addComponent

Add component to AUTOSAR architecture model

Description

example

components = addComponent(archCM,compNames) adds one or more components specified in the compNames argument to composition or architecture model archCM. The archCM argument is a composition or architecture model handle returned by a previous call to addComposition, autosar.arch.createModel, or autosar.arch.loadModel. The components output argument returns one or more component handles, which are autosar.arch.Component objects.

components = addComponent(archCM,compNames,'Kind',value) allows you to specify the component type for all added components. Valid component types are Application (the default), SensorAccuator, ComplexDeviceDriver, EcuAbstraction, and ServiceProxy.

Examples

In an AUTOSAR architecture model:

  1. Add a composition named Sensors and, inside the composition, add AUTOSAR sensor-actuator components named PedalSnsr and ThrottleSnsr.

  2. At the top level of the model, add an application component named Controller1 and a sensor-actuator component named Actuator.

% Create AUTOSAR architecture model
modelName = 'myArchModel';
archModel = autosar.arch.createModel(modelName);

% Add a composition
composition = addComposition(archModel,'Sensors');

% Add 2 components inside Sensors
names = {'PedalSnsr','ThrottleSnsr'};
sensorSWCs = addComponent(composition,names,'Kind','SensorActuator');
layout(composition); % auto-arrange layout

% Add components at architecture model top level
addComponent(archModel,'Controller1');
actuator = addComponent(archModel,'Actuator');
set(actuator,'Kind','SensorActuator');
layout(archModel);  % Auto-arrange layout

Input Arguments

collapse all

AUTOSAR composition or architecture model to which to add one or more components. The argument is a composition or architecture model handle returned by a previous call to addComposition, autosar.arch.createModel, or autosar.arch.loadModel.

Example: archModel

Names of the components to add to the specified composition or architecture model.

Example: {'PedalSnsr','ThrottleSnsr'}

Type of AUTOSAR components to add to the specified composition or architecture model. The specified type applies to all added components.

Example: 'Kind','SensorActuator'

Output Arguments

Returns one or more AUTOSAR component handles, which are autosar.arch.Component objects, with component properties.
