NI showcases innovations that meet real-world engineering challenges for IoT & 5G

|October 20, 2016 0

BANGALORE, INDIA: At its annual conference on graphical system design NIDays this week in Bangalore, NI India showcased the newly added products to its list of existing tools aimed at accelerating the productivity of engineers and researchers working in the areas of IoT, 5G, industrial automation, etc. Some of these tools enable applications that previously seemed too ambitious because of their complexities.

The new range of products launched at the event includes, High-performance PXI instrumentation for processing and sensing at the edge; MIMO Application Framework which provides wireless researchers with a fully open reference solution to accelerate 5G prototyping; Early access technology platform for TSN which delivers mechanisms to create distributed, synchronized, hard real-time systems over standard Ethernet; NI Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) Simulator which helps drive down the cost of test for customers; Software-centric NI PXI Digital Pattern Instrument used by semiconductor characterization and production test engineers to drive down the cost of their tests and ensure product quality.

It also launched the latest version of its flagship product, LabVIEW 2016, with enhancements in acquiring, processing and managing data from remote data acquisition systems.


During the conference it hosted its annual technical application contest Engineering Impact Awards 2016 aimed at recognizing the most innovative projects based on NI software and hardware and announced the recipients of NIYantra Awards 2016 which recognizes the best graphical system design created by budding engineering students.

The Engineering Impact Awards this year had a total of 40 teams and the winners got a chance to participate in the Global Engineering Impact Awards held in Austin annually during NIWeek.

This year, Captronics won in the ‘Application of the Year’ and ‘NI Alliance Partner of the year‘ categories. They developed an application to determine the location of a bullet on a target system using NI cRIO. National Aerospace Laboratories won in the ‘Systems Category’ for their design and development of structural health monitoring system comprising of SyncVIEW, DiagnoseVIEW, QuickVIEW for aircraft composite structures. Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Hyderabad won in the ‘Academic Category’ for developing a closed loop control of three phase inverter voltage using NI LabVIEW FPGA and cRIO.

This year, NIYantra 2016 witnessed submissions from more than 950+ teams, out of which 18 teams made it to the finals. Sri Eshwar College of Engineering won the NIYantra 2016 awards for creating an innovative path detector designed for visually challenged. Teams from Vivekanand Education Society’s Institute Of Technology and K.J. Somaiya College of Engineering were the runners-up. The team from Kumaraguru College of Technology was also recognized for their efforts.

Jayaram Pillai, MD–IndRAA, National Instruments, said, “Over the last 18 years in India, we have built a strong ecosystem of partners, proficient developers and successful customers and this ecosystem has enabled our customers to innovate. It’s inspiring to see the amount of innovation and true technological advancements at this year’s NIDays.”
