# Guy and Seth on Simulink

## Congratulations to the Winners of the 2012 Simulink Student Challenge!

The 2012 Simulink Student Challenge is complete and we have our winners!

Thanks to everyone who participated. All of the entries were amazing.

3rd place

Artemiy Smekhov for his model of horizontal movement of four-wheeled vehicle. This video really showcases how to build a Simulink model and how easy it can be to control from a simple front end simulation GUI.

2nd place

Egoitz Martinez for his modeling, simulation and 3D animation of a quadrotor helicopter. This is a great example of a Model-Based Design process and shows great Simulink use. The block diagrams were well-organized and they used images on masks to illustrate what each subsystem was doing. I really liked the polished Simulink 3D Animation of the quadcopter!

1st place

Matej Kubicka for his extension to ECRobot toolbox that allows wireless communication between 2+ NXT robots. He created his own Simulink library for Xbee communication for the NXT robot brick. He used several techniques in Simulink and Simulink Coder including Simulink S-functions, custom TLC code and even implemented the modeled behavior for simulation as a proof of concept. What a cool project!

Thanks to everyone who entered! Stay-tuned for more Student Challenges in 2013!

It’s the Kazan Federal University (where Kazan is a city in Russia – the capitol of Tatarstan republic). :)
Anyway I’m really glad to see one of the compatriots here. Though I would like to say that pretty much a lot of the videos (not within the first three ones) are really boring with slides containing lots of letters. It may me a good idea to release some guidelines for the next challenge on how to present better.

Wrap code fragments inside <pre> tags, like this:

<pre class="code">
a = magic(3);
sum(a)
</pre>


If you have a "<" character in your code, either follow it with a space or replace it with "&lt;" (including the semicolon).
