Im having a engine and a motor connected in parallel to a vehicle body. I do not want the engine to run until the vehicle has reached a specific velocity. The specific velocity is reached due to the motor. Once the vehicle reaches that velocity the vehicle should run on an engine and stop the motor. How can I do this?
Thank you

It sounds like you want a very binary controller. If a velocity is larger than a threshold do one thing, if not do another. If that is right, check out the switch block

This block outputs the top input when the middle input satisfies a constraint. Otherwise it passes the bottom input. With velocity as your middle input you can use the other two to turn on and off your other blocks.
