Every day, students, educators, and academic researchers find new and exciting ways to use National Instruments products. These written and video case studies are a few examples of how graphical system design is being used to add hands-on learning and relevance to education while accelerating innovation and discovery in academic research.
"Teaching NI tools in our undergraduate courses is producing postgraduate research students who can deliver practical instrumentation, control, and communication solutions from day one. For them, the challenge is the research and not the tools that are needed to deliver it."
"The combination of LabVIEW and CompactRIO delivered the computational power required for our low-level control and kinematic calculations, as well as the determinism and reliability required for our safety-critical operational logic."
"The tacit learning gained from the new ‘Hands-on’ approach by the University of Leeds helps not only to reinforce the core subject matter, but it forces the students to learn to deal with success and failure whilst learning about teamwork in a technical context."
"Overall, NI products simplified the whole setup. We quickly brought together hardware and software from many manufacturers into an incredibly compact, powerful, and cost-effective tokamak."
"We are excited to have a single, accessible platform that we can use for every lab in the course with NI myRIO. It combines the out-of-the-box nature of NI myDAQ with the performance of industry-grade technology from NI."
“With the increasing complexity of components we produce and accelerated development times, we need engineers who can quickly build and reconfigure control and measurement systems.”
"We can use the LabVIEW platform to acquire data with NI myDAQ and use advanced algorithms with the LabVIEW MathScript RT Module to process data, all with one unified user interface. Using seamless hardware integration, we can run our processes on a host PC or deploy to an embedded target such as NI CompactRIO or NI Single-Board RIO."
"We used the configurability and high-speed streaming to disk capabilities of the vector signal analyzer equipment to collect all available GNSS signals and expect it to work for future signals as well."
"CompactRIO offered a rugged, reliable, stand-alone platform, enabling our team to conduct prolonged testing, which would not have been possible on a traditional computer."
"When engineers and scientists want to incorporate a new idea into clinical testing as quickly as possible, they need an easy-to-use programming language that gives them the best results in the least amount of time and LabVIEW is well-suited for this purpose."
