ARTIST2 Graduate Course on Embedded Control Systems

May 7-11, 2007       Lund, Sweden organised and funded by ARTIST 

Objectives and Scope

The Course is Full

A waiting list has been created. (March 15)

The strategic objective of the ARTIST2 Network of Excellence is to strengthen European research in Embedded Systems Design, and promote the emergence of this multi-disciplinary area. One of the main activities in the Network is the Joint Programme of Activities for Spreading Excellence. These are activities for disseminating excellence across all available channels, targeting industry, students, and other European and international research teams.


Currently, most automated control applications are implemented as embedded components. This strong interaction between Control and Embedded systems forces the need of a new generation of researchers that can combine both fields. One of the goals of ARTIST2 is the dissemination of this theory and methodology by developing and giving courses. The Control for Embedded Systems Cluster collaborates to this goal organising this course.

The main goals of the course are to provide the basic understanding of the following aspects:
- Basic concepts on embedded control systems from the control point of view
- Real-Time concepts
- Interaction between the control design and control implementation
- Real-Time implementation of control algorithms in a multitasking environment
- Analysis of the effects of the execution platform on control performance
- Control-based approaches for modeling, analysis, and design of embedded control and communications systems
- Co-design tools for analysis and simulation of embedded control systems
- Overview of different off-line scheduling problems found in embedded systems
- Embedded systems development

The course consists of lectures and laboratory exercises. Through the laboratory exercises the participants get hands-on experience of embedded control developed both using micro-controllers and using multi-thread approaches. The course ends by four industrial presentations from the telecom, automotive, automation, modeling and simulation fields.
The course is free of charge. For PhD students substantially discounted accommodation will be provided at the Anhörighotellet.

Intended Audience

The course is intended for PhD students and engineers with background in control engineering and/or real-time systems. No specific knowledge is required to understand the course, since all new concepts are explained and illustrated with concrete examples. In order to cater for the diversity in student background part of the first day is split in two parallel tracks.
