I am using Arduino Uno to read the Speed of my motor using simulink Encode block, But simulink says Uno board can not be used for Encoder block. Can somebody please tell me which Arduino Board can be used to read the speed from encoder block?

Hi Aakash,
Which release of MATLAB are you using?
Till R2021a, the encoder block supports only encoders on motor carrier shield which is specifically for MKR boards and Nano 33 IoT board.
Supported shields:
In R2021b, support for rotary encoder was added which can be used for all encoders on all arduino boards.

Hi Nagaraj,
From the error it looks like you are using encoder block from the Motor carrier library which is supported only on the boards mentioned in the error.
Please use the following block from arduino sensors library
Hope this helps!

I have used Arduino due, mkr with motor driver shield and nano board for this purpose.
Due would be the best choice because of high clock frequency, which can read very very high speed also.
