Course Summary

Connected embedded systems are the building blocks of the Internet of Things (IoT). Connected refers to the fact that the systems interface to the real world via sensors and actuators, and also that the embedded systems can communicate to one another and to cloud-based Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solutions. This module exposes students to state-of-art research and solutions for such embedded systems, including: embedded Linux, multi-platform SoC solutions, real-time interfacing, telemetry protocols for IoT, and messaging.

Connected Embedded Systems

The rapid growth of applications in the embedded systems and devices area requires skilled engineers who have the necessary specific hardware and software expertise. Taken on its own the module provides key skills that can immediately be applied in the IoT sector. It can also be taken as a sample of what is on offer for the (MEng in Electronic and Computer Engineering, the MSc in Electronic and Computer Technology and the Grad Cert in IoT) and credits obtained in this module can be applied to the programmes at a later date.
