    Create ss, a ScenarioSimulation object.

    rrApp = roadrunner('C:\Project\TestHighwayRoute'); 
    ss = createSimulation(rrApp); 

    Start the simulation.

    set(ss, 'SimulationCommand','Start')

    Pause the simulation.

    set(ss, 'SimulationCommand','Pause')

    Get all actors in the simulation.

    actorsAll = get(ss,'ActorSimulation')

    Get the static specifications of the first actor.

    actormodel = get(actorsAll(1),'ActorModel')

    Get the paint color of the first actor.

    pc = getAttribute(actormodel, 'PaintColor')
