|151-0593-00L||Embedded Control Systems||4 credits||6G||J. S. Freudenberg, M. Schmid Daners, C. Onder|
|Abstract||This course provides a comprehensive overview of embedded control systems. The concepts introduced are implemented and verified on a microprocessor-controlled haptic device.|
|Objective||Familiarize students with main architectural principles and concepts of embedded control systems.|
|Content||An embedded system is a microprocessor used as a component in another piece of technology, such as cell phones or automobiles. In this intensive two-week block course the students are presented the principles of embedded digital control systems using a haptic device as an example for a mechatronic system. A haptic interface allows for a human to interact with a computer through the sense of touch.|
Subjects covered in lectures and practical lab exercises include:
- The application of C-programming on a microprocessor
- Digital I/O and serial communication
- Quadrature decoding for wheel position sensing
- Queued analog-to-digital conversion to interface with the analog world
- Pulse width modulation
- Timer interrupts to create sampling time intervals
- System dynamics and virtual worlds with haptic feedback
- Introduction to rapid prototyping
|Lecture notes||Lecture notes, lab instructions, supplemental material|
|Prerequisites / Notice||Prerequisite courses are Control Systems I and Informatics I.|
This course is restricted to 33 students due to limited lab infrastructure. Interested students please contact Marianne Schmid (E-Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org)
