Hardware Support

Capabilities and Features

Simulink Support Package for Android™ Devices lets you program and run algorithms on Android smartphones and tablets. The support package includes a library of Simulink blocks for accessing the device's sensors, capturing and playing audio and video, creating UI widgets and communicating with other devices through a network interface.

You can design signal or image processing algorithms and applications for Android devices from Simulink. You can monitor and fine-tune the application using the sensors of your smartphone or tablet. Then you can deploy the finished application to your Android hardware with the click of a button.

The support package includes:

  • Library of Simulink blocks that program your Android device I/O, including inputs such as accelerometers, gyroscopes, magnetic field, ambient temperature, camera, location (GPS), humidity, light, pressure; and outputs to the device display and speaker
  • Interactive parameter tuning of outputs and signal monitoring of sensor inputs for applications running on your Android smartphone or tablet
  • ThingSpeak read and write blocks to send and receive data between the mobile device and ThingSpeak
  • Data logging from sensors and signals into MAT files saved on the Android device
  • Model deployment on a mobile app for standalone operation on the device. The app can include touchscreen widgets, such as sliders, buttons, scopes, text, and data displays, and communicate to other hardware via TCP/IP, UDP, and Bluetooth®
  • Generation of Android Studio compatible projects
