Perform basic peak analysis. It will help you answer questions such as: How do I find peaks in my signal? How do I measure distance between peaks? How do I measure the amplitude of peaks of a signal which is affected by a trend? How do I find peaks in a noisy signal? How do I find local minima?
Modeling the United States Economy
Economists and policymakers are concerned with understanding the dynamics of economies, especially during periods of significant macroeconomic shocks. Although numerous approaches are possible, we will develop a small macroeconomic model in the style of Smets and Wouters.
QPSK and OFDM with MATLAB System Objects
Simulate a basic communication system in which the signal is first QPSK modulated and then subjected to Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing. The signal is then passed through an
Face Detection and Tracking Using Live Video Acquisition
Automatically detect and track a face in a live video stream, using the KLT algorithm.
Use Simulink® to model a toy quadcopter, based on the Parrot (R) series of mini-drones, to help estimate the snow levels on the MathWorks Apple Hill campus roof.
Face Detection and Tracking Using the KLT Algorithm
Automatically detect and track a face using feature points. The approach in this example keeps track of the face even when the person tilts his or her head, or moves toward or away from the
Radar Tracking Using MATLAB Function Block
Use an extended Kalman filter with the MATLAB® Function block in Simulink® to estimate an aircraft's position from radar measurements. The filter implementation is found in the MATLAB
Simulating Automatic Climate Control Systems
Simulate the working of an automatic climate control system in a car using Simulink® and Stateflow®. You can enter a temperature value you would like the air in the car to reach by double
Designing a High Angle of Attack Pitch Mode Control
Use the Control System Toolbox™ and Simulink® Control Design™ to interact with Simulink to design a digital pitch control for the aircraft. In this example, we will design the controller to
Designing a Guidance System in MATLAB and Simulink
Use the model of the missile airframe presented in a number of published papers (References ,  and ) on the use of advanced control methods applied to missile autopilot design. The
Simulation of a Bouncing Ball
Use two different approaches to modeling a bouncing ball using Simulink®.
