Raspberry Pi® with MATLAB and Simulink for Teaching Video and Image Processing
September 19th 2013, 10:00 – 13:00 Leuven, Belgium
This workshop describes the built-in support for prototyping, testing, and running Simulink models on Raspberry Pi®. This platform aims to address the growing need for hands-on and project-based learning via a low-cost, easy to use hardware and software platform that builds on the widely used MATLAB & Simulink platform.
The Simulink built-in support for hardware enables students to access the hardware capabilities of the popular credit-card sized, ARM11 based Raspberry Pi® computer, from within Simulink environment, and deploy for embedded implementation. Faculty who attend will have a chance to work through lab modules with examples of video and image processing algorithms, from very simple video in/out handling to a more sophisticated processing such as object recognition and edge detection. They will have an opportunity to gain practical hands-on experience in building such high-level examples themselves, and by extension understand the potential for use in the classroom with undergraduate students.

Expected Number of Attendees: 20 maximum
Introduction to Simulink and HW Support for Project Based Learning – 15 min
Example lab module 1 – 60 min
Example 1: Explore a pre-built Simulink example (barcode scanning), download and execute on Raspberry Pi®
Example 2: Build and configure a simple video-loop example from scratch following the user’s guide
Example 3: Use the video input acquired by a webcam to develop an object detection example with standard library functions/blocks from the user’s guide
Key Concepts: System configuration and data types
Example lab module 2 – 90 min
Key Concepts: algorithm optimization, system verification, creating test benches
Expected Background of Participants:
Basic knowledge of signal processing algorithms. Knowledge of MATLAB/Simulink.
Educators attending the workshop will be paired up to students so to have the opportunity to observe the “Teacher-Learner” interaction
