Team Testimonials

UCL Racing Team

"UCL Racing completed the endurance race and obtained 18th place and this would have not been possible without NI's guidance and support throughout the year. The team has had a great experience working with your company and would like to be in touch with you in the future years regarding Formula Student."

Cardiff Formula Student Racing

"The data acquisition and damper control is handled via real time reconfigurable hardware from National Instruments with all of the required code written by the team using the dataflow language of LabVIEW."

Liverpool John Moore

"The CompactRIO was easy to work with and LabVIEW provided an easy format to program with. National Instruments courses and technical assistance really allowed us to maximise our learning potential on the Formula Student Projects."

Liverpool John Moore Univeristy



Manchester University

"NI hardware and software allows us to be open to experimentation and fast adaption, which is very important in automotive development. Using Multisim and LabVIEW software with NI CompanctRIO programmable automation controller (PAC) we were able to simulate the vehicle, collect data and use the data to create customer alarms."

Manchester Racing Team


Oxford Brookes

"Compared to systems used in previous years, NI products offer increasing vehicle performance gains because of the versatility of the CompactRIO and LabVIEW. CompactRIO allows shortened calculation time, better system customisation and greater hard drive capacity than our current engine management and control systems."

Oxford Brookes Racing Team


Sussex University

"Using the CompactRIO, the process of receiving data and controlling the display was vastly simplified. The data acquisition system could be easily adapted and offered room for future expansion. The seamless interaction between the CompactRIO and LabVIEW allowed powerful VIs to be quickly created and implemented."

University of Sussex


"Working with a combination of LabVIEW, DIAdem and Single Board RIO has saved us a lot of time. The graphical system design approach has made programming complex systems simple."
