Connect to and Build Raspberry Pi/Arduino projects using high-level programming and block diagrams


Overview

Working with hardware has become a foundational skill for today’s engineering students, and if you haven’t had to program an Arduino, Raspberry Pi, or other board yet it’s probably just a matter of time before you will.  

These boards can be used to build all kinds of fun and engaging robots and gadgets, and provide students a hands-on way to apply concepts learned in class.    

Join this webinar and learn how to use MATLAB and Simulink to program different types of hardware projects. You will see how to model and simulate these systems, develop embedded algorithms, and with the click of a button, automatically generate code that runs on your hardware.

The concepts and workflows covered are useful well beyond the engineering classroom and are used by companies around the world to design today’s most complex vehicles, aircrafts, industrial robots, and other systems.

Please allow approximately 60 minutes to attend the presentation and Q&A session.
