The course aims to provide an introduction to design, analysis, and implementation of networked embedded systems and real-time applications from a computer science approach.
The student should after completed course be able to:
- Describe the main principles of real-time communication,
- Use suitable principles and standards in design and evaluation of sensor networks and wireless communication protocols for small digital transmitters,
- Design and implement software and system solutions for wireless embedded systems,
- Evaluate, analyze and present, orally or in writing, the content of research articles in embedded computer systems and real-time applications.
Topics covered in this course include concepts, technologies, and protocols for low-power and resource-restricted wireless networks; embedded system architectures; and real-time system concepts; scheduling theory and design principles.
Computer Engineering, BA (ABC), 60 credits, including TCP/IP Internetworking, 6 credits and Operating System, 7.5 credits. Mathematics BA (AB), 22.5 credits, including Mathematical Statistics and Discrete Mathematics.
