Content and learning outcomes
Intended learning outcomes
After passing the course, the students should be able to:
- Give example of embedded systems and their applications and describe the special requirements that are set to develop such systems.
- Be able to use modern integrated development environments for micro-controller/processor programming and their functionality for testing and troubleshooting.
- Explain the structure of control circuits and built-in processors
- Develop micro-controller programs for mechatronic applications including the use of I/O and external units.
- Apply knowledge in programming, and to a lesser extent in digital technology and automatic control, in the design and realization of control software on distributed embedded systems.
- Describe, explain and use software platforms, specific real-time operating systems (RTOS) and and network protocols
* Lectures to give overview and inspiration.
* Exercises there new tools and methods are introduced.
* Laboratory sessions where the presented tools and the methods are used to solve practical assignments.
Literature and preparations
Degree of Bachelor Science or the equivalent.
- Completed course MF2095 Programming in C, or equivalent.
- Completed course MF1016 Electrical engineering, or equivalent
- Completed course DD1320/DD1321 Applied programming and computer science, or equivalent.
Reading material and other literature will be distributed during the course and is available online to the extent that the copyright allows.
Examination and completion
If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.
- LAB3 - Laboration, 5.0 credits, grading scale: P, F
- TEN2 - Written examination, 4.0 credits, grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.
The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.
Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination
Opportunity to raise an approved grade via renewed examination
- All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
- In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
- In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
