Set the timeout value that PIL uses for reading data

Add-On Required: This feature requires the MATLAB Coder Support Package for NVIDIA Jetson and NVIDIA DRIVE Platforms add-on.



setPILTimeout(hwObj,timeVal) configures the timeout value in seconds to be used by the processor-in-the-loop (PIL) execution for reading data from the NVIDIA® target. This value is valid until the hardware object is live.

You can configure the timeout value used by PIL for reading data on an NVIDIA Jetson™ hardware from the MATLAB® environment using the setPILTimeout method of the jetson hardware connection object.

To create a live hardware connection object, provide the host name or IP address, user name, and password of the target board.

hwObj = jetson('jetson-board-name','ubuntu','ubuntu');

Input Arguments
