Finally, there is a turnkey solution that allows educators to teach students how to control sensors and motors using LabVIEW. We are proud to announce the release of the Robotics Sensor & Motor Training Kit for NI myRIO and LabVIEW by Studica. Consider it as a practical tool that helps you teach basic LabVIEW and allows your students to get a true understanding of how to control motors, sensors, and actuators. Students get insight into the background behind the code and learn how the subsystems function. This exciting new bundle allows you to plug the myRIO into the Sensor Training Board or the Motor Training Board and get started right away. No other driver option is needed. This kit is available exclusively at Studica.

Get More from LabVIEW & myRIO

If you use myRIO or LabVIEW in your classroom, you already know how powerful they are. With this new Robotics Sensor and Motor Training Kit, you can get even more from these powerful devices. Teach how to control motors and sensors with LabVIEW. Give students a better understanding of how to control robots and automated mechanisms. This bundle provides a comprehensive solution for introducing sensors, actuators, and motor controls. It is an excellent resource for schools competing in FIRST Robotics, WRO Advanced Robotics Challenge, WorldSkills Mobile Robotics, and other robotics competitions.

Robotics Sensor and Motor Training Kit

This innovative kit includes a Sensor Training Board, a Motor Training Board, a power adapter, connection cables, and courseware. Each board includes the essential hardware needed to learn how to control various sensors and motors.
