We hope you had a nice holiday! Our team came across quite a few holiday-inspired applications right before Christmas, like this unique student project that combines NI tools, a Santa robot, and some sweet dance moves.
Weber State University professor Julie McCulley tasked her electronics engineering students with integrating multiple NI myDAQ units into a single project. The goal was to see how NI myDAQ could be used as a teaching and testing device for several electronics engineering technology (EET) courses at Weber State University.
The students used LabVIEW to program the entire project from reading media files to controlling the digital outputs on the NI myDAQ for the lights. They were able to use NI myDAQ as a control and test instrument, which made development and debugging for the project very fast.
