Hi guys, I have an Arduino Uno board and I want to aquire a signal values from a potentiometer and plot it in realtime, I've found a code to do it as you can se below:
arduino;
line(nan, nan, 'color','blue');
i=0;
while 1
pot = readVoltage(arduino,'A1');
x=get(line, 'xData');
y=get(line, 'yData');
x=[x i];
y=[y pot];
set(line, 'xData', x, 'yData', y);
i=i+0.001;
pause (1);
end
The problem is that is gives some several errors when I run the program such as: "Failed to open serial port COM3 to communicate with Arduino board Uno. Make sure there is no other MATLAB arduino object for this board. For troubleshooting, see Arduino Hardware Troubleshooting."
"Invalid pin format. Pin number must be a scalar integer."
I hope someone can help me

arduino function creates a connection to the board each time you call it and only one connection to the board can exist at one time. You should change the code to something like this,
a = arduino;
line(nan,nan,...
...
while 1
pot = readVoltage(a, 'A1');
...
...
end
