The LabVIEW myRIO Toolkit provides you with tools for creating and deploying applications on the myRIO. The myRIO Toolkit contains the following components:

  • myRIO VIs—The myRIO VIs provide functionality that you use to interface with the myRIO I/O channels and onboard devices.
  • myRIO USB Monitor—This USB monitor shows basic information about the myRIO that you connect to your computer and provides options for you to work with the myRIO. This USB monitor appears when you use a USB cable to connect the myRIO to your computer.
  • Getting Started with myRIO—This wizard helps you set up a new myRIO and test the onboard devices. To launch this wizard, launch LabVIEW, click the Set Up and Explore link, and select Launch the Getting Started Wizard. You can also access this wizard through the myRIO USB Monitor.
  • myRIO I/O Monitor—This dialog box helps you test and monitor data from different I/O channels on the myRIO. To launch this dialog box, launch LabVIEW, click the Set Up and Explore link, and select Launch the I/O Monitor. You can also access this dialog box through the myRIO USB Monitor.
  • Templates and sample projects—Templates demonstrate useful design patterns and serve as starting points for your applications. Sample projects demonstrate working applications based on the templates. You can customize the templates and sample projects according to the needs of your application. Select File»Create Project to display the Create Project dialog box, which lists templates and sample projects.
  • Examples—Example VIs demonstrate common applications that you can create by using the myRIO Toolkit. You can modify an example VI to fit an application, or you can copy and paste from one or more example VIs into a VI that you create. Refer to the labview\examples\myRIO directory for example VIs installed with the myRIO Toolkit. You can also access these VIs by selecting Help»Find Examples and then selecting Toolkits and Modules»myRIO in the NI Example Finder.

Visit the myRIO Community to find sensor drivers and example code, which requires third-party sensors and actuators. You can also share code and collaborate with other myRIO users on the myRIO Community.
