The problem of accuracy increase of MATLAB and Arduino interaction when cyber-physical systems designing by making changes into the implementation of the standard protocol of Arduino has been solved. It has been proposed to carry out the analog-digital conversion of all
required analog pins with further sequential data transmission to MATLAB when requesting to read data from the first analog pin of Arduino. It allows improving control quality of dynamic processes by reducing the uncertainty range of a high-speed multi-dimensional control system state. In addition, it has been offered to perform the preprocessing of sensors data by means of Arduino that increases the flexibility of cyberphysical systems due to the possibility of the hardware changing without MATLAB software and protocol changing. A formal description of MATLAB and Arduino interaction allows realizing the communications protocol using wireless interfaces as well as microprocessor units and platforms, which are not compatible with Arduino.
