SensPlaceTool is a Matlab-implementation of algorithms for sensor placement analysis for fault diagnosis based on structural models. A small, and unfortunately highly incomplete, documentation is available here.

Installation and requirements

The code requires a basic Matlab installation and installation is simple, jst download the package and unpack the package archive. On a system with Gnu tar, it looks something like

%> tar -xvzf sensplacetool-200x-xx-xx.tar.gz
The files have the following structure
SensPlaceTool-200x-xx-xx/
  src/
  examples/
  doc/
To get started, copy the src-directory to a directory of your choice in your file system. Rename the library to e.g. sensplacetool and add the directory to Matlabs search path, e.g. using the addpath command in Matlab. This is it and now all things are installed. Try the predefined examples collected in the examples directory.

See the README file in the source distribution for further documentation and installation instructions.
