Learning outcomes

This class aims at providing a scientific approach to the design, implementation and verification of applications based on networked embedded systems, e.g., for building automation, factory automation, healthcare, automotive, environmental control. The class will describe the main communication protocols, design/simulation/verification methodologies as well as the design of networked control systems. The contents will be taken from state-of-the-art papers and research activities directly performed by the University of Verona.

Syllabus

Theory
------

Communication protocols for networked embedded systems
- Wireless networks
- Fieldbus networks
Methodologies for networked embedded systems
- design
- simulation
- verification
Networked control systems
- description
- design techniques


Laboratory
----------

- Node programming for sensor networks
- Example of design of a networked embedded system
- Simulation of networked embedded systems
- Examples of design of networked control systems

To attend fruitfully the class, the students should know
Computer Architectures, Computer Networks, Embedded Systems Design, System Theory, SystemC, C/C++ programming.

Assessment methods and criteria

The examination consists of:

1) written test with questions about the theory and practice part of the class
2) optional project
- Bibliographic research (max 2 points, no groups)
- Experimental activity (max 3 points, max 2 people)

For the project, synergies are possibles with other classes, stage and thesis.

The final result (over 30 points) is computed by summing the result of both the written test and the project.
