What are all the different ways I can use Arduino with MathWorks products? Which of these approaches is possible on the release I’m using? Which are officially supported by MathWorks? How can I decide which one I should be using?
Arduino hardware can be connected to MATLAB and Simulink in numerous ways. This article describes the differences between the most popular ways of using Arduino hardware with MathWorks software. The latest support is described at www.mathworks.com/arduino.
Whenever possible, it is recommended to use the MATLAB Support Package for Arduino Hardware or the Simulink Support Package for Arduino Hardware. These solutions are authored by MathWorks development and will be maintained and enhanced over time. If you require any features that are not provided in these offerings, please submit a request here to help prioritize future enhancements.
1. MATLAB Support Package for Arduino Hardware
Directly stream real world inputs and outputs between an Arduino and a computer running MATLAB. Contains only MATLAB functions, not Simulink blocks. All computations occur in MATLAB on a desktop computer, which is connected to the Arduino over serial. Does not support the ability to program the Arduino for standalone execution. Authored by MathWorks development and will be enhanced over time.
Release Compatibility: R2014a and later
2. Simulink Support Package for Arduino Hardware
Embed algorithms developed in Simulink onto an Arduino device for standalone execution. Simulink models run locally on the device. On some devices, data can be sent back to Simulink when running in External mode. MATLAB code can be included by using a MATLAB Function Block. Authored by MathWorks development and will be enhanced over time.
Release Compatibility: R2012a and later
3. Legacy MATLAB and Simulink Support for Arduino Hardware
Directly stream real world inputs and outputs between an Arduino and a computer running MATLAB and Simulink. Includes both MATLAB functions and Simulink blocks. Interactive communication with a Simulink model running in Normal mode. Provides support for encoders. Does not support programming board for standalone execution. Not maintained or tested by MathWorks.
Release Compatibility: R2011a and later
4. Embedded Coder Target for Arduino
Custom Embedded Coder target that uses Arduino as the platform. Requires Simulink and Embedded Coder. Provides access to more code generation optimization options and access to the auto-generated code that is used to program the board. Supports Processor-in-the-Loop (PIL) mode. Custom Target can be modified for other microprocessors. Not maintained or tested by MathWorks.
Release Compatibility: R2013b and later
Please provide offline zip files for arduino hardware support for matlab and simulink . As the zip downloaded from option get hardware support through internet option and download option error -- invaild zip or corrupt file message appears in matlab 2015b
I had a problem when installing the Arduino support package the error says
Error installing third party software adafruit motor shield v2 Library
Do you have any idea how i can solve this problem ?
