AbstractComputer systems for controlling industrial devices are called embedded systems (ES). Specifically the following topics will be covered: Design methodology, software design, real-time scheduling and operating systems, architectures, distributed embedded systems, low-power and low-energy design, architecture synthesis.
ObjectiveIntroduction to industrial applications of computer systems; understanding specific requirements and problems arising in such applications. The focus of this lecture is on the implementation of embedded systems using formal methods and computer-based synthesis methods.
ContentComputer systems for controlling industrial devices are called embedded systems (ES). ES not only have to react to random events in their environment in a timely manner, they also have to calculate control values from continuous sequences of measurements. Embedded computer systems are connected to their environment though sensors and actors. The great interest in the systematic design of heterogeneous reactive systems is caused by the growing diversity and complexity of applications for ES, the requirement for low development and testing costs, and by progress in key technologies. Specifically the following topics will be covered: Design methodology, software design, real-time scheduling and operating systems, architectures, distributed embedded systems, low-power and low-energy design, architecture synthesis.

AbstractThe seminar will cover advanced topics in networked embedded systems. A particular focus are cyber-physical systems and sensor networks in various application domains.
ObjectiveThe goal is to get a deeper understanding on leading edge technologies in the discipline, on classes of applications, and on current as well as future research directions.
ContentThe seminar enables Master students, PhDs and Postdocs to learn about latest breakthroughs in wireless sensor networks, networked embedded systems and devices, and energy-harvesting in several application domains, including environmental monitoring, tracking, smart buildings and control. Participants are requested to actively participate in the organization and preparation of the seminar.
