Introduction to Control Design and Simulation in 3 Hours using LabVIEW
This 3 hour short course is designed as an instructor-led and self study introduction to the control design process. This includes modeling, designing, simulating, and deploying a controller using
LabVIEW and the LabVIEW Control Design and Simulation Module. The course includes a presentation, manual, exercises, and solutions. Visit the website...
Getting Started Guide for the Robotics Prototyping Kit
This getting started guide walks you through setting up a mobile robot using the NI LabVIEW Robotics Starter Kit. The prototype uses LabVIEW 2009 and the LabVIEW Real-Time and LabVIEW
FPGA modules to program an NI sbRIO-9631 device. Use this document to learn how to create a mobile robot that scans for objects in its path and redirects itself to avoid them. Visit the website...
