I'm on Matlab R2020b. I was able to successfully run the Robotics Playground toolbox in the obstacle environment with 2 motors.
However, when I included a Distance Sensor Block into the Simulink model, I get the following error about robotics.OccupancyGrid

Hello Benjamin,
robotics.OccupancyGrid is the old name for the occupancyMap object. It is a valid alias, so if you try to use robotics.OccupancyGrid, it will automatically use occupancyMap instead. However, note that occupancyMap is in Navigation Toolbox, not the Robotics System Toolbox, so you'll need it installed and licensed to use this block.

Thanks for the response. I have tested with the navigation toolbox installed and it is working now.
