Connect to a ADXL335
10 views (last 30 days)
I am looking to connect a ADXL335 via the Arduino Uno microcontroller to MATLAB. I have downloaded the matlab support package (add-on). Within the support package list of functions is readAcceleration, also within the functions is a list of 3 accelerometer (mpu9250, lsm9ds1, mpu6050).
Having already purchased an ADXL335 i am hoping to use the readAcceleration function with my ADXL335. I have successfully connected the Aruino to MATLAB i now want to read the acceleration of the accelerometer. What MATLAB does not tell me is how to set up the ADXL335 so recive the acceleration readings.
If anyone can aswer whether the AXDL335 can be used with readAccleration?
If so how should the Arduino board be wired and what would the code look like?

Assuming one of the analog output pin on the sensor is connected to A4 on Arduino . Now voltage read needs to be converted to acceleration as mention in datasheet.
a = arduino;
I guess there should be some formula in the datasheet to make the conversion.
Hope this helps
