Ambient Temperature Sensor

Measure ambient temperature in degree Celsius

  • Ambient Temperature Sensor block

Simulink Support Package for Android Devices / Sensors


Use the Ambient Temperature Sensor block to measure ambient temperature in degree Celsius from the temperature sensor on the Android® device.


During simulation with no hardware connected, this block does nothing. For more information, see Block Produces Zeros or Does Nothing in Simulation.

The block outputs the data read from the temperature sensor of the device.

Data Types: single


expand all

Specify a discrete time interval, in seconds, at which the block reads the temperature sensor of the device and outputs the data.


Smaller values for Sample time require the processor to complete the same number of instructions in less time, which can cause task overruns.
