Assignments

Felix Krause

  • Group 1: Wednesday, 14:00 - :15:30, 0.124 (bi-weekly)
  • Group 2: Thursday, 09:45 - 11:15, 0.124 (bi-weekly)
  • Group 3: Wednesday, 15:45 - 17:15, 0.108 (bi-weekly)

Assignments are not graded and need not be submitted. They are discussed in the exercises accompanying the lectures. Even though sample solutions will be discussed in the exercises, students are encouraged to present their own versions during each exercise. Many exercises (as well as a number of lectures) will use the Ada programming language. We strongly recommend that participants familiarize themselves with Ada beforehand. It is essential that you work through at least the code samples of the "Ada in a Nutshell" tutorial linked below before attending the assignment classes.

Description

The course will focus on the specific requirements arising from programming real-time (or embedded) systems. These systems differ from the typical, more traditional information processing systems and hence place new requirements on the programming language as well as the programmer. The following topics will be discussed:

  • Introduction to real-time systems
  • Fault tolerance and error recovery
  • Scheduling
  • Concurrency
  • Communication and synchronization
  • Device communication and interrupts
