To provide interesting functions and characteristics the systems often are designed as distributed systems where their computer nodes cooperate via wired and/or wireless networks, interoperating and integrated via: operating systems, schedulers, protocols, middleware, data structures and algorithms. To enable interaction with the surrounding system and its environment the computer nodes in such embedded and distributed real-time systems typically contain a combination of sensor, actuator, processing, memory and communication devices.
There will be 7 lectures, 7 seminars and 3 (half size group) simulation-labs.
The course will start with an introductory lecture and a preparation for the following seminars during the first week followed by lecture and discussion seminars the following weeks. Some spare time at the end of the discussion seminars will be assigned to selection and discussion of project work topics.
The character of the seminars are planned to take the form of a dialogue between students guided and perhaps triggered by the teacher. To simplify this all students are supposed to have prepared each seminar by reading the papers, intended to be discussed, and each student shall also to write down 3-5 interesting questions related to the papers, to be handed in to the teacher via e-mail before the seminar. These and other more spontaneous questions shall be discussed and if possible answered by the students at the seminars. At the end of each seminar the students are supposed to answer a short quiz that will be part of the examination.
The project and paper work will have some time scheduled for advice and half way presentations.
