Learning Objectives

In embedded infrastructures in vehicles, the industry or the Internet of Things, many sensors and actuators are connected to a networked system.

In this internship, students will learn the concepts of networked embedded systems. Including the programming of network nodes, the application of usual technologies and protocols.

They apply the latest development and test tools. In the end, students are able to build up wireless and wired networked systems themselves. They're able to analyze existing systems and to extend their concepts and functionality.
