MathWorks FollowThePath Online Challenge

MathWorks, the makers of MATLAB and Simulink, aims to engage students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) learning at a younger age can help prepare them for success at the university level and beyond. 

Join us Wednesday, January 11th at 6:30pm Central Time for a Webinar presented by MathWorks!  Register Here

The MathWorks FollowThePath Online Challenge will introduce participants to Model-Based Design using Simulink. The participants will design a line follower algorithm for a drone.  

This challenge provides an opportunity to simulate and learn path planning, image processing, and control systems for a drone line follower. The challenge is open to all student teams participating in REC Foundation’s Aerial Drone Competition or VEX VRC Robotics Competition and presents an opportunity for the top 3 teams to compete at VEX Worlds or an Aerial Drone Championship.

MathWorks will provide each participating team with complimentary software to work on the problem statement.
