Introduction to Simulink for Project-Based Learning using LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT

10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

The purpose of this seminar is to demonstrate how using Simulink to program low-cost hardware such as Arduino, Raspberry Pi and LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT 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 session uses the interactive, block diagram based Simulink environment, to design, simulate, optimize and deploy an embedded algorithm from Simulink. Our example involves developing a streetview robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT.

Highlights include:

  • Designing and simulating control algorithm in Simulink
  • Designing advanced event-driven logic using Stateflow
  • Embedding control logic in low-cost hardware like Arduino, LEGO MINDSTORMS
  • NXT and Raspberry Pi without writing any code
  • Monitoring sensor signals and tuning system parameters in real time
  • Analyzing collected sensor data in MATLAB

    ** No prior experience with MATLAB or Simulink is necessary.

    ** This session is intended for faculty and students.
