IntroductionWhat is an indoor climate monitoring system and why do we need one?   Indoor climate monitoring systems provide a quick glance at key climate related statistics such as temperature and relative humidity. Being able to see these stats and receive alerts on your phone when the room is too humid or dry can be very helpful. Using the alerts, you can take quick necessary actions to attain maximum comfort in the room by switching on the heater or opening the windows.   In this ...
This was a great article to read - https://www.techrepublic.com/article/inside-the-raspberry-pi-the-story-of-the-35-computer-that-changed-the-world/   The highlight for Pi fan in me, was to hear it from the horse's mouth on why Raspberry Pi got that name and it is definitely an interesting story. ...
Do you have a Raspberry Pi project that is running at home while you are at work? Imagine being able to interactively adjust home temperature or take pictures of your garage from work?   If these possibilities excite you, try out the new Raspberry Pi in MATLAB Online! You can connect to your Raspberry Pi using MATLAB with just a browser!   Here are the links to get your started - Raspberry Pi Set Up MATLAB Online   Have fun! Madhu   PS - MATLAB online is a produc ...
Recently MathWorks had run Simulink Student challenge where in users were asked to submit their projects in which they had used Simulink to provide real-world solutions and they could win up to 1000 dollars. Even though this project did not place inside top 3 in this challenge, it was one of my favorites -     They are using a Raspberry pi as the brain for the control system and the camera board to get the actual position of the ball which can then be used in feedback control. This ...
MathWorks recently ran a mobile devices challenge where users were asked to submit a project in which they programmed their Android or iOS devices using MATLAB or Simulink. There were over 15 submissions that competed for the grand prize of 1000 USD.   The third place winning team built a low cost alternative to expensive GPS systems, click here to read more about this project and learn more about the other two winners. The link contains video references to their projects as well.   ...
Last year MathWorks announced the MATLAB and Simulink Hardware Challenge, in which a lot of you from our element14 community participated. I am here to introduce the MATLAB and Simulink Mobile Devices Challenge this year. Have you developed a cool Android or iOS app using MATLAB or Simulink? Have you created a MATLAB or Simulink project where you use an app from your mobile device to control an Arduino or Raspberry Pi? Have you analyzed sensor data from Android or iOS Mobile devices (phone o ...
Here is a link to the webinar - Cloud-based traffic analyzer using the Raspberry Pi and Simulink by MathWorks   This webinar will show you how Simulink was used to deploy a car counter algorithm to a Raspberry Pi. The Pi sends the traffic data to the cloud where it can be analyzed using ThingSpeak, an Internet of Things data collection platform. ThingSpeak is used to collect, analyze and act on data sent from devices such as Raspberry Pis and Arduinos.  The traffic can be analyzed on ...
Are you a student? Here is how you can win up to 1000 USD -   1) Show off your cool projects in which you used Simulink by creating a video which explains how you used Simulink. 2) Visit this page and use the appropriate hashtag while uploading your video to YouTube and complete the entry form on it.   And as always please share your projects with e14 community and earn the respect of your peers here as well.    For more details and the challenge rules please visit th ...
A theremin is an electronic musical instrument that can be played without physical contact. The Raspberry Pi utilizes basic image processing algorithms to generate various tones through its on board audio jack. Check out the video here -     For step by step instructions on how to create this, check out https://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/58428-creating-a-visual-theremin-using-raspberry-pi-and-simulink   Summary of Functionality: This project will: Mark th ...
MathWorks recently ran a hardware challenge, where in users were asked to submit a project in which they programmed hardware boards using MATLAB or Simulink. The grand prize for this challenge was 1000 USD and we received over 60 submissions for this challenge. Here is a link to the announcement page where you can read about the top 3 prize winners and also see their videos.   The announcement page also has a link to all the submissions for those who are interested in seeing the rest of t ...
At some point in time in our lives we have all created projects outside the scope of work and never got any credit for it. Here is your chance to show off your side projects and/or work projects where you programmed hardware boards like Arduino and Raspberry Pi using MATLAB and/or Simulink. You could win up to $1000 This challenge is open to everyone over the age of 18 and community gets to vote for their favorite project. Steps to enter the challenge – Create an original video and upload ...
Raspberry pi can speak using eSpeak library, so what is the big deal you ask? For those who are not familiar with eSpeak library, it is an open source speech synthesizer that is available for a lot of platforms. Simulink provides a visual programming language which uses the eSpeak library under the hood so that non-programming folks like me can still use the library effectively.   Here is a 90 second Facebook video that shows how to use the eSpeak block in Simulink and make your Raspberry ...
