I am trying to import an urdf file into simulink by the function 'smimport'.
>> smimport('open_manipulator.urdf')
However, there is an error, which shows:
Error using smimport_implementation
The robot element must have a "name" attribute.
I feel confused about this error and really want to solve it.
Thanks in advance!

This error happens if no robot name is defined in the urdf file!
The first line of the urdf file should look something like this:
<robot name="Name of my Robot">
I'm guessing here, but you probably just have <robot> there without a defined name. Adding a name should resolve the problem.
