Robotics Webinar

Robots mean many things to many people, and National Instruments offers intuitive and productive design tools for everything from designing autonomous vehicles to teaching robotics design principals. Join us for this two-part webinar series to explore how the NI LabVIEW graphical programming language makes it easy to program complex robotics applications by providing a high level of abstraction for sensor communication, obstacle avoidance, path planning, kinematics, and more.

Session 1
LabVIEW and RIO – An integrated platform for teaching & research in robotics

Robotics is one of the fastest-growing and most complex engineering fields. Almost every type of robot operates in a different environment and has a different behavior or mission. Integrating different sensors and actuators, implementing autonomy, and deploying deterministic control algorithms to embedded hardware often pose challenges in robotics. In this session, we will explore how National instruments’ robotics platform can be used as a hands-on tool for learning system design concepts & also for prototyping real world robotic systems. Using practical examples, we will learn how to build robots that can Sense, Think and Act in the world around them.

Session 2
Robotics – Vision & Motion integration

Most modern industrial robots & smarter robots often interact with their environment through measurements and vision. These applications demand flexile yet precise and tight integration between the vision and motion functions. In this session we will explore how NI’s integrated hardware and software platform can be used via graphical systems design approach to develop applications that include machine vision and incorporate robotic motion profiles.
