National Instruments, the test and measurement industry has recently hosted NIDays 2013. Around 700 engineers, researchers and scientists were present at the event. Highlighting the impact of NI technology on solving engineering challenges in India, NI launched its latest version of LabVIEW system design software, LabVIEW 2013, that utilizes the most current and powerful technologies to make the design of complex systems more intuitive than ever.
LabVIEW 2013 facilitates the management, documentation and debugging of increasingly complex systems. LabVIEW 2013 adds support for the Linux Real-Time OS, giving developers access to dynamic, community-sourced libraries.
NI customers and Alliance Partners across a range of industries including health care, semiconductor, aerospace, automotive, life sciences, robotics and telecommunication participated in the event. The NI Application of the Year was awarded to the team from VSSC Trivandrum (ISRO), AERO department.
Addressing the conference, Dr. James Truchard, President, CEO and Co-founder NI shares, ‘’It is extremely rewarding to see our Indian customers solve some interesting challenges with NI tools. We’re seeing the idea of ubiquitous computing and real-time systems becoming center stage to the next industrial revolution. We feel like we’ve got the technology that can really help redefine how industry works to continue solving the world’s grand challenges. ‘’
Victor Mieres, Vice President, Emerging Markets, Asia/Rest of World, says, ‘’NI leads the revolution in the instrumentation field with a software-defined approach to building systems. Being a global organization, NI has some region specific programs including Planet NI. The mission of Planet NI is to empower engineers in emerging countries to achieve sustainable prosperity by providing increased access to NI technology.”
Jayaram Pillai, Managing Director, NI (India, Russia and Arabia) informs, “NIDays 2013 has brought together LabVIEW developers from all over India to share best practices. The annual Graphical System Design Achievement Awards aims to highlight efforts by engineers, scientists and researchers for their innovative test, measurement and embedded control applications. With the large pool of knowledge that we have in India, NI’s open platform provides an opportunity to quickly bring ideas to reality and, through the LabVIEW Tools Network, gain market access around the world. “
