WF Smartphone Sensor Toolkit

The WF Smartphone Sensor Toolkit for LabVIEW makes it possible to utilize smartphone sensor data in your LabVIEW application.

Just start the Sensor Bridge application on your smartphone, plug it into a Windows PC or a NI Real-Time target with a USB-cord and start collecting the sensor data. 

The following measurement data is supported in the toolkit and can be acquired from a smartphone*
                  • Accelerometer
                  • Gyroscope
                  • Magnetic field
                  • Rotation vector
                  • Geomagnetic rotation vector
                  • Gravity
                  • Light
