From the series: Student Competition: Mobile Robotics Training
Connell D'Souza, MathWorks
Learn how to control a robot to move on its wheels autonomously using a simple dead reckoning algorithm.
You will start with an introduction to encoder sensors and then learn how to use the distance calculation using encoders to implement the dead reckoning algorithm in Simulink®.
In this video, you will also be introduced to the Mobile Robotics Training library to include simulation behavior and test your algorithm.
Mobile Robotics Training toolbox will be used for the simulation purposes.
A VEX EDR robot is used to demonstrate the performance of the dead reckoning algorithms on the microcontroller.
