I previously designed a controller for lateral velocity and yaw rate signals based on bicycle model using only simulink. Now, I would like to use carmaker/simulink toolchain but I have some doubts regarding how to carry out this process, could someone please help me?
I mean, I suppose that I have to import and export some signals but I don't know precisely how to do that.
Thanks.

Can you be a bit more explicit what signals you'd need to import? What particular calculations would you need to carry out? What (calculation) outputs would you like to have? Data import and export can be done relatively easy in matlab environment if this is of your concern.

Hey Sulaymon,
First, thanks for your answer. Let me explain using the image below,
controller.jpg
I would like to adapt a carmaker model for my controller design. In our case, we consider that our vehicle has two types of actuators, AFS and RTV, first one at the front axle (control input dc), and second one at the rear axle (control input Mz). Our first approach was was developed the controller using only Simulink. As second (and better) approach we want to use a carmaker model to test our controller. For this task, we would need to know how to connect carmaker with simulink and use the showed signals in the image above where:
vx: longitudinal velocity.
vy: lateral velocity.
wz: yaw rate
thetax: roll position.
wx: roll rate.
Please, if you have time, check the following link:
In this paper, we designed the afore mentioned only using simulink.
Please let me know if you have any question or recommendation.
Thanks in advance.
