I would like to develop algorithms to run on LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT using Simulink and I would like to know if it is supported in previous releases.
LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT is supported in various MATLAB releases, including Student Version. It is recommended to upgrade to the latest release if at all possible, as that will generally be the most capable offering from MathWorks. The support packages currently available are as follows:
Support from Simulink
Support from MATLAB
Support from Embedded Coder
