Engineers who use Simulink® and Stateflow® within Model-Based Design often need to integrate state machines and control logic designed in Stateflow with Simulink blocks, subsystems, and components. Common tasks include calling a Lookup Table block from Simulink to perform interpolation on a specific Stateflow variable. Stateflow is often used to enable or disable Simulink subsystems that represent specific tasks, such as startup and shutdown, or individual controller types. Another common procedure involving both Simulink and Stateflow is controlling the behavior of system components, such as the guidance and navigation system of an airplane or a set of sensors located in an automobile.
