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: https://www.coursera.org/learn/arduino–platform The course is actually quite …

    This course represents a nice introduction into the field of Real Time Systems. The FreeRTOS assignments are very interesting and useful for a deeper understanding of the concepts presented in this course.

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

    I thought the course did a good job of helping me to learn about RTOS scheduling and the Simso simulator. It would have been nice to have more detail about the specifics of context switching and what happens to the CPU stack when switching from one task to another. There were a few times where the homework wasn’t coupled with the video lectures. There were very few explanations about how to use FreeRTOS and I think the basic assumption is that an intermediate C programming could pick that up pretty fast. There were also a few mistakes in the video lectures. Overall, I thought it was a good course and I have not found very many online courses that offer information about real time systems.

    Assignments are quite vague in instructions and more in depth coverage on RTOS application in assignments would be more helpful.

    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 is not a beginner level course. Very good theory. Tutorials on FreeRTOS would have been helpful for those who have not used any RTOS api before. Assignments are good but more advanced questions would have been helpful to get a better grasp on RTOS. Request you to provide advance level course. Overall very good material and teaching. Thanks a lot.

    It is a great course to understand the fundamentals of real time systems. However more hands on programming assignments are required to have a better understanding of FreeRTOS. Also, the mathematical equations involved in the design of schedulers should be explained with their underlying proofs. Putting the equations simply on slides doesn’t convey the idea behind the concepts. The course introduces you to good reference materials where the concepts are explained in a very simple and lucid way. Overall the course has great content and is worth attending for master students and working professionals.

    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.

    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.

    This is an excellent. Most of us know Operating System very well. But when we add “Realtime” to it then it turns out we have just some general idea about it. This course lets us gain deep insight into Realtime system and let’s us know what to expect from a real time system.

    It’s one of the best courses I had. The most important thing is that possibility of illustrating the course theoretical concepts with real examples using a well known OS such as FreeRTOS. Thanks Mr. Holmbacka and all the team.

    I recommend this course to developers who want to get understanding about RTOS and work with it .. the videos is so short that you can get boring like other courses and the assigments are really hlpfull. thanks so much to EIT Digital online university and special thanks to Dr. Simon who gave a brief explaination to the topics

    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.

    The content is really very rich but the problem is that it is not consistent in terms of quizzes with assignments and videos. I think that being a peer graded assignment, it takes a lot of time to get a grade.
