This example shows you how to send data using the UDP Ethernet protocol from a Simulink® model running on Gumstix Overo® hardware to another model running on the host computer
|On this page…|
In this example you will learn how to create and run a simple Simulink model on Gumstix Overo hardware that sends data to the host computer using User Datagram Protocol (UDP)User Datagram Protocol (UDP). A companion model running on the host computer will receive UDP data packets coming from Gumstix Overo hardware.
We recommend completing Getting Started with Gumstix Overo Hardware example.
To run this example you will need the following hardware:
Gumstix Overo hardware
Simulink Support Package for Gumstix Overo Hardware provides I/O peripheral blocks for Gumstix Overo hardware for easy integration with algorithms designed in Simulink.
2. In the Simulink Library Browser, navigate to Simulink Support Package for Gumstix Overo Hardware.
3. Double-click the UDP Send or UDP Receive blocks. This opens the block mask, which contains a description of the block and parameters for configuring for UDP-based communications.
In this task, you will configure and run a simple model that sends UDP packets to the host computer.
2. Double-click on the UDP Send block. Open the block mask and enter the IP address of your host computerIP address of your host computer in the Remote IP address edit box. For example, if the IP address of your host computer is 10.10.10.1, enter '10.10.10.1' in the block mask. Do not change the Remote IP port parameter. Click OK to save and close the block mask.
3. In your Simulink model, click the Deploy To Hardware button on the toolbar.
4. The model running on Gumstix Overo hardware will start sending UDP packets to port 25000 of your host computer.
In this task, you will run the host model that receives the UDP packets sent by the model running on Gumstix Overo hardware.
1. Open the host modelhost model. This model has a UDP Receive block that is configured to receive UDP packets sent by the model running on Gumstix Overo hardware. Double-click on the UDP Receive block mask. Note that the Local IP port is set to 25000, and the output data type is set to "double".
2. Click the Play button to start simulation.
3. Double-click on the Scope block to see the sine wave sent by the model that is running on Gumstix Overo hardware. The Display block in the model shows the number of UDP packets received from the Gumstix Overo hardware since the start of simulation of the host model.
1. On MATLAB command line, execute the following
h = overo; stop(h,'overo_communication');
This example showed how to send data from a model running on Gumstix Overo hardware to the host computer using UDP protocol, and also described how the data may be received by another model running on the host computer.
