Error using exampleUti​ls.compone​ntExamples​Dir (line 13) Invalid argument "simulink_automotive".

16 views (last 30 days)
I know that I am facing this issue due to me not installing the correct toolbox. I am trying to open the example given by the Matlab Command "openExample('simulink_automotive/ModelingAnAutomaticTransmissionControllerExample')". But I am unsure of which one that I need to install so that I can open the example of
Modeling an Automatic Transmission Controller.
Can you let me know which one is the toolbox that I need to install? I have both stateflow and simulink installed. This is the exact error message I am getting.
Error using exampleUtils.componentExamplesDir (line 13)
Invalid argument "simulink_automotive".
Error in findExample (line 18)
componentExamplesDir = exampleUtils.componentExamplesDir(component);
Error in openExample (line 30)
metadata = findExample(exampleId);

From my understanding, the above mentioned error occurs when a toolbox required to open a model is not installed.
The dependencies.toolboxDependencyAnalysis(files) gives a cell array of the toolbox names required by the files in the argument 'files'. These are the toolbox names for the model you mentioned.
[names, folders] = dependencies.toolboxDependencyAnalysis(files)
names =
1×4 cell array
{'MATLAB'} {'Simulink'} {'Simulink Coder'} {'Stateflow'}
folders =
1×4 cell array
{'matlab'} {'simulink'} {'simulinkcoder'} {'stateflow'}
Since you mentioned you have 'Simulink' and 'Stateflow' installed, you may have to install 'Simulink Coder'.
Hope this helps!

Yo! Make sure you use the latest version of Matlab (or later than the example you want to open) and run the examples you need to see if it works.
