Controlling a Heart Simulator with CompactRIO and LabVIEW

Figure 1: 3D Simulator

"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."

- Dr. David Keeling, School of Mechanical Engineering, University of Leeds

The Challenge:
Developing a realistic, reliable, and reconfigurable testing environment to advance and improve a novel heart assist device without the need for animal testing.

The Solution:
Using NI CompactRIO to create a stand-alone hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing environment that combines a physical mechanical heart with a circulatory blood flow model to create an end solution that physically and hemodynamically replicates in-vivo models.
