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