Embedded Systems

Group Activity

The goal here is to learn the penetration, impact and trends of embedded systems in our world. Start with the resources I give you, then go beyond to find more.

In 15 minutes consider the questions/topics below. Create a concise 5 minute google doc presentation giving the answers to the general questions.
