The area of embedded systems and their interconnection is of utmost importance now-a-days. The technological evolution, and widespread use, of small electronic devices with processing and communication capabilities, creates the potential for the development of new applications in several different domains. Areas such as industrial control, automotive, home automation, surveillance systems, sensor networks applied to the monitoring of wild life, environment, or buildings, are examples of such potential and ubiquity. The importance of this area cannot be ignored in an electrical and computer engineering course.
