FabShops - Simulink+Arduino
This will be a hands-on introduction to programing Android micro-controllers using Simulink. The course will cover getting started with Simulink, installing the hardware support package for Arduino, controlling digital output and reading digital and analog inputs on an Arduino and controlling a servo motor.
Learning the MATLAB, Simulink, and low-cost hardware workflow will provide valuable experience and open new project possibilities. The workshop will be a good starting point for projects involving measurement and instrumentation, controls, image processing and computer vision, signal processing and communication systems, robotics and mechatronics.
Preparation and Resources: Students must bring a laptop computer with MATLAB and Simulink installed along with a compatible C compiler.
Students will be provided all necessary hardware, but, may optionally bring their own Arduino board.
