Buoy Detection Using Simulink

Sergio Biagioni, MathWorks

Perform Buoy Detection using Simulink for use in the AUVSI RoboBoat and RoboSub competitions.

This video includes demonstrations and explanations to show you how to:

  • Perform buoy detection algorithms in Simulink
  • Manually tune buoy detection algorithms with Simulink and a custom App
  • Automatically tune buoy detection algorithms using metrics
  • Compare algorithms using metrics
  • Deploy the algorithm to a low-cost target using the BeagleBoard as an example

Download the code used in this video along with a helpful guide to get started from File Exchange.
