Build interactive and fun learning projects with Arduino using LabVIEW
This book covers several projects that you can build using LabVIEW and Arduino. You will learn how to use LabVIEW to control your Arduino projects simply by dragging and dropping blocks in LabVIEW.
The book starts with some basic projects that you will create in order to learn how to interface LabVIEW and Arduino. For example, you will learn how to control a motor from the LabVIEW interface. Then, the book dives into more complex projects, such as building a weather measurement station, making a simple alarm system, and controlling a mobile robot wirelessly via LabVIEW.
Going through the projects of this book will allow you to automate your Arduino projects without writing a single line of code, therefore creating complex projects in little time.
