Real-Time Application Instruments and Instrument Panel Apps

Graphical instruments for displaying signal values, setting parameter values

Interface with a real-time application running on a target computer through graphical instrument panels. Create instrument panels, add instruments to the panels, and then connect parameters and signals to the instruments by using instrument objects. Run your real-time application in MATLAB®. Use the instruments to control the parameters and view the signal outputs. See Instrumentation Apps for Real-Time Applications.
