iRobot with Chris Svec
Play • 57 min

Embedded Software Engineering is the practice of building software that controls embedded systems- that is, machines or devices other than standard computers. Embedded systems appear in a variety of applications, from small microcontrollers, to consumer electronics, to large-scale machines such as cars, airplanes, and machine tools. 

iRobot is a consumer robotics company that applies embedded engineering to build robots that perform common household tasks. Its flagship product is the Roomba, perhaps one of the most well-known autonomous consumer robots on the market today. iRobot’s engineers work at the intersection of software and hardware, and work in a variety of domains from electrical engineering to AI.

Chris Svec is a Software Engineering Manager at iRobot. He started his career designing x86 chips and later moved up the hardware/software stack into embedded software. He joins the show today to talk about iRobot, the design process for embedded systems, and the future of embedded systems programming.
