Matlab Simulink and Raspberry PI

Last week Mathworks held a Raspberry Pi workshop on site in the Merchant Venturers Building, they introduced us to using Simulink with Raspberry pi’s, I found the afternoon interesting and thought I would share the training material for others who couldn’t attend to have a go,  on the day we used Raspberry PI Camera module however, I have repeated the examples using a USB web camera (Logitech Quickcam Pro 9000 Web camera) and the examples worked just as well.
