Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The aim of the course is to acquaint students with the possibilities of design and implementation of control systems. Students get an idea of ​​control systems architectures, ways of realization of control systems and methods for their activation. Emphasis will be placed on management systems for real-time.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations
Experimental work in labs


The course deals with the possibilities of realization of control systems. The individual lectures are discussed possibilities of implementing functions using microprocessor technology and gate arrays. At the same time describes the technologies that extend the capabilities of digital technology in control systems. It is a means of communication, including wireless data transmission, the possibility of analog and digital connections with the real environment, power options, and other embedded systems. The content of training is the mastery of specific technical resources - programming of microcontrollers.
