This homework question is poorly phrased. It is very difficult to do anything in Matlab without using builtin functions.

a = '01001011';
b = '00100011';
c = '00000000';
% Cosider a carry bit
carry = 0;
% loop through from last bit to first bit
% add the bit from a and b and the carray
% update the results for the current bit and the carry bit

The answer Chunru gave used the plus operator if I recall correctly. That is a builtin function.
Also, if it isn't homework, why would you limit yourself? Is there some part of binary addition you don't understand and want to do by hand?
