Acerca del Curso

This course is intended for the Master's student and computer engineer who likes practical programming and problem-solving! After completing this course, you will have the knowledge to plan and set up a real-time system both on paper and in practice. The course centers around the problem of achieving timing correctness in embedded systems, which means to guarantee that the system reacts within the real-time requirements. Examples of such systems include airbags, emergency breaks, avionics, and also multi-media systems like video playback and QoS in web servers. The course teaches how to plan real-time systems, in theory, using established mathematical proofs and how to implement them in practice by using the most common scheduling methods. We also learn and how to program the system in the C language using the FreeRTOS real-time kernel. Finally, we have a look at the future of real-time systems namely multi-core real-time systems! This course focus on the learn-by-doing approach with many examples and real-world programming assignments. We have 5 modules, each with a gentle graded quiz in the end and 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! -Simon Holmbacka / Åbo Akademi University Check out our whole curriculum:

That course is really helpful for intermediate embedded systems students who already know about microcontrollers but wants to take his skills to the next level. I really recommend such a course!

Real-Time systems are very demanded nowadays. Excellent course to review some aspects in this field or to learn everything from the beginning.

The course is quite focused on schedulers and more lectures on FreeRTOS would be welcome. Although deeper and more extensive explanations about queues, mutexes, semaphores... and many other RTOS features, would be necessary, on average the course is interesting because you learn to understand how the core of any RTOS work.

It was really helpful course, thanks for providing such course.

+ Points - Nice arrangements of the topics, quiz , videos and assignments etc. Good help on the administrative queries etc.

Can be improved in terms of the coding assignments . We can provide some more coding assignments with different schedulers.

If you don't know how to start with RTOS, this course will be OK for you. I think it was overly theoretical and I wish there were more "real-life" programming assignments/lectures. Also adding "model" responses after you send out your work would be beneficial. Despite those drawbacks, I still recommend it.

Strongly focused on the scheduling methods. Good introduction to freertos. I think it could be really helpful to have written notes along with the videos. I know it is a lot work to prepare this kind of document for a MOOC, but it would be a big benefit.

Nice overview of the task schedulers for RT-OSes, but nothing more. A bit sad that the quizzes are not great and that problems with programming tasks are not fixed.

Still it's the best course in the speciality.

Excellent introductory course to RTOS. Although the course is very theoretical, it is very clear and gives you the tools to continue learning on your own or to take more advanced courses.

Good introduction to RTOS concepts. A little theoretical, there could have been a project to do in the end which would have made the course objectives more clear.

It was good amount of leaning new things related to RTOS. This course gives you knowledge to design and choose the RTOS based on your requirement of the project.

Good mixture of theoretical and practical applications. Could use access to course slides, and maybe a larger practical assignment.

Course is good. The only point is some more help should be provided with the tools that are being told for the assignment.

Concepts of Real Time Systems explained nicely.Though FreeRTOS software needs to be explained in little depth.

It is a very good course but in practical tasks a better accompaniment and clearer instructions are necessary

More Tutorial for Programming should have been given. Otherwise, the course was very nice and informative.

Great course, sometimes hard to follow for newbies. Some instructions are a bit ambiguous or unclear.

It was indeed a very good course, but it would be best if it taught coding from basics too!!

It would be helpful if there are PDF slides which summarize all knowledge to download.

The course is pretty useful to get familiar with a few basic concepts of the RTOS.

Very useful information but it was difficult to follow at times. Simple things like the use of pointers/markers on the slides while lecturing could have gone a long way.

The material and the way of teaching also was too dry. The language used was far from 'easy to understand' and doesn't deliver the information easily.
