How to design embedded systems that have a direct impact on their environments

As systems that directly influence their environment, embedded systems present software archi­tects with special challenges: functional safety plays just as important a role as the fact that embedded systems usually have to meet real-time requirements.
Topics such as system and software devel­opment for embedded systems and the role of software architecture within these processes as well as variant management are also dealt with in the EAM module.
