A kickoff package for Master students starting their final project: student_package.zip. Since Matlab software is an important component of most projects, this kickoff package contains guidelines and a template for developing Matlab software, a miniassignment for quickly getting up to speed, and a document with tips on effectively searching for scientific papers. Another assignment focused more on simulation, control, and estimation aspects is available: controlassign.pdf.
