To start off, I'll let you know that I have extremely minimal experience with both Matlab and Arduino. This is the first project I've used either, and am still trying to grasp a basic understanding of how the data would be captured and transmitted by Matlab.
I am using a webcam to analyze the position of an object, and based on the data from Matlab, I want Arduino to control a motor's speed and direction. I found a great tutorial for the type of motor I'm using (a stepper bipolar motor) so all I need to be passed from Matlab to Arduino is one integer.
Is this going to be easy? A point in the direction of a tutorial on this subject would be a great starting point for me.
