Recorded webinar by Professors Jim Freudenberg and Jeff Cook of the University of Michigan.
From the webinar description: "EECS 461: Embedded Control Systems is a senior/first-year graduate-level course that teaches students from diverse backgrounds the fundamentals of embedded control systems. We use technology relevant to the local automotive industry, including the Freescale MPC 5553 microcontroller and a CAN network. We also use MathWorks tools, including MATLAB, Simulink, Stateflow, and Real-Time Workshop, for modeling, analysis, and (in the last stage of the course) automatic code generation. We develop an embedded controller for a haptic interface, or force feedback system, built by Professor Brent Gillespie of the Mechanical Engineering Department at the University of Michigan.
In this webinar, we describe the course and how it uses industry-relevant technology that both enhances students' employability and introduces them to the recent topics of research interest, such as hybrid systems, control over a network, real-time computing, and human-computer interaction."
