedded systems applications exposing their concurrency
- Ability to use embedded systems development tools
- Ability to define and use computing platforms based on micro-controllers with real-time operating systems
- Ability to design and build embedded systems using the modeling, tools and platforms referred above.
- Introduction to embedded systems and related basic concepts
- Hardware architectures for embedded systems (CPUs and interfaces)
- Software architectures for embedded systems
- Compiling, linking and debugging
- Basic concepts on operating systems (memory management, process management, e inter-process communication and synchronization)
- Introduction to software for critical systems (fault tolerant software architectures)
- Real-time scheduling (periodic and aperiodic tasks, using static tables, fixed and dynamic priorities)
- Programming with real-time POSIX profile
- Lectures: slides on related topic, presentation and discussion of examples.
- Lab classes: practice the concepts addressed in the lectures using different hardware platforms, initially with guided experiments, then with a mini-project.
- Lab assignment: realization of a mini-project.
- Seminars: together with the lectures, the students have to prepare, in small groups of 2 or 3, a short presentation (15-20min) on a related topic, which is then discussed among all in class.
