ProtoSpace and MathWorks gladly invite you the next MathWorks Technology Day on September 10th.

We offer you the opportunity to learn about MATLAB® and Simulink® and how to incorporate MathWorks solutions in your daily job tasks. Take the chance to meet MathWorks experts and get the opportunity to learn more about these two platforms. 


Through live examples and demonstrations you will learn about:

  • Data Acquisition & Processing
  • Industrial Artificial Intelligence (AI)
  • Robotics & Automation Technology

About ProtoSpace and MathWorks

The ProtoSpace is the corporate FabLab of Airbus, it is a place where the makers of Airbus gather to work on their ideas and validate (or not) their assumptions by designing, building, testing, learning and reiterating the prototypes. With the use of 3D printers, laser cutters, all kinds of electronics Airbus’ innovators hack and disrupt the airplane concept of today to imagine the concepts of aviation of tomorrow.
MathWorks is the leading developer of mathematical computing software for engineers and scientists.
MATLAB® is the easiest and most productive computing environment for engineers and scientists. With math, graphics, and programming, it’s designed for the way you think and the work you do.
Simulink® is a block diagram environment for simulation and Model-Based Design of multidomain and embedded engineering systems. Explore, test, and implement designs you wouldn’t otherwise consider – in a fraction of the time it would take you to write C, C++, or HDL code.

“The best and brightest engineers and scientists in the world use MATLAB and Simulink as tools of inspiration and innovation. The result: solutions that are transforming the way we live, work, and learn.” (MathWorks)
