RoboCar 1/10 MATLAB connection 2017

Overview · Features

With the MATLAB / Simulink program, you can design a route from the current position of RoboCar 1/10 to any position and orientation.
For example, in the case of research and development of autonomous driving such as automatic parking, lane change, obstacle avoidance, etc., a route that is optimal (smooth steering operation and little lateral G) according to the position and orientation of the target is calculated and the two-wheel vehicle model is used estimate the steering angle with MATLAB / Simulink.​ ​
Simulation on MATLAB / Simulink can be performed based on this steering angle, comparison between the planned route and simulation result.
Route control based on that difference becomes possible because the same MATLAB / Simulink program allows operation of real machine of RoboCar 1/10,
Simulation and experiments using sensor data in real environments can be performed efficiently.

* MATLAB connection option does not correspond to RealTime Workshop.

■ Features
· Calculate the optimum route from the current position to any position and direction (smooth steering operation and few sideways)
· Operation of Robocar 1/10 and various data can be acquired by MATLAB / Simulink block
· Real-time simulation and control with MATLAB / Simulink only (no RealTimeWorkshop required)
· Provide RoboCar 1/10 vehicle model for simulation
· Provide a sample program that can be used for experiments immediately


Route design
