LabVIEW (Laboratory Virtual Instrument Engineering Workbench) is the design and development environment by National Instruments used to create data acquisition, analysis, and control applications based on measurements and signals. It is a graphical programming environment that enables engineers and researchers to design and implement test and automation systems intuitively and flexibly, with rapid access to hardware and results.

LabVIEW offers a wide range of features and tools for creating user interfaces, data acquisition, signal processing, instrument control, and hardware-software integration. Through a visual interface based on block diagrams, users can connect and configure system components, creating a flow of data and commands that logically represents the application’s operation.

LabVIEW is employed across a diverse range of industries, including industrial automation, electronics, robotics, biomedical engineering, scientific research, and education.
