Hello, I am trying to implement something and for the final plot I need something like the one in the attachment below.
The blue dots represent randomly initialized Obstacles so something like
O = [10*randn(1,10*N); 10*randn(1,10*N)];
Where N is the number of obstacles. So N can be like 50 or something. The red dots represent moving agents for which I have some predefined equations and its being run through ode45 and I am getting a matrix of 2 X 64, where each row 1 correpsonds to x position and row 2 to Y position.

hello
do you mean to plot all obstacles and agents in one plot , or do you split the data in multiple plots.
if you need a simple plot example see below. there are plenty of possibilities to make a nicer plot - see File Exchange
% obstacles
N = 50;
obstacles = [10*randn(1,10*N); 10*randn(1,10*N)];% example
% agents : size 2 X 64
agents = 3*[randn(2,64)]; % example
% basic plot
figure(1)
plot(obstacles(1,:),obstacles(2,:),'*b',agents(1,:),agents(2,:),'+r');grid on
title('Basic plot');
xlabel(' x coordinates');
ylabel(' y coordinates');

I want to plot all the obstacles and agents together. Something quite similar in the figure. But I want it to be a live view, that is observe how ode45 is updating the position in real time. Also the number of agents are 6 so there are 6 columns in total for each agent and number of rows are dependent on ode45

You can start here
N = 50;
O = 10*randn(2,10*N);
tiledlayout(2,5);
for i = 1:10
ax = nexttile;
X = 10*randn(2,64); % generate some X values
plot(ax,O(1,:),O(2,:),'bd',X(1,:),X(2,:),'r*','MarkerFaceColor','b','MarkerSize',3);
grid on;
end

For some reason Tiledlayout gives me an error in MATLAB. Though it works in online version of matlab. I think my version is 2019a
Undefined function or variable 'tiledlayout'

Can replace tiledlayout with subplot
N = 50;
O = 10*randn(2,10*N);
for i = 1:10
ax = subplot(2,5,i);
X = 10*randn(2,64); % generate some X values
plot(ax,O(1,:),O(2,:),'bd',X(1,:),X(2,:),'r*','MarkerFaceColor','b','MarkerSize',3);
grid on;
end
For live update you can do something like this
N = 50;
O = 10*randn(2,10*N);
X = 10*randn(2,64); % generate some X values
p = plot(O(1,:),O(2,:),'bd',X(1,:),X(2,:),'r*','MarkerFaceColor','b','MarkerSize',3);
grid on;
% update the plot
for i = 1:10
X = 10*randn(2,64); % generate some X values
set(p(2),'XData',X(1,:),'YData',X(2,:));
drawnow;
pause(1); % pause can be removed
end

Thanks for the help!
What if X is something like (12,64)?
Like its for 6 agents with one row for x axis and one row for y axis.
