A Real Time Based Intelligent System Designed for the Process Automation & Control Applications
LabVIEW is a graphical programming tool based on the dataflow language G. Recently, runtime support for a hard real time environment has become available for LabVIEW, which makes it an option for embedded system prototyping. Due to its char acteristics, the environment presents itself as an ideal tool for both the design and implementation of embedded software. In this project we study the design and implementation of embedded software by using G as the specification language and the LabVIEW RT real time platform. One of the main advantages of this approach is that the environment leads itself to a very smooth transition from design to implementation, allowing for powerful co simulation strategies (e.g. hardwa re in the loop, runtime modeling). In order to evaluate the effectiveness and possible improvements on G as an embedded software description language we prove that, under certain conditions and semantic restrictions, a non - terminating G program is strictly bounded in memory. Home automati on is an application of ubiquitous computing in which the home environment is monitored by ambient intelligence to provide context - aware services and facilitate remote home control. This paper discusses the approach of real - time system develop ment using the data acquisition tool of LabVIEW. The system can monitor the temperature, humidity, lighting, fire & burglar alarm, gas density of the house and have infrared sensor to guarantees the family security. The approach combines hardware and softw are technologies. Virtual instrumentation uses a general - purpose computer to mimic real instruments with their controls and displays.
