Course description

Fundamentals of Computer Science. Fundamentals of Digital Electronics. Knowledge of at least a programming language.

  • Software development for embedded systems: general overview. Case study: the GCC compiler and the GDB debugger.
  • Software for mobile devices. Case study: iOS and Android. iOS and Android OS architecture. Introduction to mobile Applications development; certificato requirements for the applications distribution.
  • Software for robotics. Case study: ROS (Robot Operating System). General overview. Development of a ROS node. Introduction to typical issues in autonomous robots.
  • Software for real-time embedded Operating Systems. Case study: OSEK-OS. AUTOSAR (quick overview).
  • Model-based embedded software design: general overview. Model checking and statistical model checking. Case study: Uppaal SMC.
  • Knowledge and understanding

Main concepts of design, development, test and certification of embedded software for a specific application in mobile, robotic and control systems.

  • Ability to apply knowledge and understanding

Capability of designino, developing, testing and validating an embedded software according to external requirements (user and systems requirements) and internal requirements (current regulations and certification processes).

  • Ability of evaluation

Capability of knowledge of problems and ability to identify a proper solution.

  • Ability of speaking 

Capability of communicating with a proper technical language.

  • Learning ability

Capability of autonomously improving abilities and knowledge.

Lectures for presenting general teorethical concepts and models corroborated by selected case studies, examples and exercises.

End-course written test containing open answer questions, multiple choice questions and practical exercises in order to evaluate learning and speaking abilities as well as the capability of problem understanding and solving.

Optional ora examination on the course contents, only after a positive output of the written test (mark equal or above 18/30).
