This module is centered on phase 1 prototyping. In this course, students are taught to interface microcontrollers with almost anything. Through this, students learn to build microcontroller based electronic devices that do all kinds of things. This module is founded upon open source technologies such as Arduino, Android, PHP and MySQL. Therefore, students also get to learn a bit of Web programming and Android application development alongside embedded systems development. This is estimated to take 48 hours.
