MATLAB Seminar Invite

The MathWorks would like to invite you to attend a pair of free technical seminars on MATLAB being held at University of Washington in the Student Union Building (HUB) room #334 on Tuesday, October 15th, 2013.

Please register if you think you would like to attend either of the sessions so we can plan accordingly for seating and hand-outs. A registration link is provided below.

There is no charge, and any interested faculty, staff, researcher, or student is welcome to attend. Feel free to pass this invite along to anyone you feel would be interested.

The presenter will be David Meissner, MathWorks Application Engineer.

Session 1:

Designing and Modeling a Multi-Domain Physical System in MATLAB

When: 10:00 AM – Noon, October 15th, 2013

Where: Student Union Building (HUB) room #334.

Register: https://www.mathworks.com/company/events/seminars/seminar81187.html

9:45 AM – 10:00 AM Registration and Sign-in (Walk-ins welcome)

10:00 AM – Noon Designing and Modeling a Multi-Domain Physical System in MATLAB

The purpose of these sessions is to demonstrate how MATLAB and Simulink can be used to design and model an electrically driven mechanical system. The concepts you will learn in this session can be applied to image processing, computer vision, robotics, control design and embedded systems applications. We will develop an object tracking algorithm in MATLAB (in the morning session) and then (in the afternoon session) use Simulink to design and model the mechanical and electrical components of the motor. We will also show how to design and automatically tune the controller to optimize system performance.

AM Session: Developing an Algorithm in MATLAB, Case study in Data/image acquisition and analysis

Highlights include:

· Accessing data (from files or hardware)

· Analyzing and visualizing data in MATLAB

· Publishing and deploying the results

We will end the session with time for open Q&A

This session assumes attendees have little or no prior experience with MATLAB; however experienced users will see some useful features demonstrated.

Session 2:

Modeling and Controlling a Physical System in Simulink and Simscape

When: 1:30 PM to 3:30 PM, October 15th, 2013

Where: Student Union Building (HUB) room #334.

Register: https://www.mathworks.com/company/events/seminars/seminar81187.html

1:15 PM – 1:30 PM Registration and Sign-in (Walk-ins welcome)

1:30 PM – 3:30 PM Modeling and Controlling a Physical System in Simulink and Simscape

The purpose of these sessions is to demonstrate how MATLAB and Simulink can be used to design and model an electrically driven mechanical system. The concepts you will learn in this session can be applied to image processing, computer vision, robotics, control design and embedded systems applications. We will develop an object tracking algorithm in MATLAB (in the morning session) and then (in the afternoon session) use Simulink to design and model the mechanical and electrical components of the motor. We will also show how to design and automatically tune the controller to optimize system performance.

PM Session: Case study in modeling an object tracking mechanism

Highlights include:

· Realizing the MATLAB algorithm for real-world use

· Designing a controller and simulating a dynamic system

· Performing feedback control design and optimization

· Automatically generating code for prototyping

· CAD import into SimMechanics

We will end the session with time for open Q&A

This session assumes attendees have little or no prior experience with Simscape or Simulink; however experienced users will see some useful features demonstrated. It will be helpful to have attended the AM session, but it is not necessary.

Although there are no exercises or hands-on activities planned, we will be distributing the presenter’s code examples and slides via email to anyone that attends either session.

Attendees are welcome to ask questions throughout the session, and should feel free to arrive late or leave early if your schedule requires you to do so.
