MATLAB and Simulink for Robotics Research and Education


The goal of this workshop is to provide an overview of the fundamental role
that MATLAB and Simulink play in robotics research and education.

MATLAB and Simulink have long been used in robotics and form the basis of
coursework, tutorials, and laboratory experiments for many robotics
curricula around the world. Recently, robotics problems have grown
beyond the classical arm-manipulator kinematics into a broad spectrum of
applications involving low-cost hardware platforms such as Arduino and
Raspberry Pi all the way to complex autonomous vehicles. With new features
such as ROS connectivity in Robotics System Toolbox and Unreal integration
via Vehicle Dynamics Blockset, as well as a variety of hardware support
packages, MATLAB and Simulink provide a seamless environment for developing
advanced robotic systems both in desktop simulation and on physical robots.

Over the course of the workshop, accomplished researchers and professors in
various robotics disciplines will share their success stories and teaching
experience with the use of MathWorks tools. The audience will gain insights
and perspectives from a wide variety of applications along with technical
details. In addition, talks from MathWorks engineers will inform the
audience about the latest robotics-related capabilities of MATLAB and
Simulink, and outline practical examples.
