Programming Arduino with LabVIEW pdf.
Programming Arduino with LabVIEW by Marco Schwartz, Oliver Manickum.
Arduino is a powerful electronics prototyping platform used by millions of people around the world to build amazing projects. Using Arduino, it is possible to easily connect sensors and physical objects to a microcontroller, without being an expert in electronics.
However, using Arduino still requires us to know how to write code in C/C++, which is not easy for everyone. This is where LabVIEW comes into play. LabVIEW is software used by many professionals and universities around the world, mainly to automate measurements without having to write a single line of code.
Thanks to a module called LINX, it is actually very easy to interface Arduino and LabVIEW. This means that we will be able to control Arduino projects without having to type a single line of code. The possibilities are endless, and in this book, we will focus on several exciting projects in order for you to discover the key features of the LabVIEW Arduino interface.
What this book covers:
Chapter 1, Welcome to LabVIEW and Arduino, introduces you to the Arduino platform and the LabVIEW software.
Chapter 2, Getting Started with the LabVIEW Interface for Arduino, shows you how to install and use the LabVIEW interface for Arduino via the LINX module.
Chapter 3, Controlling a Motor from LabVIEW, explains how to make your first real project with Arduino and LabVIEW by controlling a DC motor from LabVIEW.
Chapter 4, A Simple Weather Station with Arduino and LabVIEW, talks about how to automate measurements from several sensors that are connected to the Arduino platform.
Chapter 5, Making an XBee Smart Power Switch, shows you how to make our own do-it-yourself (DIY) version of a smart wireless power switch. We will make a device that can control electrical devices, measure their current consumption, and control the whole power switch from LabVIEW.
Chapter 6, A Wireless Alarm System with LabVIEW, helps you connect motion sensors to an Arduino board and monitor their state remotely via LabVIEW to create a simple alarm system.
Chapter 7, A Remotely Controlled Mobile Robot, teaches you how to use everything you learned so far to control a small mobile robot from LabVIEW. You will be able to wirelessly move the robot and also continuously measure the distance in front of the robot.
