Robotsimulator is undefined function

So I am working my way through the official Mathworks Robotics webinar, and it calls up RobotSimulator as part of the demonstration, and it seems like it is supposed to be a file that Mathworks provides as part of the Robotic system or ROS toolboxes. However, when I try to call it up, I get the following error:
Undefined function or variable 'RobotSimulator'.
I am using the following script to call it up:
%% Initialize ROS
%% Create the RobotSimulator
simu = RobotSimulator
%% Get all the nods that are part of the ROS network
rosnode list
Which is just a straight copy from the webinar at the 10:00 mark.
The only thing I can think of right now - aside a toolbox being broken - is that 'RobotSimulator' is a depreciated in v2.2, while the webinar seems to be using v1. Is this case, or is there a new way to call up the example files?

That was from a demo, and not a shipping product feature.
The closest thing I can think of in the latest version is the basic MATLAB example simulator in this ROS Toolbox example:

That is very disappointing that they are using a demo for their webinar, and somewhat par for the course in my experience with the Robotic Systems Toolbox. The documenation needs a lot of work, imo.
Thank you for the link though, I'll read through it.
