MATLAB Support for Arduino - Connect via ethernet?

Asked by Andreas Nagl on 13 Oct 2017
Latest activity Commented on by willian macena on 14 Feb 2019
Hello,
I would like to use the "MATLAB Support Package for Arduino Hardware" for my Arduino Leonardo (with an Ethernet-Shield). However, arduinosetup gives me only three options to connect: USB, Bluetooth and Wifi.
I need to use ethernet, and not wifi (from my laptop to the router, wifi is OK but from the router to the Arduino ethernet is a must). Do you know if this is possible?
Or do I need to use the Simulink-Package in that case?
Thanks a lot!
Best, Andreas

Hi Andreas,
I understand that you would like to communicate to the board via an Ethernet Shield, and MATLAB Support Package is not giving this option. The solution would be to download and install the Simulink Support Package. Upon successful installation, in the Simulink Library Browser, you would see blocks corresponding to communication between MATLAB and Arduino via Ethernet Shield in the form of TCP/IP, UPD, or ThingSpeak. The attached image show where the blocks would be found.
Thanks,
David

Thank you very much. This indeed seems to be the answer, although for me it is not satisfactory (at least, I have troubles with my Arduino Leonardo ETH with Simulink, but this of course is something I asked in another thread).
Thank you very much again.
I ALSO HAVE THIS PROBLEM. I CAN NOT RECEIVE THE SENSOR DATA SENT BY THE PROTOCOL TCP / IP. BUT I CAN SEE THE VALUES ON THE HTTP PAGES WITH THE SERVER'S ADDRESS. WHAT SHOULD BE THE DATA FORMAT FOR AN MPU6050 SENSOR?
