This webinar discusses MathWorks’ ROS and ROS 2.0 support that provides a live interface connecting MATLAB and Simulink with a ROS network. Benefits of using this support include:

  • Connecting to ROS and ROS 2.0 from any Operating System (OS) supported by MATLAB and Simulink
  • Leveraging built-in functionality in MathWorks toolboxes related to the algorithms in the following domains: control systems, computer vision, machine learning, signal processing, and state machine design
  • Automatically generating C++ code from algorithms designed in MATLAB and Simulink which can be deployed as standalone ROS nodes.


Through several examples, we will cover:

  • Data analysis for ROS in MATLAB and Simulink
  • Algorithm prototyping and development using ROS and ROS 2 network connection to external simulator and hardware
  • ROS node generation and deployment

Please allow approximately 45 minutes to attend the presentation and Q&A session. We will be recording this webinar, so if you can't make it for the live broadcast, register and we will send you a link to watch it on-demand.
