Learn how the Run on Target Hardware feature can automatically generate standalone applications to run in real-time on the Beagleboard, LEGO® MINDSTORS® NXT, and Arduino Mega.
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 Run on Target Hardware feature can easily interface with a broad range of very affordable hardware and experiments to teach courses focused on:
- Circuit design
- Renewable energy
New with Release 2012a of Simulink, the Run on Target Hardware feature can automatically generate standalone applications to run in real-time on the Beagleboard, LEGO® MINDSTORS® NXT, and Arduino Mega 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 standalone hardware
- Integrating algorithms with robots and real-world systems
