Physical Modeling & Rapid Prototyping with MATLAB and Simulink

Sam Mirsky, MathWorks
Terry Denery, MathWorks

In this webinar, you’ll learn how MATLAB & Simulink are utilized in the development of an embedded control system including implementation and testing on hardware. Our demonstration will emphasize how to design, simulate and test a complex system that incorporates multiple domains such as mechanical, electrical and hydraulic – that are typically isolated across different software platforms and thus not simulated in a common framework.  

During our presentation, we’ll demonstrate how to:

  • Design and optimize the control system and simulate the control system and plant model together
  • Generate code for hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing and rapid prototyping, and demonstrate how you can test your models in real-time with actual hardware
  • Utilize verification & validation (V&V) techniques early in the development process to test against top-level requirements, all before building costly prototypes

About the Presenters: 
Terry Denery
is an expert in Modeling. He runs hundreds, if not thousands, of simulations to pursue the best design of electrical, mechanical, and control systems.
Sam Mirsky’s forte is working with the hardware; these two skill sets complement each other perfectly.  Using MathWorks tools Sam can rapidly prototype Terry’s best design, and prove whether it will really work or not. This could not be done without good modeling and rapid conversion of these models into real hardware systems.  Together, Terry and Sam will show how to do this in MATLAB & Simulink, the platform for Model-Based Design.
