Hi all,
I have posted this on the arduino forum as well.
I am doing a rather interesting project whereby I will control a scale model wheel chair by using brain waves. I am analyzing these brainwaves in MATLAB and based on what the analysis output is, I need to send a command from MATLAB through Bluetooth to an Arduino board in order to control servo motors.
Now I have been mostly reading up on BLUESMiRF and the HC-05 modules, but I am open to suggestion.
My main concerns are whether the bluetooth modules will be able to receive the data from MATLAB. I do not have much experience at Arduino at all so any help would be greatly appreciated.
I would like to make sure I buy the correct module that will be able to link with MATLAB. Is it possible for someone to advise me of which modules would work?

New enough versions of MATLAB have a bluetooth Simulink module.

First, to make sure we understand, let's confirm what you are trying to accomplish:
  1. Gathering sensor data on your host computer
  2. Using MATLAB to process the sensor data and create appropriate control outputs
  3. Using a wireless channel to send the control data to Arduino
  4. Using Arduino to control some type of actuator, such as a servo motor
