MathWorks

MathWorks is the leading developer of mathematical computing software. MATLAB, the language of technical computing, is a programming environment for algorithm development, data analysis, visualization, and numeric computation. Simulink is a graphical environment for simulation and Model-Based Design of multi-domain dynamic and embedded systems. Engineers and scientists worldwide rely on these product families to accelerate the pace of discovery, innovation, and development in automotive, aerospace, electronics, financial services, biotech-pharmaceutical, and other industries. MathWorks products are also fundamental teaching and research tools in the world’s universities and learning institutions.

Student competitions bridge classroom theory with hands-on learning of industry practices and technologies and are important vehicles for educating the engineers of tomorrow. RoboCup is an excellent example of project-based learning for which MATLAB and Simulink are already used extensively. MathWorks wants to show the student teams, the universities and the visitors the capabilities offered by its software and explore the possibility to apply them wider and more efficiently to the design of new robot technology. MathWorks also sees it as a social responsibility to contribute to society by stimulating our next generation to become interested in technology. The company mission is to accelerate the pace of science and technology.

You can benefit from the support!

• Complimentary Software Offer
MathWorks provides complimentary software for this competition. If your team is participating in this competition and you would like to work with MATLAB and Simulink just request the software.

• Robot Operating System (ROS) Support from MATLAB
Verify your MATLAB® algorithms directly in the Robot Operating System (ROS) network. With ROS support from MATLAB, you can interact with robots and simulators that provide a ROS interface. You can also create a self-contained ROS network directly in MATLAB. These features allow you to develop your robotic algorithms in MATLAB, while giving you the ability to exchange messages with other nodes on the ROS network.
