Course Overview

Central to the safe and controlled working of electric vehicles are embedded systems with microcontrollers programmed by embedded C language. An extension of C programming, Embedded C is a language used to develop embedded systems that control specific features in EVs. As there are multiple interconnected microcontrollers in electric vehicles, engineers aspiring to work on the development of embedded systems for EV applications must have a hands-on understanding of Embedded C programming.

This course will strengthen your fundamentals of Embedded C programming for automotive applications. You will learn about...

  • Input/Output Functions
  • Data Types for Embedded Programming, C Language Operators, and Memory Management
  • Control Statements, Function Prototypes, and Pointers
  • Compilation Process, Preprocessor Directives, and Arrays
  • Advanced Function Arguments
  • Stack Operations, Queue Operations
  • Finite State Machine
  • Embedded Design Patterns
  • C and Embedded C Standards
  • AUTOSAR C Rules
  • MISRA C Guidelines

To equip you with job ready and industry relevant skills that prepare you for the real-world scenario, this course comes with two projects. You will have to use Embedded C to write codes for specific applications. By the end of this course, you will have the practical skills needed to apply your understanding in the industry according to modern trends and standards.
