Requisite(s): 48441 Introductory Digital Systems
Fields of practice: Electrical Engineering major
Embedded Systems are found in devices used in consumer, industrial, automotive, medical and other fields. They also underpin the Internet of Things. Embedded systems typically collect data from sensors and/or direct human inputs, transmit and aggregate the data within a central system and then take action or inform decision-making based on the data.
This studio subject provides an opportunity for students to design, build and evaluate an embedded system based around a microcontroller. Students work from concept stage to realisation of a final product with weekly milestones. Students identify their learning needs and undertake self-study to learn theory and practice needed to develop a deep understanding of the design of microcontroller-based embedded systems.
