The Mathworks 2009-2010

Exploring Hardward and Software for Use in Mechatronics and Robotics Education

The MathWorks SCOPE team worked to identify and develop an affordable solution that would allow students and professors to interface lab hardware with MATLAB and Simulink. The team researched current hardware and software platforms used in academia. Based on this information and user studies, the team built a prototype solution applicable to courses in introductory engineering, mechatronics, and controls. The final result was a device design that enabled students to easily access the power of The MathWorks software while learning key concepts of physics, robotics, modeling, and control.
