Build instructions

  • Install MATLAB-supported compiler
    https://mathworks.com/support/requirements/supported-compilers.html.
  • Download the "ardupilot_sil_connector.cpp" and "make.m" files and the "includes.zip" archive.
  • Unzip the "includes.zip archive".
  • Run "make.m" to create a "ardupilot_sil_connector.mexw64" (Windows), "ardupilot_sil_connector.mexa64" (Linux), "ardupilot_sil_connector.mexmaci64" (macOS) file.

Use instructions

  • Download and install MissionPlanner https://ardupilot.org/planner/docs/mission-planner-installation.html.
  • Open MissionPlanner, select the "Simulation" tab and click on the "Plane" icon to download the ArduPlane SIL simulator.
  • After downloading the ArduPlance SIL simulator, open a command prompt and navigate to "C:\Users\Documents\Mission Planner\sitl".
  • Execute the following command in the command prompt:
ArduPlane.exe --home 42.841448,24.770727,0.5,0 --model json
  • Click the connect icon in Mission Planner. Use the default host and port options.
  • Open and run "ardupilot_sitl_connector_example.slx".
