Abstract:During the spring of 2011 pressure was asserted by the department on the enrollment in CS424 Real-Time Systems due to its low enrollment. The result of that pressure was a curriculum update, removal of the CS431 Embedded Systems course requirement, and the inclusion of a laboratory section similar to CS431 which had superior enrollment. This work is the result of the development of the laboratory section of CS424 Real-Time Systems. Early development created a robot and phone based platform. The us- age of Commercial-Off-The-Shelf components allowed for rapid prototyping, allowing the platform to be fielded Fall 2011. A theme was created to link both lecture and laboratory work, with students performing presentations in class on the design of their laboratory demonstrations. Issac Asimov’s three laws of robotics were modified to better match with the classes core topics of safety, reliability, and performance.
