Building iPhone Applications for Simple Data Monitoring

Monday, July 18, 2011

Who doesn’t love a sweet, new app? Community member BROhan has developed code that allows you to build a native iPhone application for simple data monitoring. The iPhone app communicates with a measurement application,which performs your measurement and publishes the latest data value to a variable, and LabVIEW Web Services, whichretrieves the latest data value in the variable and returns it. Your iPhone then periodically calls the web service and plots the latest data value.

Your measurement application constantly runs in parallel with your web service VI. When the web service VI is called by the iPhone app, it reads the value from the shared variable, generates an XML string, writes an HTTP response, and sends the data back to the iPhone.
