In this webinar, we show how you can build up a control model to include a model of a CAN bus to look at the effect of communication networks on distributed control systems. The webinar uses two models, one with a feedback control system and an anti-lock braking system and another modeling communication between body electronic controls and their actuators, to show how to model communication networks within Simulink and look at how the network can affect system performance.

Highlights include using MathWorks Tools to:

  • Develop models of different fidelity to model bus communication and a distributed control system
  • Look at the performance of a distributed control system over a network
  • Model latencies, interference and packet loss to look at their effect on a control system

Product Focus
