Gadgeteer spider controlled by Matlab via Ethernet module?


#1

Guys I need your opinion, is it possible to control the spider gadgeteer from PC Matlab?
Sounds complicated, any tutorials about the subject?


#2

Yes.

In the past, I did an embedded project which gathered data, and sent it to a PC where it was processed by Matlab, and the results returned. We used an IP/TCP connection.

For further information, I suggest you check the Matlab documentation. http://www.mathworks.com/products/instrument/supported/tcp-ip.html


#3

Can you share part of your project with me so I would learn?


#4

you could also use serial http://www.mathworks.com/help/matlab/matlab_external/getting-started-with-serial-i-o.html and https://www.ghielectronics.com/catalog/product/287

@ Jeff - I don’t poses that module, this is why I have to do it using the Ethernet module.


#6

I only did the embedded side. Someone else did the Matlab side. On the embedded side, I used standard .NET sockets. Check the CodeShare for examples.

The Matlib documentation I referenced I believe had a link to sample code.


#7

I can’t imagine how to begin at the embedded code =\

I suggest you go to the Support section of the forum and looks for documents and tutorials.
