JKI REST Client Library for LabVIEW Simplifies Web Service and Cloud Connectivity

Because of its elegant simplicity, REST APIs have become the de facto standard for how software communicates with other software over the network, including backend services running in the cloud and computing nodes in a distributed system. REST is commonly used by smartphone apps and web pages to communicate with web servers. It is even used by smart cameras, home automation devices, and drones — it’s powering the Internet of Things (IoT)! At JKI, we help our customers design and build high-tech system, and we’re seeing REST rapidly move into industrial test, measurement, and automation systems — it’s a key component in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) revolution.  We

Rapid Development of Intuitive LabVIEW-Based Software for a Touch Screen Medical Device

Profusa is a start-up company made up of talented scientists and engineers working to develop a new generation of biosensors to monitor our body’s unique chemistry in an unprecedented way. At Profusa, their goal is to help physicians salvage limbs of patients suffering from critical limb ischemia by providing them with a new way to continuously measure tissue oxygen before, during, and after surgical treatments. Having already developed a lab prototype using LabVIEW, Profusa teamed up with us to help develop intuitive LabVIEW-based software for their Touch Screen Medical Device. Objective: To develop an easy-to-use, commercial-grade touch screen software interface using NI LabVIEW

Why do we need dynamically typed JSON library in LabVIEW?

We’ve all used JSON in our applications, to send messages over networks, to connect to REST APIs or to simply save configuration data to a disk. Over the past 10 years JSON has climbed to the most popular data exchange format replacing XML. Since LabVIEW 2013, there has been a native implementation of JSON shipping with LabVIEW. At JKI we are power users of LabVIEW and found the native JSON implementation often not meeting our needs. We came up with our own JSON library, the JKI JSON serialization library, that we just open sourced and made freely available to the LabVIEW community.
