Introduction and methods

Looking for a project where you actually learn practical software development? In this course you can show off your newly developed embedded software skills by putting together a large scale system consisting of a wide range of functionalities! This project makes you take a step into the most modern edge of software development for embedded systems, we implement a system for IoT-based autonomous aircraft landing for future airliners. In other words, a system based on embedded real-time processing devices, secure web connectivity and cloud-based high performance back ends. The project does not only focus on the implementation of the algorithms in these parts, but also something every embedded software designer faces sooner or later: the interfacing of the parts. We offer you the opportunity to participate in this project and let loose your engineering skills! Creativity and innovation are the key points to succeed as we give you free hands to pick all the software pieces together, and you show us the result of you innovative thinking in a project which can be applied in real industrial products today. ...

About the Development of Secure Embedded Systems Specialization

Three people died after the crash landing of an Asiana Airlines aircraft from Seoul, Korea, at San Fransisco International Airport (SFO) on July 6, 2013. The American National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) established that the crash most probably was caused by the flight crew's (in)actions. Three teenage girls lost their lives; two in the airplane and another was accidentally run over by a firetruck. The human factor is often cause for accidents. NTSB and others report that more than 50 percent of plane crashes is caused by pilot error (and for road accidents it is even 90 perc.) Correctly designed safety and security critical systems can prevent these errors. After following this course successfully, you are able to develop secure embedded systems that are at the core of these safety and security critical systems. You are even challenged to program your own landing guiding system in our capstone project. If you are interested in building secure embedded systems for the benefit of humanity, this specialization is for you! EIT Digital has chosen 3 MOOC topics of industrial interest, namely: 1) Embedded design and hardware, 2) Security in embedded connectivity and 3) Real-Time systems. These MOOCs show what it takes to program Internet-of-Things systems. We focus on tools used in the modern IoT industry, and we push for a practical learn-by-programming approach in which you are exposed to the actual development in an early stage. We hope to see you soon!...
