Matlab mobile: data transfer without wifi connection

13 views (last 30 days)
I use the matlab app for masurements in locations where the acces to wifi is very limited and often not available. As for now the mobile phone will only uploade data when it is connected to the cloud. I need an option where i can connect my iPhone to a computer through a wire or a bluetouth connection to get the data from the phone to the computer. I previous versions this was an option but it is not in the new version. Is there a way where i can get data from the mobile device to a computer without connection to the internet.
Best regards
Jonas Vestermark

You can use this workaround for Android Devices without Internet-
  1. Log Sensor data in MATLAB Mobile
  2. Connect the mobile to laptop using USB and access its Internet Storage
  3. The sensor logs are stored in Internal Storage\Documents\MATLAB\SensorLogs
  4. Copy paste it to Internal Storage of Laptop
  5. Use readMobileSensorData to read the data or unzip as csv and read as a csv file on MATLAB Desktop
For iOS devices you can use a similar workflow. First two steps remain same for both Android and iOS devices
  1. Go to Finder and select your iOS device on the left side panel (Refer to the screenshot attached)
  2. Go to Files tab
  3. Select the dropdown accociated with MATLAB and you will find your sensor data log in the list
  4. Drag that to the location where you wish to save the file
  5. Last step remains same as as Android device

Hello. I'm following-up on this older request as the issue persists.
The described solution unfortunately does not work with a windows PC and iTunes as Matlab no longer show up in the "File Sharing" section of iTunes. The Finder is not available on a Windows PC.
