AbstractAn embedded system is a computer with a dedicated function. They exist in many places ranging from the microwave to the automated sink. Unlike general purpose computers, embedded systems are small, low power, and rugged. Most of those machines can take in Programmable logic controllers (plc) which populates large factories are a form of embedded system. However, despite our reliance on embedded systems and their cheap costs, most of us do not know how they work or even think about them to begin with. The goal of this project is for me to create an embedded system that tracks an object within a certain distance. A simple task that many takes for granted, this project will explore the details behind a seemingly easy task.
