We present a MATLAB toolbox that interfaces directly with the Intelitek Scorbot – one of the most widely used educational articulated robots. The toolbox provides a userfriendly, open source method of accessing the robot’s functionality from within MATLAB’s powerful integrated development environment, which already includes numerical solvers, image(More)
This paper describes the use of a platinum resistance temperature detector to develop a calibration experiment and to introduce metrology principles. The Callender-Van Dusen equation is used to analyze the temperature-resistance characteristic of a detector. Linearity of this characteristic is explored using a MATLAB simulation. Resistance is measured at(More)
Active control of noise has been an emerging technology for the past two decades. Active noise control (ANC) is an attractive means to achieve large amounts of noise reduction in a small package, particularly at low frequencies, where passive noise control may be impractical. While the concept of ANC has long been established, the technological means for(More)
In this paper we discuss a locally-generated daughter-board extension to the popular SHARC DSP evaluation module (EVM). The board improves the performance of this inexpensive hardware in many applications that involve feedback control. We discuss the use of this hardware in a simple servo-motor control experiment that demonstrates many of the fundamentals(More)
