    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.

    Learning Outcomes

    On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

    1. Understand embedded system, microcontrollers, and general purpose computers;

    2. Articulate the key functional units of related microcontrollers; and

    3. Illustrate the key concepts of the unified modelling language (ULM) to an embedded system design and use of tools to edit, compile, assemble, link, and debug program.
