IT473 Embedded Systems Programming

This course introduces the students to the world of embedded
systems, which are growing in numbers by leaps and bounds. The
number of embedded systems being produced worldwide easily
exceeds the number of desktops by an order of magnitude. At any
time today we may be carrying more than one embedded device at
any time (e.g Mobile Phone, Remote Control Car Key, Smart Card ..).
In some of the new cars there are several dozen embedded devices
present managing various aspects of car functionality.

Course has lot of emphasis on hands-on-work and many would have the opportunity to work on live research projects being done in the area of wildlife, Nuclear, Defense, Space, Agriculture etc. This course is also a desired course for taking Introduction to Sensor Networks course, which emphasizes device design.
