Quick-fix: MATLAB FMU import error

MATLAB 2017b introduced support for the Functional Mock-up Standard by providing FMU-import blocks in Simulink. This open standard enables mixing of simulation models created with different tools, like prototype controllers before coding them. This is an extremely powerful feature that I will write more about in soon. This memo, however, is about an error that occurred to me […]

Implementing a MATLAB digital filter or controllers in C++

Controllers and filters are often a good way to stabilise a system, condition a signal or make a system follow a reference. The usual approach is to model the system or signal in an application like MATLAB and then design a filter or controller. Either by applying design rules, some sort of optimisation algorithm or tuning parameters experimentally. […]

Random Midpoint Displacement Fractal (RMDF)

The Random Midpoint Displacement Fractal (RMDF) is a fractal this is often used for generating height-maps, landscapes, rough surfaces and more. Its implementation is simple but the results are interesting, especially when a nice color-map is applied to the matrix and it is shown as a 3D-surface.

Matlab2Tikz: Perfect MATLAB Figures in LaTeX

Papers and reports can’t do without both but integrating MATLAB figures in LaTeX is not so obvious. Different methods for exporting and including graphics exist but have various downsides like inconsistent scaling, wrong fonts and strange spacing. The best method I have come across so far is using matlab2tikz. It is a MATLAB script that is able […]
