Announcements | Administrative Information | Grading | Course Projects | Schedule | References



This course provides an introduction to the design, analysis and implementation of networked embedded systems that interact with physical environment. Applications of such systems include environmental monitoring, consumer electronics, medical devices, automotive systems, industrial process control, distributed robotics, and smart structures.

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 concept, scheduling theory and design principles. Other advanced topics will also be covered in this course include real-time operating systems, indoor collaborative localization techniques, and end-to-end delay analysis in wireless mesh networks. Through a well-designed course project, students will acquire skills in the design, implementation and debugging of core embedded and real-time functionality, and build applications on representative wireless real-time and embedded communication platforms.
