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.
Modeling a Fault-Tolerant Fuel Control System
Combine Stateflow® with Simulink® to efficiently model hybrid systems. This type of modeling is particularly useful for systems that have numerous possible operational modes based on
Control HC-SR04 Ultrasonic Sensor
Use the MATLAB® Support Package for Arduino® Hardware to control a HC-SR04 ultrasonic ranging module capable of measuring distances in the 2cm to 400cm range.
Automatically Detect and Recognize Text in Natural Images
Detect regions in an image that contain text. This is a common task performed on unstructured scenes. Unstructured scenes are images that contain undetermined or random scenarios. For
Compute Sample ACF and PACF
Compute the sample autocorrelation function (ACF) and partial autocorrelation function (PACF) to qualitatively assess autocorrelation.
Introduction to MIMO Systems
Multiple-Input-Multiple-Output (MIMO) systems, which use multiple antennas at the transmitter and receiver ends of a wireless communication system. MIMO systems are increasingly
Abaqus2Matlab is a Matlab toolbox which is used to retrieve the results of an Abaqus analysis in an easy to handle form. It is developed by George Papazafeiropoulos
The function NEXTNAME returns a file or folder name, incrementing a number at the end of the name to ensure that the returned name is not currently used.
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 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
Single Hydraulic Cylinder Simulation
Use Simulink® to model a hydraulic cylinder. You can apply these concepts to applications where you need to model hydraulic behavior. See two related examples that use the same basic
Modeling an Automatic Transmission Controller
Model an automotive drivetrain with Simulink®. Stateflow® enhances the Simulink model with its representation of the transmission control logic. Simulink provides a powerful
