Abstract

Real-time systems with a substantial software component are being developed for increasingly diverse and complex applications. Explanation of the issues surrounding the development of real-time software is an important part of the curriculum of a software engineering undergraduate course. This paper describes the characteristics of real-time software development and how the Department of Mechanical, Manufacturing and Software Engineering (MMSE) has developed a laboratory to support student learning. 1 Introduction The Bachelor of Engineering Honours degree in Software Engineering offered by Napier University aims to provide students with both an understanding of the principles of software development and with experien
