The Scuola Universitaria Professionale della Svizzera Italiana (SUPSI) is a university of applied sciences which offers students the possibility to get a specialization in mechatronic in the third study year. One of the most important parts of this study is epresented by the mechatronic laboratory, where students can put all the tasks connected to the different lectures into practice. Rapid Control Prototyping methods (RCP) play a key rule to achieve these objectives. Since 2003, the SUPSI has based his control laboratory on Linux RTAI. The RTAI-Lab project allows to directly integrate the code generated from the commercial suite Matlab/Simulink/RTW or from the open source suite Scilab/Scicos/RTAICodeGen into Linux RTAI. Different blocks and functions which facilitate the plant identification and the control design have been created for both environments.
