Iam a LabVIEW application developer.I work a lot with LabVIEW.So,I just wanted to share my notings about LabVIEW,developed by National Instruments,US.
LabVIEW is an abbreviation for Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Experimental Work Bench.It is a graphical programming Language.So,you do not have to type in to code the logic.Its a different way of coding all together compared to traditional programming languages like C,C# ,Java or Matlab.I have seen Microsoft Robotic studio to be something similar to LabVIEW in terms of programming paradigm.And Dasylab is another such programming language.
Fine,so where is LabVIEW used.LabVIEW started off primarily for programming for PC based data acquisition and control applications.Now,it enables its primary task and even more.LabVIEW coding can be done for data/signal acquisition and control on desktop computers,laptops,embedded platforms and even on mobiles.On mobiles it is restricted to Windows OS.Iam waiting to see LabVIEW for Android platform.In fact LabVIEW can help perform embedded application development for 32 bit microcontrollers.
The list of domains it has expanded include image acquisition and processing (there are some beautiful applications of separating items based on sizes in a factory),signal processing,simulation,3 D visualization and a lot more.
Well,wait a sec.Its a sunday evening.I will continue with this series of blogs on LabVIEW.
By the way,feel free to post your queries,questions,any findings,know-how and points.I will happy to answer to my knowledge (a learning mind is always young).
Have a nice time.
