Embedded Technologies, Inc.

Advanced Learning Platform & Solutions

Description

With embedded systems becoming ubiquitous, there is a growing need to teach and train upcoming engineers to be well-versed in their design and development. ALPS is meant to enable University students to evaluate several new displays, sensors, communication and I/O interfaces, hence introducing them to a rich and wide world of Embedded Systems which is indeed a unique blend of Academic and Industrial utility. The multidisciplinary nature of this gives students exposure to latest industry related technologies. This platform proposes a generic architecture that allows easy integration of predefined peripherals. The presence of multiple displays gives students a visual/interactive experience and a sense of accomplishment, while reinforcing the theoretical concepts. Truly this product is meant to redefine our slogan “Embedding Intelligence.”
