Extending LabVIEW to the Web using “LabSockets”

2,252 views

Published on

Bergmans Mechatronics’ “LabSockets” system enables LabVIEW applications to be monitored and controlled from a desktop or mobile web browser (including the Safari browser for iPhone and iPad), without browser plug-ins. The system employs the new WebSocket interface standard which enables continuous, bi-directional communications between web browsers and servers.

Included in the presentation are i) the limitations of current techniques for remote access to LabVIEW applications; ii) an introduction to WebSockets; and, iii) an overview of the structure and operation of the LabSocket system. A video of the system in action is available here http://screencast.com/t/eKuQ02PAdo .

Please contact John Bergmans (jbergmans<at>bergmans.com) if you'd like to try using LabSockets with your application.

  • Thanks John. Eventually, I'd like to offer the LabSocket system as both a cloud service and as a standalone system for use within private Intranets. My immediate objective though is to find users who would like to try the LabSocket system, more or less as is. There would be no charge for these initial users to use the system.

    I may need some help down the road with further development if there's any interest in the system. Areas which require development include - adding a login feature and a subscription capability for the cloud version of the system; expanding and improving support for additional LabVIEW GUI elements; and, probably porting the current PHP-based backend code to Java.

    BTW, I've posted more WebSocket demos and info at: http://www.bergmans.com/WebSocket.html

  • This is very cool. Do you plan to develop this into a product or release it under an open source licence?
    Do you need any help further developing it?
