You're Invited: MATLAB to C Made Easy

Join MathWorks for this exciting webinar:

Topic: MATLAB to C Made Easy
Date: Thursday, July 26th
Time: 1:00 pm EDT

Registration is required, and details can be found here.

In this webinar we demonstrate the workflow for generating readable and portable C code from your MATLAB algorithms using MATLAB Coder. Through product demonstrations, you will learn how you can use MATLAB Coder to:

  • Prototype your MATLAB algorithms as standalone executables on a PC 
  • Accelerate parts of your MATLAB algorithms by automatically generating MEX functions 
  • Integrate your algorithms as compiled C libraries with custom software 
  • Generate C source code to hand-off to software engineers 

Register today for this webinar.

Text Reading and Text Input Driving Simulator Study Participants Invited

Interested persons are invited to participate in a driving simulator study to support the design of text reading and text input devices in vehicles. The information gathered would help to answer research questions regarding the design of in-vehicle devices and interfaces, as well as making recommendations about their safe use.

The study will take place at the University of Washington Seattle Campus and take about 1.5 to 2 hours to complete. During the study, you will be videotaped while driving the simulator for research purpose.

Requirements: Participants must be native English speakers between 18 to 75 years old and have a valid U.S. Driver's license.

Compensation: $20/h

If interested, please register online:

Participants wanted for a ergonomic study

Researchers from the Department of Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences at the University of Washington are planning to do a study measuring how different computer input devices affect how people use computers.  We hope the results of this study will help us evaluate the ergonomic aptitude of current designs and potentially lead to the identification of additional design modifications to further promote effective ergonomics and health.

The duration of the study is:  2 to 4 hours

You will be asked to use:   A keyboards and pointing device (mouse) on different workstations

We will measure:  Wrist posture with goniometers, Muscle activity with electrogmyography, Preference questionnaires, and Comfort questionnaires

All of these measurements are non-invasive and minimal risk.  If you do decide to participate, you will be compensated $20/hr for your time. This money will be paid in cash.

Taking part in this study is voluntary. If you are interested in participating in the study or just want more information, please contact Jay Kim, project coordinator, at 206-543-4544 or via the email address listed below.
