Control and Instrumentation

Interactive signal and parameter instrumentation with Simulink® Real-Time™ and MATLAB® language, signal tracing and logging, and parameter tuning

To evaluate the behavior of the real-time application, you can add instrumentation to the model, tune parameters, and display results.

Instrumentation includes signals marked for visualization by using the Simulation Data Inspector or Simulink Scope blocks, signals connected to File Log blocks, and signals connected to graphical instruments by using instrument objects. You can instrument a real-time application from the Simulink Real-Time model by using the MATLAB language.

Tune scalar, vector, or matrix parameters and view signal values as numbers or as timestamped traces by using the Simulation Data Inspector. To identify parameters to tune or signals to observe, navigate the model hierarchy or create parameter and signal groups.

Design and run App Designer instrument panels containing graphical instruments. When you run an instrument panel, it interacts continuously with the real-time application and updates the associated parameters and signals.
