New Embedded Systems Laboratory for engineering students
National Instruments and the University of California, Berkeley, College of Engineering are working together to offer electrical engineering and computer sciences (EECS) students a new graphical system design environment in which to design, prototype and deploy their projects. The NI Embedded Systems Laboratory uses NI technologies to provide embedded system design experiential research opportunities for upper division undergraduate and graduate students.
All students in the UC Berkeley EECS department will work in the lab using NI products. In addition to combining undergraduate and graduate courses, this lab brings together members of the UC Berkeley community, including student and postdoctoral researchers and faculty staff from a variety of departments.
Ferenc Kovac, EECS Lab Manager at UC Berkeley, states: "The vision for the creation of the NI Embedded Systems Laboratory was developed by professor and department chair Dr Edward Lee, whose research interests focus on the design, modelling and simulation of embedded, real-time computational systems. Also, the lab would not be possible without the direct involvement of NI in our instructional and research program. With the NI Embedded Systems Laboratory, we are taking engineering education to the next level by giving students the tools to learn the graphical system design approach in a project-based environment."
The new lab offers a rich and open environment in which students can explore all aspects of embedded systems design, from core concepts - such as models of computation, concurrency and tool-supported design methodologies - to sensors and actuators, data acquisition, interfacing and real-world applications including mechatronics, robotics and controls systems.
