Smart Embedded Systems

Smart Embedded Systems: everywhere, anytime, any platform.

Everywhere you look nowadays, you see Smart Embedded Systems: a piece of hardware with software inside. Think of your phone, robots, Smart TV’s or IoT devices. Here you learn how to build them.

Course content

Most smart embedded systems are built around an System on a Programmable Chip or small operating system and include smart technologies like image recognition or sensor fusing. In this minor you learn the basics of building these systems and how to make them smarter. We focus on new technologies loT, Security and interface design for small devices, but also give a solid understanding of vision, operating systems and FPGA’s.
