Jose Avendano, MathWorks
Jose Avendano demonstrates programming advantages implemented by students when programming robots for the 2017 season of the BEST Robotics competition using Simulink®. Some of the highlighted workflows include desktop simulations that help verify algorithm behavior before programming hardware. You’ll also see dynamic robot controls that change between different sets of motor speeds and driver preferences and learn how to implement simple task schedulers that can help automate robot tasks such as picking up objects or repeating specific motions.
