Accelerating the pace of engineering and science

Raspberry Pi Programming using Simulink

Brian McKay, MathWorks

Project-based learning is an effective way to engage students in learning engineering concepts related to control systems, robotics, audio  processing, computer vision applications, and more.

This webinar will show how you can easily and quickly program a Raspberry Pi using Simulink.  We will start by showing how you can download and set-up the free Simulink Support Package for Raspberry Pi Hardware.  Then we will demonstrate how to use the new Raspberry Pi Simulink blocks to access a webcam and run a color detection algorithm natively on the Raspberry Pi.

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