  2. Image processing in LabVIEW

    Image processing in LabVIEW

    The Image Processing VIs are a rudimentary set of image capture and analysis VIs that allow the user to grab images from a USB camera (using Chris Salzmann’s QuickTime VIs) and analyze them. These VIs can be used to determine color information, threshold, binary morphology, blob detection. They can read...

    LabVIEW examples: Advanced

    These examples demonstrate some advanced features in LabVIEW. Using a Sub VI This example shows a possible implementation of a sub VI.  Sub VI’s are essentially consolidations of other code into one icon. Multiple NXTs This example demonstrates how to use multiple NXTs. After specifying which NXTs to use, the...

    NXT-A-Sketch

    Just like its little red counterpart, the Etch-A-Sketch®, the NXT-A-Sketch lets you turn two knobs to draw your picture. However, rather than using a stylus and aluminum powder, the LEGO NXT model is entirely digital, making use of the Servo motors and the LCD display. Building To build the NXT-A-Sketch,...
