LabVIEW is a graphical programming system from National Instruments. LabVIEW stands for "Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Engineering Workbench" and uses a graphical programming language, called "G", which is based on a data flow model. For complex mathematical and control tasks, LabVIEW contains extensive function libraries as well as drivers. This makes LabVIEW also suitable for the areas of control and test automation.
