Michael Vetsch, MathWorks

Simulink® Real-Time™ lets you create real-time applications from Simulink® models and run them on dedicated target computer hardware connected to your physical system. It supports real-time simulation and testing, including rapid control prototyping, DSP and vision system prototyping, and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation.

Simulink Real-Time and Speedgoat target computer hardware are expressly designed to work together.  In this webinar we explain the process of selecting Speedgoat target computer and I/O hardware for an application or range of applications defined by the characteristics of the physical system for the real-time applications you want to create.

We discuss the following topics accompanied by examples:

  • Introduction to working with Simulink Real-Time
  • Representation of the connectivity to your physical system in a Simulink model
  • Overview of Speedgoat target computer, I/O, and protocol interface hardware
  • Characterization of your physical system, including dynamics and I/O interfaces
  • Deriving the requirements for the Speedgoat target real-time system
  • Delivery, initial setup, and acceptance testing of a Speedgoat target real-time system
  • Building, running, and testing your real-time applications connected to your  physical system
  • Support, upgrades, and maintenance of your Speedgoat target real-time system over time
