Control systems are one of the main application domains for embedded computing. With the complexity of applications growing rapidly, it is important that engineers who design control systems be knowledgeable about the design procedures and challenges in embedded computing technology. To meet this need, a low cost laboratory setup for integrating diverse concepts is presented, including microprocessors, control systems, programming and software development, and electronics. A project based laboratory setup allows students to develop fundamental skills in the design and implementation of embedded computer controlled systems.
