Connecting to the Cloud

Connecting to MathWorks Cloud provides access to a MATLAB session wherever you have Internet access from your mobile device. You can perform simple calculations and prototyping, or run uploaded files.

You are provided 500 MB of cloud storage for your MATLAB files and data. The figures you create and the variables in your workspace persist across sessions, so you can resume work when you next log in.

Getting Started

To connect to MathWorks Cloud from MATLAB Mobile, follow these steps.

  1. Verify that you have a MathWorks Account.
  2. Verify that you have a valid license associated with your account.
    • Go to License Center and check that your license is associated with a license.
    • If you do not have an associated license, click the Add License button and follow the directions.

      Note: To access the cloud, the license must be current on MathWorks Software Maintenance Service. You can verify the end date on the License Details tab of License Center. If maintenance has expired, contact sales.

  3. On your mobile device, start MATLAB Mobile and tap Connect to MathWorks Cloud.
    • Enter your MathWorks Account email address and password.
    • Create a User ID following on-screen instructions.
  4. Once you create your User ID, you can access cloud storage on MathWorks Cloud.

    To manage your files, go to the cloud storage page from your desktop.

    Note: Uploads from mobile devices are not supported.

Connecting to Your Computer

If you have MATLAB installed on your work or home computer, MATLAB Mobile provides remote access to your scripts, files, data, and add-on products. The figures you created on your desktop will also be available on your iOS or Android device.

Connecting to a MATLAB session on your computer requires that you have the MATLAB Connector™ running on that session. Additionally, your mobile device requires network access to the computer you are connecting it to. Connectivity is platform agnostic, so you can connect to a MATLAB session running on your Windows®, Mac, or Linux® machine.

Getting Started

To connect to your computer from MATLAB Mobile, follow these steps.

Note: For versions R2013a and later, you can skip step 1.

  1. Download and install MATLAB Connector on your computer.

    • Extract the contents of the zip file.
    • Start MATLAB.
    • In MATLAB, navigate to the folder that contains the downloaded files.
    • Run >> install_connector
  2. Start the connector on your computer.

    • In MATLAB, run >> connector on.
    • When prompted, enter a password that contains at least five characters (letters or numbers only). MATLAB stores your connector password for future sessions.
  3. Set up the connection on your mobile device.

    • Tap Settings.
    • Type either the DNS name or IP address of your computer.
    • Type the password that you specified for the connector.
    • Tap Connect.
