A brief summary
Do you want to use Simulink® to simulate technical systems? Do you want to control real systems using an Arduino® microcontroller? Then this MOOC's for you. Enrol today! The main objective of this MOOC is to teach the use of Simulink® as a simulation tool for a broad variety of application domains. We will specifically focus on topics of interaction of the simulation models with the real world using Arduino Microcontrollers and Simulink®'s corresponding Arduino Hardware Support Package.First, we will explain modelling and simulation concepts in general and introduce Simulink®. As a first application, we show how a simplified model of a Water Treatment Plant is implemented using Simulink®. We will then use an Arduino microcontroller to access hardware in the real world. We will go on to introduce control engineering techniques using Simulink® and apply these techniques to drive an example system of a ball floating in an airstream.
