MATLAB Support Package for Raspberry Pi Hardware

Acquire sensor and image data from your Raspberry Pi

MATLAB® Support Package for Raspberry Pi™ Hardware enables you to communicate with a Raspberry Pi™ remotely from a computer running MATLAB. You can acquire data from sensors and imaging devices connected to the Raspberry Pi and process them in MATLAB. You can also communicate to other hardware through the GPIO, serial, I2C, and SPI pins.
