How to implement a TCP/IP connection to Lego Mindstroms EV3 hardware?

3 views (last 30 days)
Hello everybody,
has someone some hints about to develop a TCP/IP connection to Lego Mindstorms EV3 hardware? I have the feeling, that the TCP/IP Send and Receive blocks from the Instrument Control Toolbox does not work with the EV3 hardware. At least in the list of Instrument Control Toolbox Supported Hardware is no Lego Mindstorms EV3 and it does not work.
Thanks for your help!
Best regards Benedict

Thank you very much!

Could you explain more why you need your own TCP/IP connection to the EV3? Does the functionality in the support package not meet your needs? What specific functionality are you looking for?

Are you sure you really want to do it at that low level?

You could install the MATLAB support package and look at the source code. Just be prepared that coming up with your own protocol for communication could be a non trivial task.
