Auto Detect Arduino in LabVIEW

LabVIEW VI to auto detect Arduino Microcontroller connected to your computer through USB

Arduino is an open source electronics prototyping platform. NI LabVIEW is a powerful development environment to design virtual instruments for measurement and control applications.

In my opinion the interaction between the easy-to-use Arduino hardware and the powerful simplicity of LabVIEW software tools has an explosive potentiality.

I have designed a simple VI (Virtual Instrument) to auto detect the Arduino board connected to your computer via USB. Once you have correctly installed Arduino Serial – Virtual COM driver, you can use this VI to auto detect the virtual COM the board is attached to.

Type Arduino Board Name in the text field and run the VI, it returns the VISA resource name you can use in your own LabVIEW application.
You can download the VI at this link
