“The combination of NI LabVIEW Control Design and Simulation and NI hardware has accelerated the transition of both our students and researchers moving from abstract control concepts to realistic, interdisciplinary control engineering and implementation.”
– Dr. Wayne Book, Georgia Institute of Technology
National Instruments offers a full suite of tools for enhancing controls and mechatronics education. The NI LabVIEW graphical development environment allows students to quickly design, simulate, and implement a variety of real-time controllers. The LabVIEW environment supports multiple programming approaches, allowing students to use the most effective syntax – graphical, textual, or a combination – for their projects. Integration with industrial real-time hardware and control plants from education collaborators such as Quanser ensures that students have hands-on experience while interfacing with real-world I/O.
