From the series: Getting Started with VEX Robotics Using MATLAB and Simulink
Gary Garber, BU Academy, Boston, MA
Learn to design a model in Simulink® and Stateflow® to perform dead reckoning on a VEX robot. Dead reckoning, or deduced reckoning, is the process of computing the amount of time to cover a desired distance for a robot based upon previously estimated speeds. The VEX robot in this example navigates in the shape of a square using the dead reckoning technique. Note that due to various design constraints and external factors, the robot doesn’t always follow the desired navigation path. For more accurate results, consider using wheel encoders, which will be explained more in the next video VEX Robotics with MATLAB and Simulink: Robot Motion Control with Integrated Encoder
