Thank you for you quick reply. By "new" and "legacy" packages I mean this
Now, from what I understand, if i create an arduino object using
a = arduino ('COM3')
I can manipulate the pins, therefore the circuit, and it would be like matlab runs the "main" and arduino is just peripheral (an extention).
On the other hand if I create a serial object using
a = serial ('COM3')
I would be able to read whatever the arduino print in its Serial Monitor but I won't be able to manipulate the i/o pins directly (I could to sent a command through the serial and then have the arduino do something when it receives that command). In this case I believe that the arduino is runing its code and matlab just observes.
I tried to implement both arduino and serial objects but I get an error saying that "COM 3 is in use by another object"
So, my questions are. 1) Am I right in my assumptions or have I misunderstood something 2) If I am right is there a way to observe the serial monitor by creating an arduino object
I would prefer to use Matlab code instead of simulink model.
Thank you in advance
