Systems Design NI ELVIS Mechatronics Device—The Quanser Mechatronics Systems Board for NI ELVIS III is an add-on application board for the NI Engineering Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Suite III (NI ELVIS III). This device offers accurate timing and control of FPGA-based reconfigurable I/O. Using the Quanser Mechatronics Systems Board for NI ELVIS III, students investigate and implement various sub-components of a mechatronic system from PWM generation, manipulator control and kinematics, to image processing, and state machines. With the manipulator-mounted camera, customizable task space image overlays, and modifiable LabVIEW controllers, the device can be easily adapted to a wide range of mechatronics application areas such as line following and autonomous navigation.
