Interfacing with Matlab to display signal strength

Hi all!

I am knew to the Arduino world!

Currently working on a RFID project and curious to see if measuring the (RSSI) received signal strength from tag to reader is feasible? If so, if displaying it via Matlab possible?

Better question would be if I can be pointed in the right direction to try to implement Arduino and Matlab display/plot relationship?

Trying to have the Arduino calculate the signal strength that the rc522 reader receives and display it via Matlab as a scatter plot or any type of plot.

Thanks in advance!


You should first determine whether you can get an RSSI value from the reader. If you are using passive RFID cards, they are either close enough to read, or they aren't. I can't imagine what you think that any RSSI value will tell you.
