This .zip file contains the examples introduced in the Webinar "Teaching Mechatronics with Low Cost Hardware".
The Webinar introduces different opportunities to integrate mechatronics experiments in your course using MATLAB and Simulink. We present how low cost hardware platforms such as Arduino®, BeagleBoard and LEGO® MINDSTORMS® NXT may be used in conjunction with MATLAB and Simulink to teach programming, algorithms, and mechatronics. By introducing different applications like controls, image and audio processing as well as mechatronics, multiple approaches that allow you to use Project-Based Learning to generate excitement and communicate complete design challenges to students without low-level hardware issues are explored.

I get an error message when trying to install this toolbox (using v 2019.a). What could be the reason? Any fixes?

very good! Thanks!

BeagleBoard performances are not the same you can obtain on a standard PC or using FPGA boards. FPS can't be much high and a delay is normal (especially in external mode). You can reduce fps, image size and resolution depending on your needs.


Had you also low FPS with external red object detecion on Beagleboard please?


thanks for the info and sorry for not noticing it.


Hi Davide,
Please check the link. Its not working.
Please let me know where i can get it.


Please provide the link for the webinar for better understanding.
