Workshop #1

MATLAB® & Simulink® with Raspberry Pi®
A hands-on workshop on hardware support for project based learning

Seminar Overview

The workshop describes the built-in support for prototyping, testing, and running Simulink models on Raspberry Pi®. This platform aims to address the growing need for hands-on and project-based learning via a low-cost, easy to use hardware and software environment that builds on the widely used MATLAB & Simulink.

The Simulink built-in support for hardware enables students to access the hardware capabilities of the popular credit-card sized, ARM11 based Raspberry Pi® computer, from within Simulink environment, and deploy for embedded implementation. Faculty who attend will have a chance to work through lab modules with examples of video and image processing algorithms, from very simple video in/out handling to a more sophisticated processing such as object recognition and edge detection. They will have an opportunity to gain practical hands-on experience in building such high-level examples themselves, and by extension understand the potential for use in the classroom with undergraduate students.

Workshop Facilitator

Sebastian Gross studied electrical engineering and pursued his PhD in image processing at RWTH Aachen University. He is now a technical evangelist with MathWorks, GmbH, Ismaning. His main function is the support of teaching staff in tool application, curriculum design, and the general improvement of technical teaching at all levels of education.

Workshop #2

Learn to Design Real Systems Fast with National Instruments myRIO Workshop

Seminar Overview

Find out more about the new NI myRIO device, during this interactive seminar for educators and graduate students in the fields of controls, mechatronics, robotics, and embedded systems. Physically set up an NI myRIO, write an embedded program with NI LabVIEW software, and visualize the results.

The NI myRIO is an embedded hardware device designed specifically to help students design real, complex engineering systems more quickly and affordably than ever before. NI myRIO places dual-core ARM® Cortex™-A9 real-time processing and Xilinx FPGA customizable I/O into your hands. With its onboard devices, seamless software experience, and library of courseware and tutorials, NI myRIO provides an affordable tool that students can use to do real engineering in one semester.


National Instruments will provide the myRIO boards and PCs needed for the workshop. They will be able to serve up to 20 people.
