Modeling the United States Economy
Economists and policymakers are concerned with understanding the dynamics of economies, especially during periods of significant macroeconomic shocks. Although numerous approaches are possible, we will develop a small macroeconomic model in the style of Smets and Wouters.
Perform basic peak analysis. It will help you answer questions such as: How do I find peaks in my signal? How do I measure distance between peaks? How do I measure the amplitude of peaks of a signal which is affected by a trend? How do I find peaks in a noisy signal? How do I find local minima?
Face Detection and Tracking Using Live Video Acquisition
Automatically detect and track a face in a live video stream, using the KLT algorithm.
Feature Based Panoramic Image Stitching
Automatically create a panorama using feature based image registration techniques.
Face Detection and Tracking Using the KLT Algorithm
Automatically detect and track a face using feature points. The approach in this example keeps track of the face even when the person tilts his or her head, or moves toward or away from the
Compute Sample ACF and PACF
Compute the sample autocorrelation function (ACF) and partial autocorrelation function (PACF) to qualitatively assess autocorrelation.
Unstable and neutral stratifications
The present example illustrates the calculation of the Obukhov length using the eddy-covariance method. The input is made of time series of the along-wind and vertical wind velocity
Neutral and unstable spectra
The wind spectra for a neutral and unstable atmospheric stratification are computed following the model proposed by Højstrup . The model of Højstrup aims to describe the wind spectra in
Radar Tracking Using MATLAB Function Block
Use an extended Kalman filter with the MATLAB® Function block in Simulink® to estimate an aircraft's position from radar measurements. The filter implementation is found in the MATLAB
Modeling a Fault-Tolerant Fuel Control System
Combine Stateflow® with Simulink® to efficiently model hybrid systems. This type of modeling is particularly useful for systems that have numerous possible operational modes based on
Single Hydraulic Cylinder Simulation
Use Simulink® to model a hydraulic cylinder. You can apply these concepts to applications where you need to model hydraulic behavior. See two related examples that use the same basic
Air Traffic Control Radar Design
Model a conceptual air traffic control (ATC) radar simulation based on the radar range equation.
Anti-Windup Control Using a PID Controller
Use anti-windup schemes to prevent integration wind-up in PID controllers when the actuators are saturated. We use the PID Controller block in Simulink® which features two built-in
