One Hour - Deep Dive Workshop on Simulating Autonomous Vehicles Using MATLAB and Simulink - April 8th

Category: Partners, Workshops

The next Deep Dive Workshop from our partner MathWorks focusing on simulating autonomous vehicles using MATLAB and Simulink is coming soon! It's scheduled for April 8th starting at 18:00 CEST!

With advancements in the automotive industry, various student competitions have introduced the driverless category, where the goal of the teams is to design and build an autonomous vehicle that can compete in different disciplines. In this technical session, you will learn how MATLAB and Simulink can be used to design automated driving system functionality including sensing, path planning, sensor fusion, and control systems. The MathWorks engineers will demonstrate an approach to drive an autonomous vehicle in a closed-loop circuit. They will conclude the session with a demo where the task is to drive the vehicle on a track avoiding collision with the cones.
