Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The aim of the course is to familiarize students with a real-time operating systems usable in embedded systems with a microcontroller. The content of the lectures is the theory and implementation procedures of the real-time operating system. Laboratory exercises deal with practical implementation skills applied directly on the embedded system containing a microcontroller. Upon completion of the course, students are able to use the real-time operating system and implement basic tasks in engineering practice.

Summary

The course deals with the use of real-time operating systems in embedded systems where the computing core is a microcontroller. The object is the properties of the FreeRTOS operating system and the knowledge is then applied to the selected microcontroller. These include, in particular, the basic features of the operating system, its configuration, tasks and scheduler, interprocess communication, synchronization mechanisms, interrupt, time measurement, and system debugging methods.
