Simulate and test Simulink models with hardware in real time
Real-time simulation and testing extends beyond simulation by verifying algorithmic design behavior while running models at required speeds, respecting precise timing requirements. The executing model is connected to sensors, actuators, and other hardware. Real-time simulation and testing encompasses rapid control prototyping, DSP and vision system prototyping, and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation.
Rapid Control Prototyping
You can test a control system design running on target computer hardware while it is connected to your physical plant or system. (The target computer hardware acts as your controller.)
You can test your controller hardware, which can include a production or embedded controls implementation, using a simulation of your plant or system. (Here, the target computer acts as your physical plant or system.)
Real-time simulation and testing enables you to:
