Abstract/Summary Easy, available and inexpensive modules like digital radio or modems and sensors allow the practical understanding of communication technology. We present a Commercial off the Shelf (COTS) Internet platform for teaching digital and wireless communications. Our experience showed that teaching embedded systems by building a realistic system is most convincing for students as it shows theory applied and engages students better then a more theoretical approach. We created an Internet platform development environment and a Blimp UAV that introduced wireless and digital communication systems, realtime OS and embedded networking concepts.
