24 svarande

Completely»9 37%
To some extent»12 50%
Not at all (not relevant for the course)»3 12%

Genomsnitt: 1.75

- Absolutely, but it would have been fun to work more with the implementation of the algorithm and try it in a simple simulator for example to the some more advanced testing than looking at matlab plots» (Completely)
- The assignment was interesting, could be handled in Simulink for a more "realistic" working environment.» (To some extent)
- was quite long» (To some extent)
- there should some more systems for which we would be finding logic , i mean some non-existing or upcoming systems....just algorithm for everytwo weeks maybe ..so that we would end up at something creative at the end of 8 weeks(each batch would deelop some thing significant)» (To some extent)
- It was more data analysis than designing a safety system, but gave some understanding of the "workflow" and the problems of data handling» (To some extent)
- The one thing we struggled most was with Matlab. ALL focus was on solving the 100 million problems that occurred in Matlab. Is that really a goal in this course? » (Not at all (not relevant for the course))
- All we had to do was matlab coding and there was only less time for us to concentrate on the objective of the assignment. 90 % of the time was spent in coding and debugging matlab and only the rest was for FCW and analysis. this task is humongous for people who have less exposure to matlab. » (Not at all (not relevant for the course))

- and algorithm development» (Real time application)
- The main problem in the lab was actually the data handling and pre-processing.» (Algorithm development)

- I thought that it would be a technical course, but it drifted (too much for my taste) into methodology and general aspects.» (Fair)

24. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- The lab !! »
- Much focus on the lab»
- The nature of the assignment»
- Industrial visits on friday.»
- Most things»
- the course hands out are too much.»
- the lab and visit part»
- The lab, with a bit more focus on the system aspects than on data processing.»

25. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- I would like to have more of system design and more on how the electronics are used to develop the system. There should definitely be more marks awarded for the lab . It was a lot of work . But i was disappointed with only 10 pts for that .»
- More exercises, more human factors integration »
- More emphasis on algorithm development and the challenges of real-time systems.»
- The lab work needs some modification.»
- Assignments, Assistants attitudes, Group size in assignment, The slides need more text.»
- Handouts before the lecture to take useful notes»
- Contunuity in some lectures and FOT»
- It"s better to work in the lab more than this year.»
- no»
- More technical lectures, more in-depth information about systems, implementations etc.»

26. Additional comments

- Lectures where generally very good.»
- I think the lab part can be expanded »
