Install Support Package for Customizing Scenes
To customize scenes in the Unreal® Editor and use them in Simulink®, you must install the UAV Toolbox Interface for Unreal Engine® Projects.
These installation instructions apply to R2023a. If you are using a previous release, see the documentation for Other Releases.
Verify Software and Hardware Requirements
Before installing the support package, make sure that your environment meets the minimum software and hardware requirements described in Unreal Engine Simulation Environment Requirements and Limitations.
Install Support Package
To install the UAV Toolbox Interface for Unreal Engine Projects support package, follow these steps:
On the MATLAB® Home tab, in the Environment section, select Add-Ons > Get Add-Ons.
In the Add-On Explorer window, search for the UAV Toolbox Interface for Unreal Engine Projects support package. Click Install.
You must have write permission for the installation folder.
The UAV Toolbox Interface for Unreal Engine Projects support package includes these components:
An Unreal Engine project file (
AutoVrtlEnv.uproject) and its associated files. This project file includes editable versions of the prebuilt 3D scenes that you can select from the Scene source parameter of the Simulation 3D Scene Configuration block.
RoadRunnerMaterials. These plugins establish the connection between Simulink and the Unreal Editor and is required for co-simulation.
To configure your environment so that you can customize scenes, use
copyExampleSim3dProject to copy the support package components to a
folder on your local machine. For example, this code copies the files to
After you install and set up the support package, you can begin customizing scenes. If you want to use a project developed using a prior release of the UAV Toolbox Interface for Unreal Engine Projects support package, you must migrate the project to make it compatible with the currently supported Unreal Editor version, see Migrate Projects Developed Using Prior Support Packages. Otherwise, see Customize Unreal Engine Scenes Using Simulink and Unreal Editor.
