007 VISP Interview with the Developer of the LabVIEW Interface for Arduino


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:

    I’m having trouble connecting two Arduinos to my LabVIEW VI. One is on Com 4 and the other is on com 6. This is for an underwater ROV that we are building to compete at the MATE Competition. Can someone please help? Thanks
