Continuous Integration for Verification of Simulink® Models Using GitLab

This project is used in the explanation of the Technical Article 'Continuous Integration for Verification of Simulink® Models Using GitLab®' to describe a simple end-to-end example showing Model Based Design integration into GitLab®. Upon following the steps in the Technical Article, one can setup a running Continuous Integration pipeline performing verify, build, test and package stages to generate corresponding artifacts.

Quick Start guide

  1. Fork the repository to your own GitHub® account.
  2. Setup the GitLab® Runner, as outlined in the Technical Article.
  3. Create a new CI job using your forked repository.

Please refer the Technical Article 'Continuous Integration for Verification of Simulink Models Using GitLab' for detailed instructions on how to setup and run the continuous integration pipeline.

Design files

The Design folder consists of sub-folders for each of the models in the Cruise Control System.

The models are:

  1. crs_controller
  2. CruiseControlMode
  3. DriverSwRequest
  4. TargetSpeedThrottle

Each model folder consists of:
