The Simulink Curling Simulator… we did it! 1

Posted by Guy Rouleau,

The Simulink Curling Simulator… we did it! After I published my post on simulating figure skating in Simulink, my colleague Corey Lagunowich and I discussed what other Olympic sports would be fun to model in Simulink. We settled on one of his favorites: curling. We got completely hooked on this challenge and before we knew it, we... read more >>

Hyperloop: Not so fast! 28

Posted by Guy Rouleau,

Hyperloop: Not so fast! This week Matt Brauer is back to describe work he did to analyze the trajectory of the Hyperloop proposal. This is a key input to the Hyperloop Simulink models we are building. Matt's conclusion is surprising: From the perspective of geographic constraints and rider comfort, the 760 mph peak speed is... read more >>

Hyperloop Model Architecture: We want your feedback! 5

Posted by Guy Rouleau,

Hyperloop Model Architecture: We want your feedback! We had some fun in our last post about the Hyperloop open source transportation system, but we didn't get much into the specifics. This week we begin to move things forward. Before beginning to analyze the feasibility of individual components, we decided to think about how we would architect a Simulink... read more >>

Don’t Engineer The Hyperloop in a Vacuum 1

Posted by Guy Rouleau,

Don’t Engineer The Hyperloop in a Vacuum Since it was released in August, the Hyperloop proposal by Elon Musk generated a lot of interest. Reactions were both positive and negative. As you can imagine, it also triggered a lot of discussions at Mathworks. This week, we present you the synopsis of a discussion Seth, Matt and I recently... read more >>

A Tweeting S-Function for the Raspberry Pi 7

Posted by Guy Rouleau,

A Tweeting S-Function for the Raspberry Pi I recently bought a Raspberry Pi. After trying a few of the demos included with the Simulink support package for Raspberry Pi, I began thinking about what I could do next. Just for fun, I thought... could I get a Simulink model deployed on the Raspberry Pi to send Tweets? Sending Tweets... read more >>

MATLAB Tech Talks: Bode Plot 1

Posted by Guy Rouleau,

MATLAB Tech Talks: Bode Plot This week we are introducing MATLAB Tech Talks - short videos explaining important engineering concepts in an informal and entertaining way. Carlos Osorio, our application engineer, and controls guru explains what Bode plots are, why you would use them, how to create them, and how to use them for control system... read more >>

What Is Simulation? 4

Posted by Guy Rouleau,

What Is Simulation?  This week we are taking a break from Simulink features and capabilities to take a step back and look at the history of simulations. What Is Simulation? Sometimes it is good to take a step back and remember why we do simulations in the first place. What is simulation? What kind... read more >>
