Introduction: Getting Started With LabVIEW and Arduino(Complete Tutorials)

About: I make hobbyist stuffs and play with electronics follow me to know more

If you are a new user for electronics and want to create projects like a pro , Here's the tutorial for you.

This is not a single tutorial, This is going to followed by series of tutorials to complete a crash course on How to use LabVIEW to acquire different data's like analog and digital data's from external devices and control different devices from LabVIEW. For this complete series of tutorial I used Seeedstudio's Lotus Kit which is really easy to use for a novice user and those who don't like to get crappy with more wires and getting confused with which wires goes into which pin of Arduino.

Complete the Video tutorials and Make great Projects using these simple ideas.

The above Video explains How to get started with LabVIEW and What are the necessary software to install to get started with.

Step 1: Steps to Follow If You Are Not Watching the Video.

Firstly Install LabVIEW and NI-VISA for LabVIEW

Secondly Install VIPM for LabVIEW and open VIPM and search For MakerHub and install Makerhub LINX ToolKIT

Once everything installed successfully, Connect your Lotus kit your PC or Laptop

Open LabVIEW and Goto => Tools => Makerhub => LINX => ?LINX firmware wizard appears

Choose Arduino Uno from the devices and upload the Firmware to the Arduino and Finish the Process.

Create New VI in LabVIEW and check whether your Lotus kit is communicating with LabVIEW with the below block diagram for LabVIEW.
