Machine Vision Meets National Instruments CompactRIO

What is CompactRIO?

The National Instruments CompactRIO is a small rugged industrial control and acquisition system powered by reconfigurable I/O (RIO) FPGA technology for ultrahigh performance and customization. NI CompactRIO incorporates a real-time processor and reconfigurable FPGA for reliable stand-alone embedded or distributed applications, and hot-swappable industrial I/O modules with built-in signal conditioning for direct connection to sensors and actuators. CompactRIO embedded systems are developed using high-productivity LabVIEW graphical programming tools for rapid development.

National Instruments Compact RIO with Modules

CompactRIO in Robotics

With over 100 I/O modules available from National Instruments and third party vendors, including modules for motion control, analog and digital I/O, the CompactRIO provides a tightly integrated and customizable solution for a wide range of robotics and automation applications.

The AF-1501 Module

The AF-1501 is a CompactRIO frame grabber module that supports analog video cameras.  Any off-the-shelf NTSC, PAL, or SECAM camera can be plugged into the AF-1501 module to capture video data directly into the CompactRIO system.  The AF-1501 LabVIEW drivers provided by MoviMED allow developers to fully leverage the native image processing libraries included in the LabVIEW Vision Development Module
