From autonomous vehicles to robotic arms, NI LabVIEW provides a standard hardware and software development platform for designing your robotic control system. The LabVIEW Robotics Module plugs into the LabVIEW development environment and delivers built-in connectivity to sensors and actuators, foundational algorithms for intelligent operation and robust perception, and motion functions for making your robot or vehicle move.
From low-cost infrared sensors to high-definition light detection and ranging (LIDAR) sensors, LabVIEW Robotics gives you the power to quickly retrieve sensor data so you can focus on implementing higher-level intelligence and control.
With new palettes for path planning, navigation, and obstacle avoidance, you can add autonomy to your robot without reinventing the wheel. This open API helps you modify or customize the algorithms for your specific application.
LabVIEW abstracts communication with hardware and provides access to the same analysis, mathematics, and autonomy libraries on the desktop, as well as embedded real-time and FPGA-based targets.
