AME 3623: Embedded Real-Time Systems
(Spring 2006)

This course provides an introduction to integrated hardware/software solutions in computational systems with sensing and actuation. Today, devices including microwave ovens, VCRs, high-speed trains, automobiles, cochlear implants, and artificial limbs routinely employ a variety of embedded microcontrollers for process control. We will explore the concepts fundamental to these applications while designing and building our own robot controllers.

The goals of this course include:

This is a very hands-on class: every student will be involved in the design, implementation, and programming for the laboratory exercises. Note that this component of the class will involve a non-trivial amount of time; students should plan their schedules accordingly.
