System object: phased.Platform
Package: phased
Output current position, velocity, and orientation axes of platform
[Pos,Vel] = step(sPlat,T)
[Pos,Vel] = step(sPlat,T,V)
[Pos,Vel] = step(sPlat,T,A)
[Pos,Vel,Laxes] = step(___)
Note:
Starting in R2016b, instead of using the 
[Pos,Vel] = step(sPlat,T)
returns the current
position, Pos
, and velocity, Vel
,
of the platform. The method then updates the position and velocity.
When the MotionModel
property is set to 'Velocity'
and
the VelocitySource
property is set to 'Property'
,
the position is updated using the equation Pos
= Pos + Vel*T where T specifies
the elapsed time (in seconds) for the current step. When the MotionModel
property
is set to 'Acceleration'
and the AccelerationSource
property
is set to 'Property'
, the position and velocity
are updated using the equations Pos =
Pos + Vel*T + 1/2Acl*T^2 and Vel
= Vel + Acl*T where T specifies
the elapsed time (in seconds) for the current step.
[Pos,Vel] = step(sPlat,T,V)
returns the
current position, Pos
, and the current velocity, Vel
,
of the platform. The method then updates the position and velocity
using the equation Pos = Pos + Vel*T where T specifies
the elapsed time (in seconds) for the current step. This syntax applies
when you set the MotionModel
property to 'Velocity'
and
the VelocitySource
property to 'Input
port'
.
[Pos,Vel] = step(sPlat,T,A)
returns the
current position, Pos
, and the current velocity, Vel
,
of the platform. The method then updates the position and velocity
using the equations Pos = Pos + Vel*T
+ 1/2Acl*T^2 and Vel = Vel
+ Acl*T where T specifies the elapsed
time (in seconds) for the current step. This syntax applies when you
set the MotionModel
property to 'Acceleration'
and
the AccelerationSource
property to 'Input
port'
.
[Pos,Vel,Laxes] = step(___)
returns
the additional output Laxes
as the platform's
orientation axes when you set the OrientationAxesOutputPort
property
to true
.

Platform velocity Platform velocity, specified as a realvalued 3byN matrix
where N is the number of platforms to model. This
argument applies when you set the 

Platform acceleration Platform acceleration, specified as a realvalued 3byN matrix
