What Is NI ELVIS?

The NI Engineering Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Suite (NI ELVIS) Engineering Lab Workstation provides a project-based learning experience using online measurements and practical, embedded design.

Teach Students How to Innovate

Engineering students must see the concepts they are taught in the context of real systems to fully understand them. They must explore fundamental topics used in engineering systems, while working in teams, and apply them in practical designs quickly and effectively. With NI ELVIS, unite software, hardware, instrumentation, and control in a collaborative environment to prepare the next generation of engineers.
