Standalone Target Computer Setup

Real-time application configuration to be independent of MATLAB®

You can create a real-time application that runs standalone on a target computer, without a development computer running MATLAB. Configure the standalone application so that it starts running when the target computer starts. The application continues for as long as the target computer is operating.

To start and stop the standalone application, tune parameters, and view signal values, use Simulink® Real-Time™ Explorer or use the target computer command-line interface.

Real-Time Application and Target Computer Modes

Run real-time applications by using the target computer in connected mode, standalone mode, or external mode. Speedgoat® target machines boot the QNX® Neutrino® RTOS and then you run real-time applications in the selected target computer mode.
