Hey everyone! I'm doing a project on accident prevention system in cars which makes use of neural network and cross correlation in matlab. Is there a way to avoid using a laptop? Can I use matlab wirelessly which is connected to my PC at home? Or is there an option of using a cheap laptop or tablet in the car?

An accident protection must be failsafe. Using a wireless connection is a source of errors. Using a standard Matlab running under an operating system is a source of problems also: What happens if the car needs a decision and the OS thinks it is time for some updates and defragmenting the disk?
Even if you want a test application only, it is necessary from a scientific point of view to consider the fundamental basics. Look for terms like "real-time OS" and "embedded system".

Not the way I read the question (I thought he wanted Nikhila just wanted to use MATLAB while in a car), but a good answer.

MATLAB itself cannot run on any tablet operating system yet introduced.
You could consider a MacBook Air, but watch out that you get enough memory to be useful.

It appears that Arch Linux with X11 can run on Wacom tablets https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Wacom_Tablet. I don't know if you can get MATLAB to install or not, but it seems like you might be able to.
