Implements real-time, hardware-in-the-loop Simulink models on PC Hardware


  • Runs Simulink models in real time on any PC
  • Works with industry standard I/O
  • Includes optional preconfigured engineering simulators and controllers
  • Offers fast execution, small fixed-step sizes
  • Supports SMP or distributed targets for faster execution
  • Runs on a reliable, industrial-grade RTOS


RT-LAB® enables Simulink models to interact with the real world in real time. The primary use is to implement real-time, hardware-in-the-loop engineering simulators and rapid prototyping controllers. RT-LAB works by linking code generated with the Simulink Coder to highly-optimized runtime libraries. These libraries enable you to leverage the full power of modern PC architectures, achieving jitter-free fixed-step sizes down to a few tens of microseconds. RT-LAB can run models quickly on SMP or distributed targets by automating the preparation, downloading, and running of parallel models. The RT-LAB family of products also includes specialized blocksets that help improve the precision and speed of real-time simulation.

You can use RT-LAB engineering simulators and rapid prototyping controllers to prototype working controllers. Test engineers use RT-LAB to validate controllers against real-time, hardware-in-the-loop, dynamic Simulink models of the plant, be it a virtual vehicle, an aircraft or missile, a robot, or an electric power system. RT-LAB also supports Stateflow and the Simscape Electrical.
