I am trying to read the distance data of a VL53L0X sensor in simulink (I2C).
I successfully got to read the data in the workspace with the Adafruit library ( However, I need to work in simulink because I want to do a PID and PWM to control a servo.
what is the best way to get the sensor data in simulink?
I thought to take the data from the workspace to simulink with the block 'from workspace', but I realized that I can not connect to the arduino board from the workspace of matlab and simulink at the same time.
I am using R2017a
Thank you in advance!

@Kieran Daw: Please remember that UPPERCASE means shouting in the forum. Calm down and ask a specific question. What is a "successful read"? What have you tried so far and what is your problem?

I would recommend creating your own block using the techniques described in this video -

If you end up creating your own block, I would like to request you to contribute the files to MATLAB File Exchange so that others can benefit from your work.
