Image Acquisition and Processing With LabVIEWä combines the general theory of image acquisition and processing, the underpinnings of LabVIEW and the NI Vision toolkit, examples of their applications, and real-world case studies in a clear, systematic, and richly illustrated presentation. Designed for LabVIEW programmers, it fills a significant gap in the technical literature by providing a general training manual for those new to National Instruments (NI) Vision application development and a reference for more experienced vision programmers. A CD-ROM packaged with the book contains libraries of the example images and code referenced in the text, additional technical white papers, a demonstration version of LabVIEW 6.0, and an NI IMAQ demonstration that guides you through its features. System Requirements: Using the code provided on the CD-ROM requires LabVIEW 6.1 or higher and LabVIEW Vision Toolkit 6.1 or higher. Some of the examples also require IMAQ Vision Builder 6.1 or higher, the IMAQ OCR toolkit, and IMAQ 1394 drivers.
This book brings together everything you need to achieve superior results with PC-based image processing and analysis. Thomas Klinger combines a highly accessible overview of the field's key concepts, tools, and techniques; the first expert introduction to NI's breakthrough IMAQ Vision software; and several start-to-finish application case studies. You also get an extensive library of code and image samples, as well as a complete trial version of IMAQ Vision for Windows.

Educational pedagogy is a diverse field of study, one that all educators should be aware of and fluent in so that their classrooms may succeed. Curriculum Design and Classroom Management: Concepts, Methodologies, Tools, and Applications presents cutting-edge research on the development and implementation of various tools used to maintain the learning environment and present information to pupils as effectively as possible. In addition to educators and students of education, this multi-volume reference is intended for educational theorists, administrators, and industry professionals at all levels.
For both students and engineers in R&D, this book explains machine vision in a concise, hands-on way, using the Vision Development Module of the LabView software by National Instruments. Following a short introduction to the basics of machine vision and the technical procedures of image acquisition, the book goes on to guide readers in the use of the various software functions of LabView's machine vision module. It covers typical machine vision tasks, including particle analysis, edge detection, pattern and shape matching, dimension measurements as well as optical character recognition, enabling readers to quickly and efficiently use these functions for their own machine vision applications. A discussion of the concepts involved in programming the Vision Development Module rounds off the book, while example problems and exercises are included for training purposes as well as to further explain the concept of machine vision. With its step-by-step guide and clear structure, this is an essential reference for beginners and experienced researchers alike.

LabVIEWTM has become one of the preeminent platforms for the development of data acquisition and data analysis programs. LabVIEWTM: A Developer’s Guide to Real World Integration explains how to integrate LabVIEW into real-life applications. Written by experienced LabVIEW developers and engineers, the book describes how LabVIEW has been pivotal in solving real-world challenges. Each chapter is self-contained and demonstrates the power and simplicity of LabVIEW in various applications, from image processing to solar tracking systems. Many of the chapters explore how exciting new technologies can be implemented in LabVIEW to enable novel solutions to new or existing problems. The text also presents novel tricks and tips for integrating LabVIEW with third-party hardware and software. Ideal for LabVIEW users who develop stand-alone applications, this down-to-earth guide shows how LabVIEW provides solutions to a variety of application problems. It includes projects and virtual instrumentation for most of the programs and utilities described. Many of the authors’ own software contributions are available on the accompanying CD-ROM.
LabVIEW is an award-winning programming language that allows engineers to create "virtual" instruments on their desktop. This new edition details the powerful features of LabVIEW 8.0. Written in a highly accessible and readable style, LabVIEW Graphical Programming illustrates basic LabVIEW programming techniques, building up to advanced programming concepts. New to this edition is study material for the CLAD and CLD exams.
This book provides a practical and accessible understanding of the fundamental principles of virtual instrumentation. It explains how to acquire, analyze and present data using LabVIEW (Laboratory Virtual Instrument Engineering Workbench) as the application development environment. The book introduces the students to the graphical system design model and its different phases of functionality such as design, prototyping and deployment. It explains the basic concepts of graphical programming and highlights the features and techniques used in LabVIEW to create Virtual Instruments (VIs). Using the technique of modular programming, the book teaches how to make a VI as a subVI. Arrays, clusters, structures and strings in LabVIEW are covered in detail. The book also includes coverage of emerging graphical system design technologies for real-world applications. In addition, extensive discussions on data acquisition, image acquisition, motion control and LabVIEW tools are presented. This book is designed for undergraduate and postgraduate students of instrumentation and control engineering, electronics and instrumentation engineering, electrical and electronics engineering, electronics and communication engineering, and computer science and engineering. It will be also useful to engineering students of other disciplines where courses in virtual instrumentation are offered. Key Features : Builds the concept of virtual instrumentation by using clear-cut programming elements. Includes a summary that outlines important learning points and skills taught in the chapter. Offers a number of solved problems to help students gain hands-on experience of problem solving. Provides several chapter-end questions and problems to assist students in reinforcing their knowledge.
