I've been trying to read data from my arduino UNO on simulink with no success.
I connected a potentiometer on analog port 3 (A3) on the arduino. On simulink I have an Analog Input block connected to a scope block.
I run on target and then play the simulation, but I only read 0 on the scope.
To be honest, I'm pretty confused. The help files were not really helpful and I have tried every possible combinations of blocks. Maybe it's best using a Serial Receive block?!
By the way, I'm quite new to Simulink.
Any help will be greatly appreciated, as I need to get this working for my project.
Make sure you have the right pin selected in the input block. When you play the model, set it to run 'inf' so you can play around with your board and Simulink will keep running.
Are you sure you're setup to run on the arduino board? In the configuration parameters there is a 'Run on Target Hardware' section. You can select the Arduino Uno from here.
How are you running the model? Try tools -> run on target hardware -> run.
Thanks for your answer.
First of all, I should point out my specs: I'm running a Windows 7 x64 Professional, Core i7 720QM, 8gb Dual-Channel DDR3, nVidia Quadro FX 880m, Matlab 2012b (Arduino support package installed through MATLAB target installer). Everything is up-to-date.
Here's a walk through of what I'm doing: 1) Start a new model; 2) Insert a Analog Input block (Set pin to 0 and sample time to 0.1); 3) Insert a scope block and connect to the Analog Input block; 4) Set the simulation time to "inf"; 5) Tools > Run on Target Hardware > Prepare to Run...; 6) Set target hardware to Arduino UNO; 7) Set host COM port: to COM5 (tested on the arduino IDE to make sure it's the right port, and it is.); 8) Apply and close prepare to run window; 9) Tools > Run on Target Hardware > Run...; ("Model successfully downloaded to 'Arduino UNO'); (In my understanding the Tx LED on the Arduino should be blinking, but isn't) 10) Run simulate and get nothing but zero's on the scope;
I have checked the circuit, and it works just fine on the Arduino IDE. It must be a detail that I'm missing, but frankly, I have no idea how to make it work.
I thought maybe I could run it on External mode, but I have an Arduino UNO and the external mode only runs on the Arduino MEGA.
I tried running through YouTube and the MATLAB community but I couldn't see a single video or post about someone running a model on the Arduino and viewing the results on simulink.
I kind of managed to make it run, by making one model with Analog input connected to Serial Transmit and download it to the Arduino. Then, on a new block a set a Serial receive block connected to a scope (I also set a Serial Configuration block, both found on the Instrument Control Toolbox) a run a simulation with 'inf'. It kind of works, but very sluggish, and I'm not satisfied with that solution.
Anyway, any help will be greatly appreciated.
To format of the text isn't coming as I wrote it, but I guess you can read it, sorry for that.
Have you solved the problem? I have the same issue. The sensor works very well at Arduino IDE. I also detects voltage change at the pin using a multimeter. But i cannot make it work at Simulink. I tried Rodolfo's way of using the serial port receive/send, it did not work either. I use win7 64bit + Matlab 2012a. Any suggestions?
What did you do exactly to read with Simulink ?
For my part, I always :
* make a new variable with my Arduino in command line : >> Due = arduino('COM4');
(I use a Duemilanove)
* go to Simulink, put a scope in my model and link it to the Analog Input found in the ArduinoIO library AND put a Setup block (found at the same place) in the model
* Double-click on the setup block and chose "existing variable #1" (or something like this) and enter the name of my variable "Due" in the field below.
* Then go to the Analog Input block and chose the *same* "existing variable #1".
* Run my model and it works.
Hope that will help !
Can anybody will give me pictorial representation of communicating virtual com port with proteus and simulink(2012a) for detecting analog signal and displaying it on scope of simulink(2012a)???????????????
