At ASU, new commercially available automatic code-generation tools are used to progress from controller design, to simulation, and finally to implementation on embedded hardware. Case studies highlighting a force-feedback joystick, a robotic hovercraft, and motor servo-control with encoder feedback are presented. Using these software tools, design iterations and multiple controllers are quickly simulated and downloaded to the actual hardware, providing students an appreciation for rapid embedded system design.
