Introduction to Matlab Simulink and Arduino

We can use MATLAB to communicate with an Arduino board using installing the support package for Arduino in MATLAB. If you want to program an Arduino that can  be possible by using Simulink and support package for Arduino should be installed in order to use MATLAB Simulink to program our Arduino boards. The support package wills automatically generate the code from Simulink model that then runs on the arduino board. 

check the above video to know about what is video is series is about , what all you can learn from this video series. 

check the above Video know how to install the support package for Arduino for Matlab where you will be given a details about how to start and where to start, all the information need to get install the package successful has been shown in the above video. 

Set up MATLAB and Simulink support package for Arduino

Open MATLAB and click the Add-Ons drop down menu on the top right

Start Support Package Installer
Click on Get Hardware Support Packages in the drop down menu to start the installer. Select
'Install from Internet' as the source for installing the support package

Select Arduino from a list of support packages
Click Next to see a list of support packages and select Arduino from the list for MATLAB Support
Package and Arduino Due for the Simulink Support Package.

MathWorks Account
Click next and log in to your MathWorks account. If you don't have a MathWorks account, you can
create one during the install process

Continue and Complete the Installation
Accept the license agreement on the next screen and click Next through the following screens to
finish the installation for both MATLAB and Simulink Support Package for Arduino.
