The course is intended to familiarize students with selected software tools for measurement and control. The most of the semester discusses mainly NI LabVIEW environment whose properties are to most of students of ICT Prague easily understandable. LabVIEW has a implemented "graphical" programming language that provides convenient and rapid application development for measurement and control in research areas and also in practice. It is not very complex and fundamental work with it can be handled without the knowledge of high-level programming languages. During the lectures and exercises are discussed possibilities and options of connectivity of measurement equipment to PC.
Aim of the course -

The students will be able:

To create basic program structure and will know function NI LabVIEW environment.

To create a simple program in NI LabVIEW.

To know methods and possibilities of communication with the laboratory and industrial measurement devices.
