LEGO® MINDSTORMS® NXT with MATLAB and Simulink for Teaching Controls, Robotics and Mechatronics

SEFI 2013

September 17th 2013, 10:00 – 13:00 Leuven, Belgium

Workshop/Tutorial Abstract:
This workshop describes the built-in support for prototyping, testing, and running Simulink models on LEGO® MINDSTORMS® NXT. 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 32-bit LEGO NXT brick from within Simulink environment, and to automatically generate and cross-compile the necessary code for real time autonomous implementation.  Faculty who attend will have a chance to work through lab modules with examples of embedded genetic algorithms, motor speed control and mobile inverted pendulum. 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.
