You need the right toolboxes, or you have to do HORRIBLE and unspeakable things with S-Functions.  I strongly suggest ignoring S-Functions like a plague of rats.

With the serial communications toolbox, though, everything is as simple as setting up the ports and making sure the robot knows how to read your stuff.  So once you get that, you can probably do it easy as pie.

HI,

How to use this serial communication in mat lab, please suggest me some basic working of it!

You have to ask specific questions.  I'm not capable of writing a tutorial for that toolbox.  I suggest looking at the MATLAB documentation and making 100% sure you know what your project needs -- does it even NEED the serial communications toolbox?

We can probably help you with questions like "I tried function X but it says my inputs are of the wrong type.  The inputs I give it are Y.  What's wrong?"  We can't really help with "tell me how to use the entire toolbox" :-)

OK, Is there any Need of uc between Mat lab serial communication to control device, say H-BRIDGES??

Yes, as far as I know.  The toolbox (now, evidently, called the "instrument control toolbox") only does RS232 (UART) and things like that.  So you have to send the command from MATLAB to the uC, then the uC deals with the lower level stuff.  I'm not too sure if MATLAB has a toolbox that can directly interface with PWM, but I doubt that it does.
