A warm welcome to the Automotive Embedded Systems & Applications course by Uplatz.
An embedded system is an electronic or computer system which is designed to control, access the data in electronics based systems. This system includes a single chip microcontroller such as cortex, ARM and also microprocessors, FPGAs, DSPs, and ASICs. Nowadays the usage of embedded systems is widespread. But the software that is programmed into the microcontroller is capable of solving only a limited range of problems.
Embedded systems have a huge variety of applications that varies from low to high-cost consumer electronics to industrial equipment, medical devices to weapon control systems, aerospace systems and entertainment devices to academic equipment, and so on. Embedded systems span all features of our present life.
Embedded systems are being extensively used in Automotive industry. Embedded Systems have taken total control on automobiles. From small wiper controls to large and complicated anti-lock brake controls, everything in automobiles is under control of Embedded System. Electronic Control Units ECU is being used in automobiles. ECU consist of microcontroller and digital signal processors. Mercedes, BMW cars and other lavish vehicles make use of a variety of controllers used in Embedded Systems. An advanced embedded system in automobiles has increased rapidly in the past two decades. Every year automobile manufacturers pack embedded systems into their cars for different functionalities like ignition, security and audio systems. The technological innovations of the embedded system within the vehicle are being ambitiously challenged to make the vehicle energy efficient, network savvy and safer. In 1968, the Volkswagen used first embedded system in the automobile industry.
Today, a typical automobile on the road has computer controlled electronic systems, and the most commonly used embedded systems in a vehicle include Airbags, anti-lock braking system, black box, adaptive cruise control, drive by wire, satellite radio, telematics, emission control, traction control, automatic parking, in-vehicle entertainment systems, night vision, heads up display, back up collision sensors, navigational systems, tyre pressure monitor, climate control, etc.
Some of the key areas where the embedded systems are currently used in automobiles
Drive by wire
Adaptive cruise control
Anti-lock braking system
Tyre pressure monitor
In-vehicle entertainment system
Backup collision sensors
Heads up display
An embedded system plays a key role in automobiles due to its flexibility as well as versatility. The electronics revolution has controlled within the design of automobiles like the fuel ignition, protection of power train crash, etc. An embedded system used in automobiles can assist in pollution control, system monitoring, etc.
At present, the microcontrollers used in automobiles mainly depend on the vehicle. For example, a normal vehicle includes around 30 -35 whereas some luxury vehicles include 70 – 75 microcontrollers.
The auto industry has a complex supply chain, so compliance with standards is easier to manage than individual, very detailed specifications.
This Automotive Embedded Systems Applications course by Uplatz covers comprehensively the description of automotive landscape, safety standards, vehicle informatics, components of automotive systems and serial interfaces followed by embedded systems & applications within the automotive industry such as CAN and LIN Bus protocol, TTP FLEXRAY, vehicle control, car communication using Bluetooth, wireless networking technologies, ZigBee, Bluetooth security, etc. This Embedded Systems in Automotive industry course also touches upon the context aware wearable devices.
