The LabVIEW Robotics Module includes examples that demonstrate robotics concepts. Some examples consist of LabVIEW projects that include RT and FPGA VIs and an FPGA bitfile compiled for use on an NI sbRIO device. To run these examples on a different target, you must adapt the examples to fit the target.
|Note The NI LabVIEW Robotics Starter Kit contains an NI sbRIO-9631 or sbRIO-9632 device. You typically can run Robotics Module examples on the Starter Kit hardware without modifying the FPGA VIs and bitfiles, but you might need to add the hardware modules the kit contains to the FPGA target in the Project Explorer window.|
Complete the following steps to adapt a Robotics Module example that includes an FPGA VI and bitfile to run on a different target.
|Note The new FPGA target must support all items you copy to the target.|
If you move an example configured for one type of target, such as a Single-Board RIO target, to a target of another type, such as a CompactRIO or R Series target, you must ensure that I/O controls and constants you move use compatible properties and methods. Right-click an I/O control or constant in a VI and select Configure I/O Type from the shortcut menu. In the Configure FPGA I/O Name Control Type dialog box, ensure the methods and properties in the I/O Item Type list also appear as supported in the I/O Name Control Type list.
