Autonomous Humanoid Robot with Model Based Design

Autonomous Humanoid Robot with Model Based Design

Our life is full of smart systems like mobile phone, laptops etc. These systems are embedded with software. Programmers have to write thousands of thousand line codes to implement a complex algorithm on system. This consumes lots of time and effort to develop correct software. To address this problem MathWorks came with ‘model based design’. […]
