Abstract

A virtual instrument is a system formed by a computer and an equipment of measurement or command which uses a program executed in the computer. The real equipment is accessible to the operator by the graphic interface of the employed software. The monitoring of sensors in the test platform uses a HMI (Human Machine Interface) developed in the software LabVIEW. The experimental tests with sensor platform allow the students perform experiments on-line for monitoring the observed signal in the output sensors.
