Acutally we are using the embedded coder (Realtime Workshop). In terms of effectivity i can not see any big difference to a hand written C-Code. I would compare the argumentation against Simulink vs. C-Code to the argumentation against C-Code vs. Assembler.

The point is that our students do not need any C-Code experience to program our Drones. This means we can work on a more abstract layer. Compare Assembler vs. C-Code.

As it turns out and two years have passed we are now using neural networks in a nonlinear controller. The combination of neural networks, kalman filter navigation and the nonlinear controller could be realised with Simulink and realtime linux. We are still working on the gumstix and have very good realtime performance in flight tests. The developement iterations with simulink are extremely short for highly complex algorithms like mentioned.

Best Karl
