Getting Started with VEX Robotics Using MATLAB and Simulink

Get started using MATLAB and Simulink with Simulink Support for VEX Cortex Microcontroller to program a VEX EDR robot. Gary Garber, from BU Academy, demonstrates how to use these tools to operate the robot both manually and autonomously to perform competition-related tasks.
