Why do you love the Pi? I love it because the Raspberry Pi has made it easy for young makers to play with hardware! I wish this were the case when I was in school.. I remember falling in love with MATLAB for similar reasons in grad school. With MATLAB, I could focus on the engineering problem rather than getting lost in pointers and syntax errors. Simulink takes it one step further with the graphical modeling environment and makes it easy to design your system. More importantly in the context of the Pi, with Simulink you don't have to know a programming language to start playing with hardware. You can download a Simulink model on the Pi with the click of a button.
In this post I want to share how you can program a Raspberry Pi using Simulink. Here's a video that walks you through the various steps of installing and using the Simulink support package for Raspberry Pi:
Once you get started with Simulink, you can implement simple algorithms such as color inversion or implement a complex object detection algorithm such as the one used in programming the Rasduino. Stay tuned for more examples of using Simulink with the Raspberry Pi.
