Looking for a book recommendation for embedded systems

  1. Jun 23, 2013 #1
    Can anyone recommend me a good book or online resource for embedded system's software design? Preferably a book that is either written for ARM or platform independent. I am already familiar with C programming and how to program microcontrollers (UART, SPI, timers, registers, volatile, assembly, etc..).

    I'm finding that the books I am coming across are geared too much towards beginners. What I am looking for is a book(s) that covers things like design methodologies, data structures and algorithms, and structuring software. I am working on building a robot that will do path finding autonomously, and I'm finding that I am really lacking in software design knowledge. For reference, I am a 4th year EE student and have taken one class on embedded systems, and I'm going on a year long internship before going back to school to finish my degree and take a second embedded course.

    Some topics I would be interested in:

    -Software design methodologies and how to structure embedded programs
    -Control algorithms (PID and path finding).
    -Data structure applications for embedded systems
    -Written for ARM, or platform independent
    -Programming for robots (working with sensors..)

    If anyone knows of some good resources for me, It would make me very happy. :D

    Thank you!
