Connect the block as shown in the following picture:

In the main model, double-click the “Line Drawing and Image Construction” block.

Change the configuration of the “Draw Lines” block as follows:

Now, it will draw the polygon based on the two longest lines.

Add the following blocks to the subsystem:

Block Library Quantity
Concatenate Simulink /Math Operations 2
Selector Simulink / Signal Routing 3
Gain Simulink / Math Operations 1
Relational Operator Simulink / Logic and Bit Operations 1
Logical Operator Simulink / Logic and Bit Operations 1
Submatrix Signal Processing Toolbox:“Math Functions / Matrices and Linear Algebra / Matrix Operations” or “Signal Management / Indexing” 1

Connect the blocks as follows:

The blocks should be configured as follows:

  • Selector5:
  • Selector4:
  • Selector3:
  • Vertices Matrix:
  • Draw Lane
  • Superposition of Lane and Original Image
  • Extraction

Rename the “Line Detection” to “Lane Detection”. Save the model as “LaneDetection.mdl” The model should look as follows:

Double Click the Lane Detection block. You may rename the blocks’ names. It will look as follows:

Run your model.

Running this gives you the images in Figure 7.

Edge Detection on a Video Stream

Real time implementation using tcp/ip


Open the “ RW_dm6437_tcpip.mdl ” Simulink model (generated in the " A Framework for Video Processing with the DM6437 DVDP " module).

Save the model as "lane_dm6437_tcpip.mdl".

Change the name of the “R_W Algorithm” block to “Lane Algorithm”.

The Real Time Implementation Model for Lane Detection

Right click on the "Build/Reload&Run" subsystem, choose “Block Properties”. Go to the Callbacks tab, and under OpenFcn* enter: “lane_tcpip_script('lane_pcl_tcpip');”, as shown in the following picture:

Double-click the “Task” block and make the same changes as shown:

Double-Click the “Lane Algorithm” subsystem.

Copy "Lane Detection and Tracking" block from "LaneDetection.mdl" into this model as shown.

Configure the "TCP/IP Receive" block :

Configure the "TCP/IP Send" block :

Configure the "Byte Unpack" block :

Configure the "Byte Pack" block :

Open the "RW_pcl_tcpip.mdl" model, created in the "Video R_W" directory.

Save the model as "lane_pcl_tcpip.mdl".

Double-click the “Video Source” block and make the same changes as shown:

Configure the "TCP/IP Receive" block :

Double-click the “Display” block, Double-click the “Data Unpack” block and Configure the "Byte Unpack" block as shown:

Open a new m-file, copy the following code and save it as "lane_tcpip_script.m" at the same directory as the model.

Running the real-time model

Build load and run the project from the "lane_dm6437l_tcpip.mdl" model. Double-click the "Build / Reload&Run" block.

Running the script, you will see:

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

Abhijith Reply
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
is Bucky paper clear?
carbon nanotubes has various application in fuel cells membrane, current research on cancer drug,and in electronics MEMS and NEMS etc
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
