Webinar: Enabling Project-Based Learning with MATLAB, Simulink, and Target Hardware
- Date: Friday, May 31st, 2013
- Time: 8:00am - 9:00am
Also at 1 p.m.
- Circuit design
- 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
