Traveling to universities and colleges across the United States and Canada, the LabVIEW Campus Tour showcases the latest technologies for educators, researchers, and students. Through live product demonstrations, learn how you can take advantage of NI's industry-standard tools to accelerate your research as well as deliver complete hands-on teaching solutions for your students to "do engineering." This tour also inspires students to do engineering by giving them an opportunity to explore a variety of design projects programmed with LabVIEW system design software, which helps students create working applications within hours instead of weeks or even months.
Visit the Campus Tour bus to learn how you can accelerate innovation and discovery in your research and prepare your students with an engaging, real-world learning experience in the classroom.
Explore the variety of platforms educators can use to give students hands-on experience with sensors, measurements, and instrumentation concepts. Using NI myDAQ and the myQuake miniSystem, see how students can complete hands-on exercises to measure and analyze structural design by recreating earthquake and seismic activity.
Discover how students can build expertise through practical applications for designing, prototyping, and testing electrical circuits. With the NI Educational Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Suite (NI ELVIS), LabVIEW, and NI Multisim, you can teach power electronics concepts like a single-phase H-bridge inverter.
Learn how you can help students grasp the classic pendulum control problem with the inverted pendulum and self-erecting inverted pendulum. Using LabVIEW, NI CompactRIO, and the Quanser Rotary Inverted Pendulum experiment, students can quickly design, simulate, and implement a variety of real-time controllers to balance and swing up a pendulum.
Examine a hands-on RF and communications teaching and research platform featuring NI USRP™ (Universal Software Radio Peripheral) hardware and LabVIEW software for designing, hardware prototyping, and implementation. See how you can experiment with practical applications of real-world signals behind the RF and communications theory presented in the classroom.
See how PXI RF instruments can be used to extract power amplifier behavioral models of nonlinear RF devices for use in AWR Microwave Office design software.
Discover how the PXI platform with SC Express modules can make any test from static strain to impact and vibration possible anywhere regardless of channel count or location.
Explore how you can implement FPGA-based power electronics control systems using a complete toolchain from design to test with LabVIEW, NI Multisim, and the NI Single-Board RIO General Purpose Inverter Controller (GPIC).
Develop control algorithms to improve the performance of a vehicle using CompactRIO and the Quanser Active Suspension plant. Investigate, design, and optimize the ride comfort, suspension travel, and road handling by controlling the vertical movement of the vehicle using an actively controlled actuator placed on the suspension axis.
Learn how wireless measurement devices can provide test and monitoring systems with increased flexibility and lower costs. Explore how different wireless technologies can meet a variety of remote application challenges where a cabled solution may be impractical or impossible.
Get inspired for your next class project by seeing examples of student design projects and robots programmed in LabVIEW. This system design software helps you build working applications in hours instead of weeks or even months.
