For those who want to use Raspberry Pi Camera Board with Simulink:
The latest release of the Raspbian Wheezy image has V4L2 drivers for the Camera Board. This means that you can use the V4L2 Video Capture block in the Simulink block library for Raspberry Pi to capture images from the Raspberry Pi Camera Board. Here are the instructions:
1. Upgrade your Raspbian image to the latest to get the official V4L2 driver for Camera Board:
# sudo apt-get update
# sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
# sudo rpi-update
# sudo reboot
3. After reboot, execute the following command to load the V4L2 driver for the Raspberry Pi Camera:
# sudo modprobe bcm2835-v4l2
After this step, you should see a /dev/video0 device (check by "ls -al /dev/vid*") that corresponds to the Camera Board. Now use the V4L2 Video Capture Block to capture images from this video device.
Note that you need to perform step 3 above every time you reboot your board. You can incorporate the command in step 3 into "/etc/rc.local" to automatically load the V4L2 driver at boot time.
Hello, I've finally figured it out. All of the source files are native to the Pi on it's ext file system. You can implement linux commands on the RPi using the h=raspberrypi; connection object.
Also there are third party programs such as WinSCP which will allow you to establish a connection with the RPi to give you a windows explorer-like interface where you can drag and drop files.
Once I figured this out, I've come to realize how powerful this is. We get the native flexibility of the RPi with the added power of loading SIMULINK models. Thank you.
