Webinar: Acoustics and Vibrations Analysis

  • Time: 1:00pm - 2:00pm

To register: https://event.on24.com/eventRegistration/EventLobbyServlet?target=registration.jsp&eventid=590435&sessionid=1&key=905A15D399819CFCDBD79299D728DB20&partnerref=comsol&sourcepage=register

For speakers, microphones, and sensors, acoustics and vibrations
analysis is used to verify and optimize their design. Other effects
that can be considered include resonance, vibratory displacement,
and chatter. This webinar will show how COMSOL Multiphysics is used
to simulate these effects to better understand your applications.
The webinar will include a live demonstration with examples using
mechanical vibrations and acoustics simulated in COMSOL Multiphysics,
and it will end with a Q&A session.

To register: https://www.mathworks.com/company/events/webinars/wbnr76441.html?s_v1=53638046_1-4LZGZ

In this webinar professor Richard Hill will explain how you can use redesigned Controls Tutorials for MATLAB and Simulink to invert the classroom and create a more active learning environment. The popular web-based tutorials now feature a modern design, enhanced content, and the latest control and analysis capabilities available in MATLAB and Simulink. Learn about the various ways in which the Controls Tutorials have been used in control system courses to enhance how students learn essential control design techniques.

The webinar will also show how you can engage students in Project-Based learning using new capabilities in Simulink for easily interfacing with low-cost target hardware such as Arduino and LEGO® MINDSTORS® NXT.

Please allow approximately 60 minutes to attend the presentation and Q&A session.

About the Presenter: Dr. Richard Hill is an assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at University of Detroit Mercy. Since joining the faculty he has spent two visiting stints at Ford Motor Company first working on diagnostics for hybrid electric vehicles and then to develop a course on the modeling and control of advanced electric vehicles.  His research interests lie in the areas of vehicle control, control and diagnosis of discrete-event systems, modular and hierarchical control, and engineering education. He received the Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.

Webinar: Heat Transfer Simulation in Materials Processing

  • Time: 1:00pm - 2:00pm

To register: http://video.webcasts.com/events/pmny001/viewer/index.jsp?eventid=45748

Conjugate heat transfer occurs via conduction, convection, and even
radiation in the case of high processing temperatures, therefore
representing a full-featured heat transfer and CFD application.  
This webinar demonstrates how multiphysics analysis is required
for accurate simulation by using COMSOL Multiphysics. Attendees
can participate in the live Q&A session held at the conclusion
of the webinar.

Webinar: Modeling Logic for Robot Control

  • Time: 8:00am - 9:00am

Also at 1 p.m.

To register: https://www.mathworks.com/company/events/webinars/wbnr76542.html?s_v1=53638046_1-4LZGZ

In this webinar, you will learn how to model control logic and run it on hardware.  After an initial introduction to state machines, we will build logic to control the various modes of operation of a robot. Through an example, you will see an easy way to create, simulate and animate mode logic using Stateflow. You will then see how to run and try out your design on low-cost target hardware, such as Arduino®, LEGO® MINDSTORMS® NXT, and Raspberry Pi without any programming.

About the Presenter: Siddharth Sharma works in the technical marketing group for Stateflow at the MathWorks. Before joining the MathWorks, he was in software development and has a background in mechanical engineering.

Webinar: Image Processing with MATLAB

  • Time: 8:00am - 9:00am

Also at 1 p.m.

To register: https://www.mathworks.com/company/events/webinars/wbnr63303.html?s_v1=53847736_1-4LZGZ

Images are everywhere, from everyday devices like cameras and smart phones to specialized devices for medical imaging, automotive safety, industrial automation, and more. Each of these uses for image processing has unique challenges. MATLAB and Image Processing Toolbox provide a flexible environment to explore design ideas and create unique solutions for imaging systems.

In this webinar MathWorks engineers will highlight existing and new features in Image Processing Toolbox such as:

  • Inspecting and analyzing images to extract meaningful information
  • Registering two images for alignment and data fusion
  • Detecting circular objects in an image using Hough transform
  • Working with large data sets to improve performance and memory use

We will also discuss Image Acquisition Toolbox and Computer Vision System Toolbox. Previous knowledge of MATLAB is not required.

Please allow approximately 60 minutes to attend the presentation and Q&A session.

Webinar: Enabling Project-Based Learning with MATLAB, Simulink, and Target Hardware

  • Time: 8:00am - 9:00am

Also at 1 p.m.

To register: https://www.mathworks.com/company/events/webinars/wbnr74589.html?s_v1=54047372_1-4LZGZ

Project-Based learning is extremely effective because students can see, hear, and touch what would otherwise be very abstract. In this webinar we will show you how MATLAB, Simulink, and the new support for low-cost target hardware can easily interface with a broad range of very affordable hardware and experiments to teach courses focused on:
  • Mechatronics
  • Circuit design
  • Programming
  • Controls
  • Robotics
  • Renewable energy

Users of Simulink can automatically generate stand alone applications to run in real-time on devices such as the Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and LEGO® MINDSTORMS® NXT without the need for either MATLAB Coder™ or Simulink Coder™. Using this new capability, we explore integrating simulation and hardware to show the following concepts:

  • Reading sensors and writing to actuators
  • Interactive prototyping of algorithms for control and signal processing
  • Testing algorithms with physical hardware components
  • Deploying real-time algorithms to stand alone hardware
  • Integrating algorithms with robots and real-world systems
