This four-part video series takes you through a complete process of prototyping, exploring, and deploying a color detection algorithm onto an Avnet® Ultra96 board using Xilinx® Model Composer. In this project, an algorithm processes a video input file and detects street signs based on color.
Part 1: Set Up the Project Learn where to find the hardware and software products needed for the project. Download MATLAB and Simulink from MathWorks, plus Model Composer and Vivado Design Suite from Xilinx.
Part 2: Simulate Using Model Composer Become familiar with the project workflow and simulate a color detection algorithm. Change system conditions and view simulation results. Create a final IP block and testbench.
Part 3: Import IP and Validate the Design Using Vivado Import a color detection IP block and testbench into Vivado and perform design validation. Then create a standalone design, validate the design and run behavioral simulation.
