Connections to EV3 Hardware

When you use MATLAB® to interact with the EV3 hardware, you rely on several types of connections:

  • Flat black connectors that attach sensors and motors to the EV3 brick.

  • A single USB, wireless network, or Bluetooth® communication channel between the host computer and the EV3 brick.

  • A single legoev3 object, which connects the MATLAB software to the EV3 brick. You can use this object to interact with EV3 peripherals and to create sensor and motor objects.

  • One or more colorSensor, gyroSensor, irSensor, motor, sonicSensor, and touchSensor objects, which you can use to control and get data from sensors and motors.
