Director, Senior Engineering Program
Seeing the need for a widely supported software development platform for robotics, Dave introduced LabVIEW into his courses. Thanks to its flexibility, unique graphical programming approach, and accessibility, LabVIEW is helping Dave to bridge the gap between teaching robotics theory and giving students real-world design experience.
LabVIEW can be used for everything from designing autonomous vehicles to teaching robotics design principles. LabVIEW provides a high level of abstraction for sensor communication, obstacle avoidance, path planning, kinematics, steering, and more, to help robotics engineers and students quickly program.
Roboticists universally wanted a software development tool that could support the many disciplines associated with robotics design. Learn how NI responded to the needs of this growing application area.
You can use LabVIEW to develop simple to sophisticated measurement, test, and control systems with graphical icons and wires that resemble a flowchart. Through this intuitive development approach, you can get to your results faster and complete higher-quality projects in less time.
