Embedding MATLAB/Simulink models in real-time control.
T-Sim allows simulating virtual components as well as controlling real components in real-time on a test bed with the Tornado automation software suite. Various models can be executed in parallel or sequentially, with each model running at its own execution rate. The Tornado real-time system provides a broad range of I/O interfaces, including bus interfaces for CAN, CAN FD, Profibus, EtherCAT, etc. for communication with other devices. The model execution is synchronized to the bus systems.
Test bed deployment and integration of the model are managed by the Tornado Designer software. Changes are stored in the database for good traceability.
