Random Number Block

Random Number Block

The Random Number block emits pseudo-random numbers, representing a normal distribution defined by its Mean and Std2 (Standard Deviation, squared).

More details on the definition of normal distributions.

This pseudo-random number generator is often used to model the noise present in a sensor measurement.


  • Mean (default = 0.0): The average value around which the distribution is centered.
  • STD2 (default = 1.0): The square of the standard deviation of the distribution.
