We install MATLAB Mobile on the phone. In its settings we enable logiing to MATLAB Cloud and activate any sensors we want to record. Then we launch the sensors.m script on command line of the MATLAB Mobile on the phone. Leave it running, do not lock the phone or minimize the app. Then we start the second script (plotsensors.m) on our PC, which has the same MATLAB Drive account enabled, change current folder to MATLAB Drive (where sensors.mat data file will be created) and launch plotsensors.m. The data from the phone is plotted on PC and updated every second or so. The speed of syncronisation depends on how frequently the data is sent to MATLAB Drive by the phone and synced to your PC.
