OT: No free alternative to Simulink and MATLAB

Trick: Compile-time matrix and vector sizes through templates. Make everything inline such the compiler can optimize all the inner objects away.

On the other side nonlinear control techniques with neural networks are used (dynamic inversion) to control the airplane.
All this high level algorithms are usually programmed and evaluated in matlab by engeneering scientists. This is the reason for using Matlab/Simulink Coder with RT-Linux hardware to create a one click solution for testing the algorithms in flight.

As usual, it's not the particular functionality of the platform that's important, but the surrounding ecosystem of tools and packages, that keeps people using MATLAB rather than the alternatives-- in my opinion, at least.

Really the closest competitor here would be something like Eigen.
