Samenvatting

EagleScience’s customer Elitac found their current embedded platform for tactile devices was not good enough for the future use. The current platform is rigid and the kernel is fixed to the other applications and elements. If the applications, hardware or devices are changed, the kernel will also be changed. Therefore, they decided to develop a new embedded platform for their tactile devices with an independent kernel which is flexible and extendable.
This report describes the research process and conclusions about finding the feasible solutions to solve the problem, architecture design and functional design to implement the product.
The goal of this report is to provide a clear description about the execution of this project.
The report contains six chapters: introduction, theoretical framework, methods, results, discussions, and conclusions and recommendations.
In order to achieve the goal of this project, the Delft Design Method was applied in this project to help choosing the solutions and making evaluation. The research is divided into four phases in the result chapter: the analysis phase, the idea phase, the concept phase and the materialization phase. In the analysis phase the problem was analyzed and some solutions was established as ideas. In the idea phase some evaluations were made to choose two ideas as concepts. In the concept phase the two ideas was diverged into four sub-concepts, some tests and evaluations were made to choose on out of four as the final concept. In the materialization phase the chosen concept was put in the general architecture design, and the functional design were based on the general architecture.
The choice of the kernel is the most important part in this project. The choice of kernel were made from five ideas: bare-metal, Java ME, real time Linux, non-Linux real time operating system and Windows Embedded. The final choice of the kernel is a non-Linux real time operating system called OPENRTOS. Based on this kernel, the flexible and extendable general architecture were made. The architecture includes six parts: the remote platform, the services, the applications, the patterns, the drivers and the kernel. In this thesis project, the functional design of one service called “body coordinate service” was made.
Based on the research and the functional design, the real implementation can be made by reading this report.
