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.

MATLAB & Simulink with Raspberry Pi – A hands- on workshop on hardware support

The workshop aims to address the growing need in curriculum and research for low-cost, easy to use hardware and software environments. Based upon on the widely used MATLAB & Simulink, the session describes the built-in support for prototyping, testing, and running Simulink models on Raspberry Pi.

Simulink includes the capability to program low-cost hardware such as Arduino, Raspberry Pi, LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT, and other platforms. This hands-on workshop is designed to be an introduction to Simulink’s hardware support capabilities. This session will allow participants to develop, simulate, and test custom algorithms and implement the code on an embedded system from within the Simulink environment.

Lab modules will include examples of video and image processing algorithms, from very simple video in/out handling to a more sophisticated processing such as object recognition and edge detection. The workshop will provide practical hands-on experience and by extension offer attendees an understanding of the potential for use in the classroom, research, and student projects.
