1. Download the ready-to-use VMware Image
The ready-to-use VMware Image contains an already set up SmartSoft, MDSD Toolchain and Player/Stage Simulator. The effort is fairly low since we provide a ready installation of all required packages. There is no need to modify the current settings of your computer and no danger to mess up something and to get stuck with a broken configuration since you can always go back to our original image.
2. Read the Tutorial: Getting Started with the VMware Image
This tutorial explains how to use the SmartSoft MDSD Toolchain. It guides you through the first steps of setting SmartSoft and its development tools into operation.
For modeling the components and the deployment the SmartMARS (Modeling and Analysis of Robotics systems) profile is used.
