Add Simulink model to Run-on-boot

Add-On Required: This feature requires the Simulink Support Package for Raspberry Pi Hardware add-on.



addToRunOnBoot(raspPiObj,'model_name1') adds a Simulink® model to Run-on-boot. If you add a model to Run-on-boot, the model automatically starts to run each time you restart the Raspberry Pi® hardware.


Simulink Online™ does not support the addToRunOnBoot function currently.

To add a model to Run-on-boot:

  1. Create a connection to the Raspberry Pi hardware.

    raspPiObj = raspberrypi('','pi','raspberry')
    rasPiObj = 
      raspberrypi with properties:
        DeviceAddress: ''
                 Port: 22

    For more information on creating a connection to Raspberry Pi hardware, see raspberrypi.

  2. Use the addToRunOnBoot function.

    If the model is successfully added, the function returns the name of the model. Otherwise, the function returns an empty cell.

    ans = 
         1×1 cell array
