Requires: Robotics Module. This topic might not match its corresponding palette in LabVIEW depending on your operating system, licensed product(s), and target.

Use the Robotics VIs to design algorithms and applications that you can deploy to embedded robotic systems.

The VIs on this palette can return general LabVIEW error codes and Robotics error codes.

Note  Refer to the KnowledgeBase at for information about the deterministic characteristics of the Robotics VIs.
Connectivity VIsUse the items on the Connectivity palette to access VIs that interface with other robotics software, including third-party products.
KUKA youBot VIsUse the KUKA youBot VIs to design and control a KUKA youBot.
Obstacle Avoidance VIsUse the Obstacle Avoidance VIs to implement obstacle avoidance in mobile robot vehicles.
Path Planning VIsUse the Path Planning VIs to calculate a path to a goal point in a map that represents the robot environment.
Protocols VIsUse the Protocols VIs to process data formatted in communication protocols, such as data sent by sensors, in LabVIEW.
Robotic Arm VIsUse the Robotic Arm VIs to design and control a serial robotic arm. You can perform dynamic and kinematic calculations on an arm, simulate an arm, and so on to prototype the robotic arm.
Sensors and Actuators DriversUse the Sensors and Actuators drivers to configure and control sensors and actuators commonly used in robotics systems. Browse the Instrument I/O palette to find other drivers you can use. Use the NI Instrument Driver Finder to search for and install additional drivers.
Simulator VIsUse the Simulator VIs to control the robotics simulator and interact with components in a robotics simulation.
Starter Kit VIsUse the VIs on the subpalette that corresponds to your LabVIEW Robotics Starter Kit robot to control the robot without writing an FPGA VI.
Steering VIsUse the Steering VIs to create a mobile robotics system that consists of a built-in or user-defined steering frame and wheels. You can calculate and convert between robot and wheel velocity and connect with motors that drive wheels to implement motor control.
