Lab Workshop on Embedded RTOS – Batch 2

Session Date : 4th December, 2023

SKU: NIELIT WORKSHOP | Starts on 4th December 2023 Category:


In today’s increasing global market place, successful companies are finding that investments in hardware and software are no longer enough to maintain a competitive edge. Human elements with specialised engineering and design skills have become the essential part of the equation. Given the complex tasks that today’s computing devices are required to perform, it’s crucial that the operating systems that drive them are stable, fast and efficient. This course provides foundational materials on RTOS for embedded applications, including task scheduling, memory allocation and resource management. The objective of the course is to give students solid introductory knowledge on Real-Time OS and how to develop applications using RTOS. Learners gain an understanding of the RTOS architecture and acquire the practical skills involved in building an embedded system solutions using FreeRTOS. As a part of this course, we are introducing a remote hardware Lab, and the participants will be able to do the experiments using this platform. This course can be very useful for UG as well as PG students, along with research scholars in the initial phases of their PhD study and course work.
