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.
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)
There is a User Manual which demonstrates an example.
