Altair Embed (formerly named VisSim) is a block diagram-based application used to
model & simulate equations, automatically generate C-code from any block diagram model, and interactively execute the C-code model on microcontroller targets, including those from STMicroelectronics, Texas Instruments, Arduino, and Raspberry Pi. This course walks the users through use cases and examples. This course uses the Arduino Uno microcontroller and various sensors and actuators. All the hardware parts are included in the ELEGOO UNO Project Super Starter Kit available from Amazon for approximately $35.00 USD. This kit must be purchased separately for use in Chapter 2, 3, and 4.
ELEGOO UNO Project Super Starter Kit (Includes Arduino Uno Microcontroller and other sensors)
Goals and Objectives:
- Identify block diagrams and create them using the Embed editor, commonly used blocks, and methods of representing model equations as block diagram models.
- Utilize embedded software development within Embed. (This uses the Arduino Uno microcontroller and various sensors and actuators.)
- Create state charts and identify their use in model construction, automatic code generation, and target execution.
- Describe advanced features of the Embed application including: interrupts, ultrasonic sensing, do-loops and more.
