The MATLAB® environment for analysis provides the tools you need to acquire data and automate tasks. Within MATLAB and Simulink® you can control and acquire data from plug-in data acquisition boards, test instruments, Web cameras and frame grabbers, as well as send and receive messages over CAN buses.
Once you acquire data, you can interactively explore it and perform live visualization and data analysis. You can then build test systems, verify designs and concepts, and automate repetitive tasks. You can also deploy test applications built in MATLAB onto other computers.
