Creating Hardware and Software for Imbedded Systems

We are surrounded by embedded systems. The "average" car contains over 30 processors, practically any product today with electronics includes an embedded cpu. Cars, smart phones, game consoles, VR/AR gear, health care systems, remotes, & light bulbs often contain hidden "embedded" processors. This course will offer hands-on exercises using the popular open source arduino and raspberry pi platforms, and theoretical by studying OpenAPS (Open Artificial Pancreas System project). Once the class has basic knowledge of embedded programming and hardware skills, they will create embedded systems that sense, make decisions and act using a combination of DC motors, accelerometers, switches, servos, light sensors and cameras.
