In previous data-acquisition projects, NHR developed test setups using Visual C++ and other high-level language development environments. For the new project, they selected MATLAB and the MATLAB Data Acquisition Toolbox. The Data Acquisition Toolbox provided them with a seamless interface to a number of third-party data acquisition (DAQ) cards and allowed live data to be streamed into MATLAB for runtime analysis and visualization. Having all data collection and processing within the MATLAB environment enabled them to do more post-processing and to customize the graphic representation of results.
