Interfacing Arduino with MATLAB and Blinking LED

Interfacing Arduino with MATLAB and Blinking LED

Interfacing Arduino with MATLAB allows you to use the advanced features of MATLAB to control and analyze data from the Arduino board. Here's a simple example that shows how you can use MATLAB to control a blinking LED connected to the Arduino board:

  1. Connect the LED to the Arduino board: Connect the positive leg of the LED to a digital pin on the Arduino board and the negative leg of the LED to a resistor. Connect the other end of the resistor to the ground (GND) pin on the Arduino board.

  2. Install the Arduino support package for MATLAB: The Arduino support package for MATLAB allows you to control the Arduino board from within MATLAB. To install it, go to the Add-Ons menu in MATLAB, and then select "Get Hardware Support Packages". Search for the "Arduino" package, and then install it.

  3. Write the MATLAB code to control the LED: The following code sets the pin mode for the LED, sets the LED pin to be an output, and then turns the LED on and off repeatedly with a delay of 1 second:

  4. Upload the code to the Arduino board: In MATLAB, click the "Upload to Hardware" button to upload the code to the Arduino board.

  5. Observe the blinking LED: If everything is connected correctly, the LED should start blinking. You can use the MATLAB code to control the blinking rate and other behavior of the LED.

Note: The pin number and LED connection may vary depending on your setup. Make sure to adjust the code accordingly.
