Hi everyone,

I am building a 3D scanner with a laser distance sensor to produce a point cloud representation of the surrounding area. I'll be using an Arduino.
Mathlab can definitely produce a point cloud representation. But I am not sure I can send the raw data to thingspeak at once.
My idea was to collect all the data from the surrounding area and then send it at once to thingspeak. I would be updating the data every minute.
Then I would use Mathlab to convert the raw data in a 3D point representation.
Could I do that with thingspeak?

Any idea would be much appreciated.

Do you have an Arduino with network connectivity either onboard or with a shield? Note that maximum update rate to ThingSpeak is 1/15sec. And you'll need to configure the myChannelNumber and myWriteAPIKey variables for your ThingSpeak channel (see https://theessayservice.org).
