Build Simulink Model and Deploy Application

After connecting the development computer to the target computer, build the Simulink model and deploy the standalone Linux application to the Linux environment. The support package allows you to deploy Adaptive software component models, AUTOSAR Adaptive architecture models, DDS Blockset models configured with eProsima and RTI Connext vendors.

Steps to build a model and deploy the application.

  • For the Simulink model, select Hardware Implementation > Hardware board as Embedded Coder Linux Docker Container. This is mandatory for the model to deploy it using support package.


    Building a model with Hardware board set to Embedded Coder Linux Docker Container generates the .mldatx file.

  • Click the Linux Target > Prepare > Create & Deploy Application Package.

  • If you have an application package (.mldatx) file already created, select it. Or you can select the Simulink model.


    To create application package from Simulink model:

    To deploy the application package:

  • The Linux Runtime Manager builds the model, creates the application package, and deploys the package.

If there is an application package (.mldatx) file available, you can also deploy it on target in the following way:

  • Right-click the application package and select Open. The following window opens.

  • Choose a target and click the OK button. The selected application gets deployed on the target.

The application name is displayed under the target computer. To view the list of measurable signals and tunable parameters, select the deployed application.

Alternatively, use these commands.

To view the available signals:

availableSignals = tg.getMeasurements(<applicationName>);
To view the tunable parameters:
availableParameters = tg.getParameters(<applicationName>);

This video walks you through how to build and deploy an AUTOSAR Adaptive Architecture model configured for external mode simulation.

Deploy DDS Blockset Models Configured with RTI Connext Vendor

To deploy DDS model configured with RTI Connext vendor:

  • Set the value of environment variable NDDSHOME_LINUX on host to the RTI Connext software folder path on Linux target machine.

    setenv('NDDSHOME_LINUX', '<Path for the software>')
    For example:
    setenv('NDDSHOME_LINUX', '/home/user/RTIDDS/glnxa64/rti_connext_dds-6.0.1_gcc7.3.0')

  • On the Linux Runtime manager, click Connect button. If the target setup is not done, a pop-up opens to fill the deployment location.

    If the docker container is already present, recreate the container using the command:


  • Click the Linux Target > Prepare > Create & Deploy Application Package and select the DDS Blockset model.

    This will generate MLDATX file for the selected model and deploys it on the target.

Select the application and click on Start Application to launch the application on target.
