Computer Measurement Systems Laboratory

Person in charge: Dr Dariusz Żak

 

Using the hardware and software resources of the didactic studio students learn about the principles of construction and the basic measurement methods used in computer systems for measuring non-electrical and electrical quantities. They will learn principles of digital measurement methods of basic size, construction of non-electrical size sensors, and analog and digital elements of measuring systems. They will gain the ability to use the integrated graphical LabVIEW programming environment to design systems based on computer-based measurement cards, virtual instruments, and GPIBbus-based measurement systems (IEEE-488.1, 488.2). They will acquire practical skills in creating complex measurement and control systems.
