Autonomous vehicles are gaining the interest of consumers, researchers, and car companies, all who wish to increase user safety. Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Autonomous Driving (AD) feature parking assist sensors, automatic braking systems, and even backup cameras to increase driver and passenger safety, as well as the safety of other vehicles and pedestrians. As these features are viewed by consumers as more critical, automotive companies will need better and faster testing solutions for these systems.
Why is National Instruments the global leader in automated test and measurement solutions? It’s because they continue to develop and produce flexible, reliable tools that are useful for a variety of industries. One such example is National Instruments’ SLSC platform. This product solution was the 2018 winner of an Engineering Impact Award in the Aerospace and Defense category.
On September 12, 2019, Breakthrough Central Texas, an Austin-based non-profit educational assistance organization, made a major announcement concerning National Instruments from the LBJ Presidential Library and Museum, at the University of Texas at Austin campus. With the assistance of NI, Breakthrough Central Texas unveiled The Breakthrough Challenge.
This is the fourth and final part of our National Instruments SCC blog series. This part will end with descriptions of Electromechanical accessories, Sensors Plug&Play Measurement Devices, Rack Mount Kits, and the SC-205x series.
This is part 3 of our National Instruments SCC blog series. This part will describe the SCC Panelettes, Signal Conditioning Enclosures, 5B Series, Signal Conditioning Accessories, and Digital Input Modules.
The full rollout of 5G will enable applications that were previously only found in science fiction. Remote options for medical treatments and monitoring patients, new automated factory processes, and even self-driving cars are possible with the speed, latency, and connectivity of 5G. The future as many have only dreamed is finally here.
This is part 2 of our National Instruments SCC blog series. This part will describe the SCC Analog Output Modules, Digital Input Modules, Digital Output Modules, Counter/Timer Modules, Relay Modules, and Feedthrough Modules.
On July 17, 2019, National Instruments announced it would be the sole provider of Copper Mountain Technologies’ VNAs that are now compatible with NI’s PXI platform. According to the Microwave Journal, “The relationship gives NI’s users access to metrology-grade VNAs while CMT expands the products it provides for manufacturing applications. Also, CMT will strengthen the company’s presence in the semiconductor, automotive, aerospace, defense, and education markets served by NI.”
This is the introduction to National Instruments SCC, which will be our next series of blog posts. NI SCC is a portable, modular signal conditioning system compatible with M Series, E Series, and certain B Series and portable multifunction DAQ devices. SCC models condition many types of analog input and digital I/O signals.
