Abstract:


In recently, the technique of the model-based development has come to be used more widely on the site of the embedded system development. In the present study, we propose the technique for model-based development of the embedded system using latest version of Scilab/Xcos. As former study, we have studied model-based development using Scilab 4/Scicos and LEGO Mindstorms NXT. However, these systems are obsolating and out of support. From this issue, as an instance of applying we tried the stabilizing control of the two-wheeled inverted pendulum, using Gyro Boy as known as LEGO Mindstorms EV3. The control procedure was generated from the designed feedback control system automatically of block diagram for stabilization and applied to TOPPERS/EV3RT of LEGO Mindstorms EV3. As a result of the experiment, we obtained stable execution results as simulation and actual EV3 Gyro Boy. Therefore, the utility of the proposed technique was confirmed.
