About RTAI-Lab

The RTAI-Lab project provides a tool chain to develop block diagrams that can be compiled and executed on the RTAI real-time Linux operating system. RTAI-Lab is included in the RTAI distribution.

Block diagrams can be developed using either Scilab/Scicos (Open Source) or Matlab/Simulink/RTW (commercial).
