Implementing a PID Controller on an Arduino Board 11

Posted by Guy Rouleau,

Implementing a PID Controller on an Arduino Board This week my colleague Pravallika is back to continue her motor control story! In my previous post, we saw how to estimate continuous transfer functions with System Identification Toolbox. We estimated the following transfer function for a simple DC Motor using tfest: For this transfer function, we designed the following controller using... read more >>

SimMechanics Second Generation 10

Posted by Guy Rouleau,

SimMechanics Second Generation SimMechanics users, the first time you opened the Simulink Library Browser in R2012a, you probably noticed a big change: SimMechanics Second Generation SimMechanics Second Generation is a complete redesign of SimMechanics. Let's see what this means. A new way of thinking: Frame Centered In the First Generation, all rigid body coordinate systems are... read more >>

Model-Based Design Dilemma 15

Posted by Guy Rouleau,

Model-Based Design Dilemma I am currently working on a model and I have a dilemma. There are two ways I could model my system. I need you to tell me which approach is best and why. I need your help! The Goal I am building a model to drive a small robot made of Lego blocks.... read more >>

Generating Code for Real-Time Multicore Systems 2

Posted by Guy Rouleau,

Generating Code for Real-Time Multicore Systems Do you generate code to be executed on a multi-core processor? Wouldn't it be cool if you could decide which part of the model will execute on which core? Modeling Concurrent Execution This week, my friends Teresa and Tunc, will be introducing a new feature in R2011b designed especially for... read more >>
