ThingSpeak Support from MATLAB

Prototype Internet of Things (IoT) applications using ThingSpeak and MATLAB.

ThingSpeak is a free web service hosted by ioBridge that lets you collect and store sensor data and develop Internet of Things applications. Sensor data can be sent to ThingSpeak from Arduino®, Raspberry Pi™, and other hardware. ThingSpeak support from MATLAB® lets you analyze and visualize data stored on or on private installations of the ThingSpeak server.

Specifically, you can perform the following tasks with MATLAB and ThingSpeak:

  • Acquire most recent data from public and private ThingSpeak channels
  • Simultaneously acquire data from all eight fields in a ThingSpeak channel
  • Acquire channel and field data over a specified time period, or acquire a specified number of data points
  • Remove noise and outliers
  • Perform statistical analysis on channel data and explore trends

To send data to ThingSpeak from an Arduino or Raspberry Pi, use the Simulink ThingSpeak write block found in the support packages described below:
