16 LabVIEW / RIO for Robotics Unified tools, productive and effective results Do-it-yourself Fragmented approach, ineffective results Finished 3rd place with just 10% funding of other teams

17 VECNA BEAR (Battlefield Extraction-Assist Robot) NI CompactRIO Controller (in-body) NI LabVIEW software design

18 Underwater Dredging System: Nexans Spider Application Level the Seabed Floor to lay a pipeline from the Orman-Lange Natural Gas Field to the UK. Develop HMI, remote-control interface, heave compensation and power controls Challenges 1000 meters below sea-level, strong currents, uneven terrain, constrained time and budget Key benefits Rapid development software across multiple computing platforms, rugged embedded platform "The LabVIEW platform has helped Nexans develop a system that is easy to maintain due to the consistent programming paradigm for both HMI and embedded control with CompactRIO, even in extreme conditions."

19 David Barrett, Ph.D. Director, SCOPE program at Olin College Former VP of Engineering, irobot Former Director, Walt Disney Imagineering Corp. Research Engineer, MIT AI Lab Technical Director, Draper Lab 9 patents in robotic systems I have spent 15 years looking for a good robotics software development environment, I have evaluated everything on the market and LabVIEW is clearly, hands-down the best.
