File Information
Description

This example improves upon the previous attempts made on this demo:

http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/26123

A more recent enhancement for adding realism, quaternions and trajectory tracing was added to this submission here:

http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/27986

1. Multiple viewpoints and a 3D plot embedded inside a MATLAB GUI.

2. By attaching the Viewpoint node to the aircraft node, the second view from the aircraft is created which gives a better view of how the terrain looks from above.

3. As mentioned in 2, we also add a Spot Light node to the aircraft and alter is direction to create a lighting effect.

4. Experiment with the parameters a and b of the helical trajectory to see the various animations and views.

If you would like to explore more on how to use various VRML nodes, please refer to the tutorials available on the web:

Required Products Aerospace Toolbox
Simulink 3D Animation
MATLAB release MATLAB 7.10 (R2010a)
Other requirements Make sure you have enough free memory before running the animation.
