Pressure Sensor

Measure ambient air pressure in hectopascals (hPa)

Add-On Required: This feature requires the Simulink Support Package for Android Devices add-on.

  • Pressure Sensor block

Simulink Support Package for Android Devices / Sensors


Use the Pressure Sensor block to measure atmospheric pressure in hectopascals (hPa) from the pressure sensor on the Android® device.


During simulation with no hardware connected, this block does nothing. For more information, see Block Produces Zeros or Does Nothing in Simulation.

The block outputs the atmospheric pressure data in hectopascals (hPa).

Data Types: single


expand all

Specify a discrete time interval, in seconds, at which the block reads the pressure sensor of the device and outputs the data.


Smaller values for Sample time require the processor to complete the same number of instructions in less time, which can cause task overruns.
