Learn to use Simulink® external mode with VEX Cortex Microcontroller to acquire and log sensor data over a serial USB connection. A limit switch sensor connected to the VEX Cortex Microcontroller is used to demonstrate how this feature works. The video, a continuation of Tuning Parameters Using External Mode, also explains how teams can use this feature as an effective serial debugging tool.
Introduction to Stateflow for Student Competition Teams Learn basic Stateflow terminology and functionality, as well as the workflow to design and simulate a simple state diagram.
Simulink Quick Start for Student Competition Teams Learn how to create a model of an algebraic equation in Simulink.
