Designing and Modeling an Object Tracking System in MATLAB and Simulink
In this session, we will design an object tracking algorithm in MATLAB and then develop, model and implement the system using Simulink. In Simulink specifically, we will demonstrate how to design a controller and model the mechanical and electrical components of the motor. Our last step will be to implement the system on real-time hardware. The example involves rotating a laser to track an object.
Developing an Algorithm in MATLAB Case study: Data/image acquisition and analysis
• Accessing data (from files or hardware)
Modeling and Controlling a System in Simulink Case study: Object tracking mechanism
• Realizing the previous MATLAB algorithm for real world use
