hi im a final year electrical student and im working on a autonomous sailbot which is supposed to give feedbacks and show properties such as wind direction speed etc. the problem is im supposed to use matlab which i suck at…i want to use arduino to program my sensors etc is the a way i could still use arduino to get feedbacks or a way to avoid the use of matlab?..will be glad to know thanks…
Congrats on reaching the final year!
You can use arduino with matlab using the Simulink plugin. more details here: https://www.mathworks.com/videos/using-arduino-with-matlab-and-simulink-100477.html
You can code the arduino to read sensors and pass the data to simulink using serial.communication.
Later on you can set up a wireless link to do the same (either using wifi connection to the matlab PC or relaying the data/commands with another arduino and cheap RF link like NRF24L01+).
Matlab is hard but it’s a great engineering tool to master.
If you need any further help let me know,
