Simulink is pretty widely used, especially for modelling and rapid
development of control software.  Equipment vendors provide blocks for
their devices, gyroscopes and such, that can be used for the models and
then Matlab will generate control code to run on the targeted system.
Simulink itself is basically a way of setting up a big system of DEs, but
what really makes it go are the vendor blocks and code generation.
