2D Simulink for Project-Based Learning using LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT

To address the growing need in curriculum and research for low-cost, easy to use hardware and software environments, Simulink now includes the capability to program low-cost hardware such as Arduino, Raspberry Pi, LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT, and other platforms.

The purpose of this workshop is to demonstrate how using Simulink to program low-cost hardware can enhance courses in signal processing, computer vision, communications, data acquisition, instrument control, embedded systems, and more, by easily going from theory to practice.

This workshop uses LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT as the target platform. Participants will develop and test robot control algorithms that access and use standard NXT sensors and actuators, and automatically generate code to program the robot. They will also gain hands-on experience with Simulink as a complete, industry standard environment for modeling, analysis, simulation, and embedded code generation.
