This course teaches you the foundations of real-time systems and how to build real-time applications using FreeRTOS ,one of the most popular real-time operating systems for embedded systems. The course gives a detailed overview of the characteristics of the FreeRTOS real-time kernel, provides a detailed tutorial of the API’s to implement the various features of FreeRTOS and then goes on to build about 50 real-time projects .
This course does not assume prior knowledge of real-time systems and application programming. By the end of this course you should be able to build your own multitask FreeRTOS real-time applications which use all the features of a modern real-time application (such as semaphores, mutexes, event flags, hooks, queues, mailboxes etc )and test their performance.You should also be able to : Calculate the CPU Utilization of an RTOS, Understand Rate Monotonic Schedulers,port FreeRTOS to any ARM processor,Understand Round-Robin Schedulers,Understand Weighted-Round-Robin Schedulers, Understand First Come First Served Schedulers,Understand the Internals of an RTOS kernel, Implement and explain popular scheduling algorithms and so much more. Please take a look at the full course curriculum.
