We had quite a year! Before we jump into 2018, let’s take a look back at how we helped engineers and scientists accelerate productivity, innovation, and discovery last year.
1. We created a collaborative space to enable the Industrial IoT
In January, we debuted the Industrial IoT Lab, a new space at our headquarters in Austin, Texas, where industry partners and leaders can collaborate, innovate, and showcase next-generation technologies enabling the Industrial Internet of Things. One of the best parts of the lab are the on-site Industrial Internet Consortium testbeds, which drive discussions and ideas among domain experts tackling real-world challenges.
We can’t wait to see what this ecosystem of partners and customers does with the space to focus on the IIoT solutions that will change the way businesses operate!
At NIWeek, which moved to May this year, we announced LabVIEW NXG, the next generation of LabVIEW engineering system design software. This innovative new approach to measurement automation empowers domain experts to focus on what matters most: the problem, not the tool.
Be on the lookout for the next update to LabVIEW NXG in early 2018, when we’ll introduce key functionality for engineers developing and deploying automated test and measurement systems.
3. All-in-one, out-of-the-box automated test: ATE Core Configurations
Another one of our major NIWeek 2017 announcements was ATE Core Configurations. We’re empowering test organizations with a solution for standardization by providing mechanical, safety, and power infrastructure all in one package.
In an era of converged devices, standardization and test system layout flexibility that accelerate system design and reduce time to deployment for automated test systems.
4. We’re leading the auto industry toward safe, autonomous vehicles
In October, we announced the new Vehicle Radar Test System (VRTS) to improve safety and reliability test for ADAS and autonomous vehicles. It offers a more comprehensive approach to radar test, including traditional and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) test techniques.
We couldn’t have launched the VRTS without ADAS iiT and our Alliance Partners who provide advanced system integration and support.
5. Trend Watch: what all engineers should watch for in 2018
Technology is changing and progressing at a rate faster than most of us have seen. To help you tackle tomorrow’s challenges, we created NI Trend Watch to give you insight into some of the biggest trends and pitfalls engineers will face.
From machine learning and the IIoT to 5G and the electrification of vehicles, we want you to be one step ahead.
