This add-on is supported for MATLAB R2016a - R2018b.

This add-on library extends MATLAB Support Package for Arduino Hardware to read from capacitive sensors built with two Arduino pins, a resistor, and a piece of foil. With this add-on, you can estimate the proximity or touch by reading the capacitance value measured in arbitrary units.

Sample usage:
-------------------
% Create arduino object with the add-on library
a = arduino('COM38', 'Uno', 'Libraries', 'PaulStoffregen/CapacitiveSensor');
% Create capacitive sensor object
sensor = addon(a, 'PaulStoffregen/CapacitiveSensor', 'D9', 'D2');
% Obtain sensed capacitance
cap = readCapacitance(sensor, 30);

It includes documentation and an example that demonstrates the use with the capacitive sensor to detect touch or proximity.

Important: Before using this add-on library in MATLAB, you need to install the CapacitiveSensor Arduino library. Here are the instructions:
1. Download the zip file from https://github.com/PaulStoffregen/CapacitiveSensor/archive/0.5.1.zip
2. Unpackage the zip into local directory and rename the folder to ‘CapacitiveSensor’.
3. Move the ‘CapacitiveSensor’ folder into the "libraries" folder inside your Arduino sketchbook folder:
On Windows, the default path is "My Documents\Arduino\libraries\"
On Mac, the default path is "~/Documents/Arduino/libraries/"
On Linux, the default path is "/home/<username>/Arduino/libraries"

Troubleshooting tips:
1. After installing this add-on library and the required Arduino library, type "listArduinoLibraries" in MATLAB to see if the add-on is properly installed.
2. Wire up the Arduino board and the add-on device properly before creating the object to avoid a connection error in MATLAB.
3. Refer to the documentation for details on usage and syntax. It can be found under Supplemental Software in the product documentation.
