MATLAB & Simulink Seminar


Feb. 6, 2013,
9:30am to 11:30am

Office/Remote Location

Room 132


Please join Office of Information Technology for a complimentary MATLAB & Simulink seminar hosted by MathWorks.

Craig Borghesani, an application engineer with MathWorks, will be on campus to present the powers of MATLAB with Simulink. His event "How a Differential Equation Becomes a Robot" will showcase how the suite of MathWorks tools complement and enhance each other, and how when combining them together, can unleash the full potential of a complete development environment.

Highlights of the presentation include:

  • Using the MuPad interface in the Symbolic Math Toolbox to create equations of motion
  • Modeling complex electro-mechanical systems using Simulink and the physical modeling libraries
  • Using MATLAB scripts to control and automate the simulation of dynamic models in Simulink
  • Importing three-dimensional mechanisms directly from CAD packages using the SimMechanics translator
  • Using the Control System Toolbox and the Optimization Toolbox directly on your Simulink model
  • Creating virtual reality visualizations and interfacing with external devices using Simulink 3D Animation Prototyping and testing your real-time system directly in hardware with xPC Target
