BEST Robotics Simulink Summer Program Workshop
This program targets teachers, sponsors, and students who wish to learn more about robot programming and simulation using the MathWorks MATLAB/Simulink products.
The workshop will include 2 full days of hands-on, face-to-face instruction by specially trained instructors. The curriculum will cover using MATLAB and Simulink for programming, use of multiple robot sensors, and programming autonomous operations. Small Arduino-based robot platforms will be used during the workshop and will be provided by BEST Robotics. The robots will not be distributed to participants at conclusion but are available online at a reasonable price. The skills acquired during the workshop will be directly applicable to the programming skills required in the BEST Robotics competition. The exact same MATLAB/Simulink products are usable on a multitude of platforms including the VEX Cortex.
