Is it possible to use Bluetooth with Matlab + Raspberry Pi?

25 views (last 30 days)
Hello there :) I'm currently searching for possibilities to connect an raspi wireless to Matlab/Simulink. The aim is to read data from a sensor connected to the raspi. I saw tutorials describing how to do that via wifi. Would it also work with a usb bluetooth dongle connected to the raspi? Couldn't find anything about that on the internet, so I would be really thankful for any feedback.
Kind regards :)

When matters are so urgent that you do not even have time to leave contact information, then you probably should not be relying on MATLAB Answers.

To the best of my knowledge, you need the Instrument Control Toolbox to use Bluetooth integrated into your computer. See: Connecting to Bluetooth Devices from MATLAB.
The USB dongle could be a work-around, since it will create a serial object that you should be able to connect with as you would any other serial objects created by USB hardware.
(I bought a Blootooth dongle with this very work-around in mind, but I’ve not had the opprotunity to work with it yet.)
