NI LabVIEW is widely recognized as a standard software tool in engineering education. LabVIEW Robotics Libraries expand the advantages of a Graphical System Design approach to Applied Robotics.
Students make their way from basic robot movements to various industrial experiences starting from 3D factory simulation and ending up with real-world applications. More than 800 robot models from 17 leading suppliers are at your disposal in realistic 3D simulation from Visual Components. You can control anthropomorphic, SCARA or parallel robots with either the free Visual Components LabVIEW Robotics Libraries, or by targeting a particular model with the brand specific library from the supported list. In the latter case you will be able to develop your robot application in 3D simulation, teach, plan a pass, and deploy software to real-world robot setup just by IP address change.
Use of 3D simulation minimizes safety issues at the early stage of robotics evaluation, increases the models available for review, introduces a wide range of industrial application areas, and allows easy access to real-world experience with minimal hardware purchase and maintenance cost.
