Orocos Simulink Toolbox

The Flander's Mechatronics Technology Centre ( www.fmtc.be ) has released a toolbox for creating Orocos components in Matlab/Simulink from The Mathworks. It lets you generate from Real-Time Workshop a ready to use component from a Simulink model. The toolbox works for Simulink in Linux and Windows and comes with a Windows installer and a user manual. A component generated with this toolbox can be immediately compiled and loaded in an Orocos application, without the need to write extra code.

Simulink for Orocos example: Orocos blocks are added to a modelSimulink for Orocos example: Orocos blocks are added to a model

Users can build a component by adding Orocos data ports for communication with other components to their model and each model can be made run-time and XML configurable using Orocos properties. Multiple Simulink components can run together in the same application. The code has been made available under the GNU General Public License (GPL)
