Light Animations Using Arduino and MATLAB

Light animations are visually appealing and hence widely used for advertising purposes. In this project, we present a MATLAB-based graphical user interface (GUI) approach to control the glowing pattern of a number of light-emitting diodes (LEDs). Use of GUI is advantageous since the user can control illumination patterns while performing other tasks in the PC. This project creates five different lighting pa ...
