Module 3

Software Networked Embedded Systems

The focus of this module is on the domain software and networked embedded systems.

Technology domain: high-tech systems software and the correspondent hardware platform, including networks and system-to-system communication.

  • Hardware platforms: CPUs and buses
  • Mechatronic applications: data oriented, control oriented
  • Embedded real-time control, with examples
  • Structure of embedded automotive software
  • Tools

Domain goals:
Goal: students have a good overview of the software and platform aspects of modern high-tech systems, understand critical elements and complications, are capable of using tools and are aware of problem solving for software intensive  systems. They have practical experience in solving a problem in this domain.

Course work in this module: within module 3 the following courses are planned:

  • Unified Modelling Language (UML), using Python and/or Java
  • System Modelling Language (SYSML), using Enterprise Architect
  • Functional Safety, according to ISO 26262
  • Project Management
  • Professional/Personal development
  • Technical writing
  • Dutch language
  • (Additional workshops on the project if required)

This module will be executed in close cooperation with the PDEng programs Software Technology and Automotive Systems Design
