I have 3 sensors that output 50 readings per sec through an xml file on http. I can use webread to import the file and a parser to convert text to numbers but then how can I use this as a polling method to import the data in Simulink? Should I convert my input to Simulink.Timeseries? What else? My main problem is that I don't know how to synchronise web readings and Simulink inputs...
Thank you for your help!

One of the ways to import XML data is to create a Level-2 MATLAB S-Function block that can read/parse an XML file. Refer to the following page that has a detailed answer and example: https://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/answers/100555-how-can-i-create-a-simulink-block-that-reads-from-an-xml-file-that-contains-initial-state-conditions
