“Sometimes a technology is so awe-inspiring that the imagination runs away with it – often far, far away from reality. Robots are like that. A lot of big and ultimately unfulfilled promises were made in robotics early on, based on preliminary successes.”
The Matlab-Robotics is high level approach software that supports research into arm -type robotics. The Matlab provides functions for manipulating and converting between data types which are necessary to represent robot position and orientation
Robotics with Matlab provides algorithms and hardware connectivity for developing autonomous mobile robotics applications. Matlab include map representation, path planning, and path following for differential drive robots. You can design and prototype motor control, computer vision, and state machine applications in MATLAB and integrate them with core algorithms in Robotics.
Its provides an interface between MATLAB and the Robot Operating System (ROS) that enables you to test and verify applications on ROS-enabled robots. It supports C, C++ code generation, enabling you to generate the code for robot
Robotics design project may require you to prototype a robot that has wheels, arms, and sensors. It may need to navigate in a building, pick and place objects, or perform other maneuvers. You may know the basics of kinematics, dynamics, servo, stepper motors, or CAD tools. MATLAB can help convert your ideas and concepts into a functional robot design.
