Write uORB data for the specified uORB topic
UAV Toolbox Support Package for PX4 Autopilots / PX4 uORB Read and Write Blocks
The PX4 uORB Write block accepts a Simulink® nonvirtual bus that corresponds to the specified uORB topic and publishes the message to the uORB network.
On each sample hit, the block converts the
Msg input from a Simulink
bus signal to a uORB message and publishes it. The block does not distinguish whether the
input is a new message; but, merely publishes it on every sample hit.

To specify the type of uORB message, use the parameter,
