Many engineering systems today involve the integration of computer hardware and software in the form of embedded algorithms and device controllers, particularly those operating in real time. Examples include digital signal processors (DSP's) for telecommunications systems, real time process control and device driver software to control hardware devices. It is essential that modern engineers understand the theory of real-time systems and can apply the concepts in their specification, design, programming and testing.
This course aims to give students exposure to the concepts related to real time systems and event driven programming, together with practical experience in the design of advanced engineering computer applications using low level operating system functions and hardware devices.
