Use MATLAB® and Simulink® with ThingSpeak™, an Internet of Things data collection platform. ThingSpeak can be used to collect, analyze, and act on data sent from devices such as Raspberry Pi™ and Arduino®. To illustrate this, a car counter is implemented overlooking a busy highway using a Raspberry Pi 2 and webcam. Simulink is used to deploy the car-counting algorithm on the Raspberry Pi, which is connected to ThingSpeak. The traffic can be analyzed offline with MATLAB, or online using ThingSpeak and its built-in MATLAB analysis and visualizations apps.
