The GOcontroll Moduline II controller can be programmed with Matlab Simulink. By easily drag and drop function blocks into your Simulink model, no knowledge about any programming language is needed to build a control system. Inside the model, you can use a function block that is designed for the GPS module. This function block enables you to configure the GPS module according to you demands using a graphic interface. The explanation of each configuration can be found inside the function block.
By double clicking the function block, the mask will open. Here you can configure your GPS module according your demands
The sample time determines the function block execution frequency. -1 is deafult and doesn't have to be changed
Select the module connector on the processor board on which the module is plugged in to
Check if you want the date in your project
Check if time is needed in a project (synchronization)
For positioning and tracking, check this checkbox
In case of speed calculation you can check the GPS speed option
Apply the configuration of the module
Standard information that comes from the GPS module is the GPS fix status, the number of satellites in view and the number of satellites in use. This onformation can be used to check the reliability of the GPS signal.
3 output ports are added to the function block; year, month and day
4 output ports are added to the function block; hours, minutes, seconds, milliseconds
3 output ports are added to the function block; longitude, latitude and altitude
The speed option only adds 1 output to the function block.
1 The function blocks are designed on top of the available, open source blockset of HAN Automotive Research. More information and downloads can be found on: www.openMBD.com
