Arduino Explorer

Configure and control Arduino

Since R2021b

Add-On Required: This feature requires the MATLAB Support Package for Arduino Hardware add-on.


Use the Arduino® Explorer to interactively set up an Arduino board, read, write, and analyze data from the board, and generate code.

Using this app, you can:

  • Set up the Arduino board

  • Connect to an Arduino board over USB, Bluetooth®, and Wi-Fi®

  • Configure, read from, and write to the Arduino pins

  • Interface with I2C, SPI, and Serial Communication devices, and configure the interfaces to transfer and decode data

  • Visualize data from Arduino pins using Plot and Log panels

  • Record and save data from Arduino pins to the MATLAB® workspace

  • Analyze the recorded data

  • Generate equivalent MATLAB code

Open the Arduino Explorer App

  • MATLAB Toolstrip: On the Apps tab, under Test and Measurement, click the app.

  • MATLAB command prompt: Enter arduinoExplorer.
