HLA Interoperability for MATLAB models – HLA Toolbox™
By Forward Sim
The HLA Toolbox is the MATLAB® interface to the High Level Architecture standards, HLA 1.3 and IEEE 1516 for distributed simulation. Designed to improve organization efficiency to participate in multinational simulations or to implement distributed simulation locally, the HLA Toolbox greatly simplifies federation development.
Federate common interactions with the Run Time Infrastructure (RTI) can easily be implemented using the graphical user interface (hlaGUI) to generate the required m-files. The hlaGUI also provides an organized tree structure for Federation Object Model (FOM) visualization, which is used to identify the Attributes and Interactions your federate will publish and/or subscribe. The m-code generated by the HLA Toolbox interface can be customized to implement the specifics of your model using any of the RTI services.
The HLA Toolbox accelerates federation implementation and enables the use of MATLAB and its Toolboxes at the federate development level. Matlab development features such as the debugger, the profiler, M-Lint code checker, the Graphical User Interface Development Environment (GUIDE), the visualization tools (2D & 3D) and all the data analysis capabilities are just a few of the advantages you get by developing your HLA federates in MATLAB.
