IS1204 IT Project Course, part 2 7.5 credits

IT-projekt, del 2 - Autonoma inbyggda system

Just like its alternative sister ID1003 (IT Project Course, Part 2 - Software Techniques), this course supplements and supports the course IV1301 (IT Project Course, Part 1 - Methodology).

The methods studied in IV1301 are applied to an actual embedded system, such as an aotunomous robot. The participants experience methods and techinques relevant to the design of an autonomous embedded system. This work is performed in a group, and is constrained by limited resources and limited time. 

After the course, the participants will be able to participate in design projects for mixed hardware-software systems; design complete technical systems of limited size, including digital and/or analog electronics, and including mechanics and/or software; select developmental process methodologies for different kinds of projects; apply important methods, and use important tools, for lean development - including tools for configuration management, version management, test-driven development, and project planning; use well-known methods for efficient communication, such as oral presentation, written documentation, visual project communication, or communication for intra-project conflict management; reflect upon a completed project, in order to improve future projects with similar properties.
