Sfunction in Simulink
Sfunction in Simulink
Hi,
I am trying to use an Sfunction in Matlab to use Genie midsimulation in Simulink. The model needs to be used in the software Veristand, so I need to build the model and therefore generate a function wrapper in C or C++. Does anyone have an example of an Sfunction wrapper in C or C++ which calls Smile/Genie?
If not, what are the necessary steps to implement the Genie connection to Matlab in C/C++?
Thanks in advance!

Re: Sfunction in Simulink
Code: Select all
mex setup cpp
Code: Select all
cd('full/path/to/smile/directory');
Code: Select all
.
.
.
class MexFunction : public matlab::mex::Function {
public:
void operator()(matlab::mex::ArgumentList outputs, matlab::mex::ArgumentList inputs) {
std::shared_ptr<matlab::engine::MATLABEngine> matlabPtr = getEngine();
matlab::data::ArrayFactory factory;
int method = checkMethod(inputs);
checkArguments(method, outputs, inputs);
wrapperBegin(method, outputs, inputs);
}
private:
.
.
.
//WRAPPER BLOCK
int nodesCount(const void * netPtr) {
DSL_network * net = (DSL_network*)netPtr;
return net>GetNumberOfNodes();
}
.
.
.
void wrapperNodesCount(matlab::mex::ArgumentList & outputs, matlab::mex::ArgumentList & inputs) {
matlab::data::ArrayFactory factory;
matlab::data::TypedArray<uint64_t> arr = inputs[1];
auto netPtr = decodePtr(arr[0]);
outputs[0] = factory.createScalar(nodesCount(netPtr));
}
.
.
.
};
Methods whose names starts with "wrapper" are a "bridge" between Matlab and C++ and those above them do all logic.
You can compile the code with the command:
Code: Select all
mex matsmile.cpp
Example commands:
Code: Select all
NET = matsmile('createnetwork'); % create new DSL_network object
matsmile('readfile', NET, 'hepar.xdsl'); % read network from xdsl file
matsmile('nodescount', NET); % get number of nodes in loaded/created network
matsmile('setevidence' NET, 'alcoholism', 'present'); % set evidence on given node
matsmile('freenetwork', NET); % releases memory, don't forget about that because of memory leaks :)
Re: Sfunction in Simulink
Thank you, the connection between Matlab and Genie using C++ works!
However, Matlab is crashing during simulation in Simulink. It seems to be the GetMatrix() function, as the simulation runs fine without this. Are there alternative ways to extract the probability of a state at a particular node? Preferably as an integer so it can be used further in simulation.

Re: Sfunction in Simulink
https://support.bayesfusion.com/docs/SM ... value.html. If your network contains Equation nodes, you have to get node value as DSL_valEqEvaluation.
But it is still probabilities vector.
If you need integer, chosen node should be observed:
I hope the answer was helpful.
I added node and outcome validation, so the debugging process should be easier now. Getting node value depends on its type, but most common case (CPT node) is described here Code: Select all
DSL_valEqEvaluation * eqValue = static_cast<DSL_valEqEvaluation *>(nodeValue);
const vector<double> &discBeliefs = eqValue>GetDiscBeliefs();
If you need integer, chosen node should be observed:
Code: Select all
node>Value()>IsRealEvidence();
node>Value()>GetEvidence();

Re: Sfunction in Simulink
There is slightlyimproved SmileMatlab wrapper:
Hello program that uses wrapper looks like this:
It has minimal functionality to support Discrete Bayesian Networks.Hello program that uses wrapper looks like this:
Code: Select all
net = matsmile('newNetwork');
matsmile('readFile', net, 'VentureBN.xdsl');
matsmile('setEvidence', net, 'Forecast', 'Moderate');
matsmile('updateBeliefs', net);
beliefs = matsmile('getValue', net, 'Success');
outcomeIds = matsmile('getOutcomeIds', net, 'Success');
fprintf("%s\n", outcomeIds + "=" + beliefs);
matsmile('deleteNetwork', net);

Re: Sfunction in Simulink
The information about calling SMILE from Matlab (including the source code of matsmile.cpp) is now included in main SMILE manual at https://support.bayesfusion.com/docs
