  • MATLAB Installation
    We have discovered issues with using ver 2021a on our robots and are still waiting for Mathworks to release 2021b to determine if it is viable or if we'll need to revert back to ver2020. You may delay doing your MATLAB install and use MATLAB online until further notice; the MATLAB toolbox check assignment has been turned off, and we rescheduled our robot project to after Quiz 3. If you decide to install one version temporarily until the required version is determined, please do a custom install - instructions here
