In this episode of the VI Shots LabVIEW podcast I chat with Sam Kristoff and Ben James from National Instruments. Sam was responsible for most of the development in the LabVIEW interface for Arduino toolkit that was released a few weeks ago.
I mention in the interview that I was having problems getting LabVIEW to communicate with the arduino under Mac OS. Since then I have resolved my issue. It turns out I was using the wrong port. The VISA serial port listings under Mac are not very descriptive and what I thought was the USB port was actually the Bluetooth.
I’ve recorded a detailed video tutorial on how to get started with the toolkit which you can find here.
Here are links to items mentioned in this podcast episode:
- Community Support home for the LabVIEW Interface for Arduino
- Download the toolkit from the LabVIEW Tools Network
- Cool Projects built with the toolkit on the NI Arduino Blog
