Scicos > Demos
A few simple Scicos demos are available through the
demos menu of Scilab.
You may also download examples from the book Modeling and Simulation in Scilab/Scicos
Start demo: The System-Observer demo is
viewable by clicking in the main Scilab window on
Super Blocks: One may click on the various blocks to see how they are defined. Now click on one of the Super Blocks. You see it contains a Continuous-Time Linear State-Space block, also known as CLSS. If you now click on it, a window opens up where you see how the corresponding matrices are defined. It turns out the matrices are defined by symbolic parameters (Scilab variables) A and B. Symbolic parameters are defined in the context of the diagram. Click [Cancel] and then close the previous window (entitled "System").
Diagram context: In the System-Observer window click on Edit-->Context. This is where the symbolic parameters are defined.
Run simulation: Click on Simulate-->Run
Source code: The Scicos diagrams for all the demos are in the directory $SCI/demos/scicos/
& RTAI-Lab demo
| RTAI-Lab is
a palette of blocks and
programs that allow you to design models that can be compiled for the RTAI real-time patch to the Linux
A Linux kernel that is patched with RTAI (Real-Time Application Interface) can run hard real-time programs. Hard-real time is essential to control systems where timing precision must be guaranteed with high accuracy (e.g. instruments, robots, etc.).
RTAI-Lab is not distributed within the Scilab/Scicos package. The RTAI-Lab source code can be found within the RTAI distribution in directory $RTAI/rtai-lab. It contains both Scilab and Matlab subdirectories.
