This training program has been designed to provide a thorough understanding of Embedded Systems basics and principles using 8051 based 8-bit microcontrollers and then teach advanced Embedded Systems using ARM Microcontrollers. This course also covers Embedded Networking protocols (like SPI, CAN, I2C and USB) and RTOS. It tackles all the basic components of Embedded Systems in isolation and also creates an understanding on how to integrate these components, to design, program and develop a complete system. The knowledge imparted in this training will help you in getting a job in Embedded Systems domain. 

This training contains coverage of technical knowledge that would provide a definite edge in core sector job interviews. The level of C programming taught in this course is at par with what fresh engineers work on, after joining their first job.

All the modules have ample hands-on and lab sessions, with more tutorials provided for further study. Each topic in this course will be matched with real-time experiments on the hardware kits. The course will end with a project that would be conceptualized, designed, implemented and tested by the trainees, with full guidance and support from the faculty.

Target audience for the program

Seminar on Embedded Systems and Robotics at ASCET, Gudur, Andhra Pradesh

On March 26, 2014, I delivered two sessions of my seminar "Embedded Systems and Robotics using 8-bit and 32-bit Microcontrollers". Each session had an audience of about 200 students of Electronics and Communications Engineering (ECE) stream of Bachelor of Engineering (BE) program. These were all either 3rd year or 4th year students.

The seminar started with a discussion on what are Embedded Systems and where we can find them in our daily life. 

After that a brief analysis of generic Embedded Systems and their application areas was presented. After this a brief introduction to Robotics was given.

A demo of an simple obstruction sensing robot was given. This robot detects obstructions closer than 50 cm or less. If the robot detects an obstruction it stops, reverses for some time and then turns left while going forward and starts looking for the next obstruction.

The demo was followed by an explanation of the robot's components and its working.

Then the most interesting section, How to learn Embedded Systems was delivered. This section covered both Hardware and Software areas of learning.

This was followed by a brief introduction of 8-bit and 32-bit microcontrollers and their advantages & disadvantages. The seminar concluded with a discussion on skills and knowledge that Embedded Systems industry is looking for in its future employees.

The second and final demo was of the HID USB Mouse implemented using ARM9 based NXP2148 microcontroller. Here's a link to the video of the HID-Mouse. 

About the college - ASCET is part of the Audisankara Group of Institutions, Gudur, that has many colleges and around 8000 students in its rolls. Their website - http://www.audisankara.ac.in/
