Description:
Scientific computations and processing of online measured data in programming environment Python, communication with connected devices, saving and visualization of online measured data into PC using Python in real time, libraries, programming the common tasks of numerical mathematics in Python, programming graphic user interfaces, visualization, demonstration of solved problems. Classification upon the individually solved class projects. The analogies to Matlab will be discussed during the course.
