Add-On Required: This feature requires the Simulink Support Package for LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 Hardware add-on.


Simulink® Support Package for LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 Hardware

  • Status Light block


Control the color and effect of the status light behind the buttons on the EV3 brick.

The block input accepts the following values:

  • 0 = Off

  • 1 = Solid green

  • 2 = Solid red

  • 3 = Solid orange

  • 4 = Pulsing green

  • 5 = Pulsing red

  • 6 = Pulsing orange

  • Other values = Off

This block converts the data type of the values it receives. You do not need to convert the data type of the input signal.

During simulations without hardware, this block does nothing. See Block Produces Zeros or Does Nothing in Simulation.
