From the series: Project-Based Learning Using Controls Web-Based Tutorials
Richard Hill, University of Detroit Mercy
Professor Richard Hill explains how you can use the redesigned Control Tutorials for MATLAB and Simulink to invert the classroom and create a more active learning environment. The popular web-based tutorials now feature a modern design, enhanced content, and the latest control and analysis capabilities available in MATLAB® and Simulink®. Learn about the various ways in which the Control Tutorials have been used in control system courses to enhance how students learn essential control design techniques.
The webinar also shows how you can engage students in project-based learning using new capabilities in Simulink for easily interfacing with low-cost target hardware such as Arduino® and LEGO® MINDSTORMS® NXT.
About the Presenter: Dr. Richard Hill is an assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at University of Detroit Mercy. Since joining the faculty he has spent two visiting stints at Ford Motor Company, first working on diagnostics for hybrid electric vehicles and then developing a course on the modeling and control of advanced electric vehicles. His research interests lie in the areas of vehicle control, control and diagnosis of discrete-event systems, modular and hierarchical control, and engineering education. He received a Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
