    Learning Outcomes

    On successful completion of this subject students should possess limited experience of 'hard' real time constraints and how to construct reliable programs for such environments; experience with several modern computer-based control system technologies in realistic situations; and the ability to select the most appropriate technique for a control problem.


    Introduction to Software Engineering, and Introduction to Computer Engineering, and Electronic Systems and Software Technology 2.


    Typical constraints and programming strategies for 'hard' real time software systems are introduced. The unit then moves to emphasise computer control of processes as its primary example of real time computing. The three control technologies of proportional-integral-differential (PID) control, fuzzy logic control, and neural network control are treated in detail via experimental laboratory work and assignments.
