Abstract

This paper describes an approach to the teaching of the design and development of embedded computer systems. Traditional lectures in computer architecture and real time software are complemented by project-based learning with appropriate support sessions. The logistics of the group project are described, as is the approach to assessment. Student response is described anecdotally and future plans for the project are discussed.
