Acerca del Curso

This course is intended for the Bachelor and Master's students, who like practical programming and making IoTs applications! In this course we will talk about two components of a cyber physical system, namely hardware and operating systems. After completing this course, you will have the knowledge of both hardware components and operating systems. You are able to plan and use embedded operating systems in resource-constraint devices for Internet-of-Things (cyber physical system) applications. In addition, you can use Cooja simulation for designing and simulating wireless sensor network applications. We have 4 modules, each with a graded quiz in the end and finally we have one peer reviewed programming assignment In case you have no experience with C programming, please check you a practical course like: The course is actually quite fun at the end when you are playing around with Cooja simulation for IoTs applications. So you can create and simulate your own design for sensor network applications. A lot of features and examples of Contiki and Cooja can be explored via assignments. There are some optional assignments of wireless sensor network applications for students who want to explore more about embedded OS in IoTs applications. - Marco Ramirez /University of Turku - Igor Tcarenko/ University of Turku - Nguyen Gia Tuan /University of Turku Check out our whole curriculum:

Initially it seemed easy and what I already knew... but the week 3 and 4 had alot of new and interesting stuff. It was great eventually... Especially the OS part and some practicals

Excellent introduction to Embedded Systems development that could serve as platform for further studies and research. A valuable pedagogy.

The course has a lot of useful information. It is paced very well for their intended audience (undergraduate/graduate students).

It should be improved in terms of assignments, practice and mention more resources for further reading/practice.

Instructor is very good.His explanation about CONTIKI is simple super.Course Structure is very good.But,in my opinion require little bit elaborated explanation about ASSIGNMENT.Rather than everything is fine.

Thanks to COURSERA.

This course gave me an overview on the Embedded Hardware and Operating System. It is not particularly designed for hands-on experience or practical skills. But still, a good course for beginners like me.

The Setup and Installation of software and package handling for the assignments could've been better. Overall,it was great course and a great exposure to something new!

Good Introduction to Embedded Systems and operating systems, discuss interesting topics and the architecture of OS, a little hard and challenging but it worth it.

Final assignment is very interested but unclear and lack of supporting document or material to help student finish assignment correctly.

Some Document has the errors, I can not click to access to the link and some time this document not clearly for understanding.

Assignment documents and the layout of the learning pages are a bit sloppy at places, but the content is indeed interesting.

Really nice course. In special when deal with Contiki OS and Cooja Simulator to stimate ennergy consumption of nodes.

Good introduction to embedded systems development with "OS". but it needs to include better & more code examples

this course is little bit out of date , now when looking for new board I find that RIOT os is leading

It's good, but I like to install it into a real microcontroller and application.

The course is useful to achieve a basic knowledge about operating system for embedded devices; however, it is really basic. Moreover, it is hard to find a well define content line: there's often the perception of jumping from a topic to another and then back again.

The real minus of the course is that material (both contents and exercises) is pretty old an not updated.

Finally, I don't appreciated very much the peer-graded approach since, while being useful to have exercises, it slows down the achievement of a certificate when the course has a limited number of enrolled.

The topic is definitely interesting. The course, however, does not go very deep into the topic. The assignments are not well explained and the grading criteria is severely deficient and does not help students or reviewers understand what is expected. The assignments are not well coupled with the presented material. Week 4 Assignment 2, for example, is about Contiki/Cooja analysis tools, but there is no such topic covered in the course.

This is a good course to follow to get an overall idea about embedded OS and to learn the difference between them. Assignments are not that good because there are a lot of errors in those questions. Contiki and TinyOS installation guide is not updated and some commands are not valid with recent ISO images.

The video lectures are good with valuable information, and the course gives you a broad introduction to embedded systems and embedded operating systems. Although quizzes and assignments are low quality and don't help you with your understanding (that's why I give 3/5).

The Course was good not great it has many things but week 4 seemed like it was rushed and some of the links are outdated and need to be updated with proper guidelines . For the basics part it was good but last 2 weeks just seemed too rushed

It gives a brief introduction to everything. But sometimes it is hard to understand because the lectures are without any figures or charts.
