We are planning to create a small standalone application (using MATLAB compiler) that performs some calculations and displays/updates plots in real-time (e.g. once every second). The data is generated by C++ code, which in turn receives measurements and preprocesses it.
Can I use the "MATLAB Engine API for C++" for this case?
I assume that this is not possible because the C++ application would need to interface the MATLAB Runtime. (The page "MATLAB Engine API for C" says: "Engine applications require an installed version of MATLAB; you cannot run the MATLAB engine on a machine that only has the MATLAB Runtime.")
Hence, I guess we need to wrap our C++ code using MEX and call it from the compiled standalone application. Is this correct or is there a better way?
