MATRIX Creator is a fully-featured development board, including sensors, wireless communications, and an FPGA. MATRIX Creator was built with a mission to give every student, researcher, maker, tinkerer, and developer around the world a complete, affordable, and user-friendly tool for simple to complex Internet of Things (IoT) app creation.
“MATRIX Creators enable both undergrad and graduate students from various technical backgrounds to quickly prototype complex systems.”
- Dr. Christopher Le Dantec, Professor in the School of Media, Literature and Communication
Build your own robot with MATRIX Creator.
Students create prototype of drone control utilizing the FPGA, Microcontroller, and other sensors on MATRIX Creator.
We are going to ask Google Assistant some questions to show how you can communicate with her using your MATRIX Creator and a Raspberry Pi
