- Write your code on MATLAB and import the function as a Simulink block. See how that is done here.
- Attach External Interrupt block to pins 2 and 3 to call an Interrupt Service Routine (ISR) function. The ISR will then perform bitwise comparison of the two inputs to increment/decrement the counts.
Read rotary encoder from Arduino Uno in Simulink

I can easily read the counts in Matlab (like this: https://de.mathworks.com/help/supportpkg/arduinoio/ug/control-rotary-encoder-knob.html), but not in Sumulink! Can someone tell me how it is the correct way to read the counts in real-time in Simulink?

I understand that you are trying to read the counts from a rotary encoder using Simulink. Although Simulink doesn't have a block to interface a rotary encoder at present, it can possibly be achieved in two ways:
The idea behind the second approach is to implement the rotaryEncoder function through existing Simulink blocks.

I’m using arduino Due to read incremental rotary encoder by simulink, there is no block in sinulink to do that.
I tried with external interrupt example in matlab 2020a but it is reading only in one direction and just increasing, so it should be readings in clockwise and counterclockwise.
Aslo I tried with encoder S-Function in Device Driver examples but also does not work.
Your help please .....

Hi, thanks for the encoder part.
Attached is a preliminary implementation of a PID Speed Controller for a DC motor with encoder.
The circuit is a low side FET to the pin 5 of the ATMEGA (PWM output) and pins 2 and 3 go to the encoders as input.
The PID parameters and scopes are tuneable.
