You can interact with the Simulink® Real-Time™ environment through the MATLAB® command-line interface. On your development computer, enter Simulink Real-Time functions in the MATLAB Command Window. You can also write your own MATLAB scripts that use Simulink Real-Time functions for batch processing.
The Simulink Real-Time software has more than 50 MATLAB functions for controlling the real-time application from the development computer. These functions define command-line operations that you can do in the Simulink Real-Time environment.
Complete your most common tasks by using the Simulink Real-Time UIs. Through the UIs, you have access to the Simulink Real-Time capabilities, but not their extended functionality. The command-line interface provides an interactive environment that you can extend.
The MATLAB command-line interface includes:
Environment — Configure target computers and change the environment properties without using a graphical interface.
Control — Restart the target computer, download a real-time application, start the real-time application, change stop time without regenerating code, and stop the real-time application.
Signal acquisition — Transfer logged signal data to the MATLAB workspace by uploading data from the
target computer to the
Simulation Data Inspector on the development computer between runs. For more
Parameter tuning — Change tunable block parameters and tunable global parameters while the real-time application is running or change parameters in between runs.
