In this lab, students will implement vibration, distance, and light intensity measurements using three different sensors. Additionally, they will implement their own measurement system to solve a measurement problem using the sensors and tools they’ve learned about.
After completing this lab, students will be able to:
Use a piezo film vibration sensor to measure vibration
Use a Hall Effect sensor to measure a magnetic field
Use a phototransistor to measure light intensity
Analyze vibration data in the frequency domain and design a filter to pass the desired frequencies
Curve fit and calibrate hall effect and phototransistor data based on a measured distance
Design and implment a measurement system to solve a measurement challenge around distance
Basic proficiency using LabVIEW
Basic proficiency using ELVIS III Instruments
Basic knowledge of components and their behaviors
NI ELVIS III
Engineering laboratory solution for project-based learning that combines instrumentation and embedded design with a web-driven experience, delivering a greater understanding of engineering fundamentals and system design.
Automated Measurements Board for NI ELVIS III
An application board for NI ELVIS III that provides students with a experimental platform for understanding and designing a signal chain for sensor integration.
LabVIEW is systems engineering software for applications that require test, measurement, and control with rapid access to hardware and data insights.
