Session 2: "Developing Next-Generation Wireless Communications Systems Using MATLAB and Simulink"


Advanced modelling and simulation tools from MathWorks enable an accelerated work-flow from design to implementation of next-generation communication systems, allowing designers to also leverage software-defined radio prototyping hardware that helps in design optimization.
Through demonstrations, you will learn how to:

  • Model and simulate advanced wireless comm systems such as LTE and WLAN
  • Perform end-to-end simulations including RF and antenna models
  • Perform over-the-air testing using software-defined radio platforms

Session 4: "Software-Defined Radio Using MATLAB and Simulink"


RTL-SDR is a popular, low cost hardware that can receive wireless signals. With Communications System Toolbox Support Package for RTL-SDR Radio, you can use MATLAB and Simulink to design and prototype systems that process real time wireless signals acquired using an RTL-SDR receiver. In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn how to receive and decode real-world radio signals using Communications System Toolbox and RTL-SDR hardware.

Session 6: "Video Processing on Raspberry Pi Using Simulink"


The Raspberry Pi(r) single-board computer is a popular low-cost, compact and easy-to-use computing platform. This workshop provides a hands-on introduction to the built-in support for prototyping, testing, and running Simulink models on Raspberry Pi. During this workshop, participants will:

  • Learn about Target Support Packages for Simulink
  • Build image and video processing models in Simulink and execute them on a Raspberry Pi computer
