Signal Monitoring and Tracing with Simulink Real-Time Explorer

Signal visualization with and without real-time information

If you require only the signal value, not the time at which it reaches that value, monitor a signal with Simulink® Real-Time™ Explorer.

If you require both the signal value and the time at which it reaches that value, add a real-time scope to your model. Create and configure scopes with Simulink Real-Time Explorer.
