LabView 6i harnesses Internet power

03/07/2001



Austin, Tex. -LabView 6 i brings Internet-ready capabilities, such as exchanging control applications via the new LabView Player browser plug-in (free from NI); publishing data on the web; and eases data sharing worldwide. It takes fewer steps to build applications than in previous versions. Single-point data acquisition rates are 4.7 times faster. New functions include data acquisition and instrument control, image acquisition and motion control libraries, 3-D user interface, and graphics. National Instruments www.ni.com

Added Information
LabView 6 i broke new frontiers in taking advantage of Internet technologies for measurement and automation-and helped in the frontiers of talking to animals! With the new features in LabView 6 i , researchers at the Fauna Communications Research Institute are learning how to talk to elephants to prevent village stampedes. With the new waveform datatype and array handling functions in LabView 6 i , MicroCraft Corp., a National Instruments Select Integrator, built a LabView-based portable sound analysis laboratory for the nonprofit institute dedicated to the study of animal communication.

Researchers use LabView and data acquisition hardware to record animal sounds, analyze them, and determine a pattern of communication. This type of research contributes extensively to our knowledge of a given animal and may help with its continued conservation and protection. In addition, MicroCraft Corp. can use the Internet capabilities of LabView to publish live data from another continent through a wireless Internet link.
