Samsung GALAXY Android Devices Support from Simulink

Run models on Samsung GALAXY Android devices

Capabilities and Features:

Simulink® Support Package for Samsung GALAXY® Android™ Hardware lets you program and run algorithms on Samsung GALAXY Android devices. The support package includes a library of Simulink blocks for accessing the devices' sensors, including camera and GPS.

You can design signal or image processing algorithms and applications for mobile devices from Simulink. You can monitor and fine-tune the application using the sensors of your smartphone or tablet. Then you can deploy the finished application to your Samsung GALAXY Android hardware with the click of a button.

The support package includes:

  • Library of Simulink blocks that program your Samsung GALAXY Android device I/O, including inputs such as accelerometer, ambient temperature, camera, gyroscope, location (GPS), humidity, light, pressure and outputs to the device display, speaker, and other devices connected via WiFi (such as user datagram protocol, UDP)
  • Interactive parameter tuning of outputs and signal monitoring of sensor inputs for applications running on your Samsung GALAXY Android smartphone or tablet 
  • Simulink blocks that can send data to or receive data from other Android apps 
  • Model deployment for standalone operation on the device, allowing interaction by generating touchscreen widgets, such as sliders and buttons 
  • Generation of Android Studio compatible projects
