Learning outcomes of the course unit:
Advanced theoretical principles of remote control applied on real systems, using microcontrollers and standardized computer technologies. Application of acquired knowledge of control theory on selected systems in practice. Work with sensors and actuators. Programming of the conterol logic at the lowest level. Implementation of control scenarios, process data acquisition and analysis. Interconnection of embedded systems with other network capable systems and application of remote control scenarions. In this course, student will realize an individual project on the selected system for specific requiremets of remote control.
