This blog post is a tutorial on how you can control servo motors using an Arduino Mega 2560 board and Simulink. If you are not familiar with programming an Arduino with Simulink, I would recommend that you check out the video linked below first. I had pointed to this video in an earlier blog post which went through the steps I had taken to learn Arduino programming with Simulink.   Now that the basics are out of the way. Let us get to the servo motor control part of this tutorial. Thi ...
I have purchased an Arduino Mega 2560 R3 and want to connect a 3.5" TFT LCD to it. I am aware that I have to enter the source code but am stuck. There was no code sent with the screen. I bought it from:  Arduino Mega 2560 R3 R61581 3 5 inch TFT LCD Touhscreen Shield | eBay. I was directed to this site:   UTouch - Electronics - Henning Karlsen for the UTFT and UTOUCH codes. I have added them to my library but the UTFT names do not match my screen when I try to run a configuratio ...
I was browsing through YouTube today and found an interesting project video from Mohammad Alshawabkeh & Ahmad Alameer of the University of Jordan Department of Mechatronics Engineering.   They have created a robotic hand powered by an Arduino Mega and the Simulink Support Package for Arduino Hardware. The robotic contraption uses 5 servo motors and 5 flex sensors to identify the position of the fingers. Seems like a really great project. Check out the video below to see the robotic han ...
MathWorks organized a robotics competition as a part of the recently held Paris Maker Faire scheduled on June 21st and 22nd. The competition allowed participants to get their hands on a custom built mini Mars rover and play with Simulink and MATLAB to show off their robotics skills and received a raving response from a very large number of teams.                           ...
It's the Independence day weekend in the United States and a time for patriotism and fireworks . My colleague, Ye Cheng wanted to show her patriotism in her own "techie" way. Her idea: Light Paintings of the US flag. Light paintings use point sources of light to sketch shapes which are captured by a camera at a low shutter speed. Ye used 13 RGB LEDs for her paintings. The color of the LEDs are controlled by an Arduino Mega 2560, programmed using the Simulink Arduino Support Package and a Simul ...
