Freelance Projects

 
 
 
 
 
LabVIEW Developer
Freelance
Jun 01, 2009 – Aug 30, 2011 Projects done for organizations in South Korea and Australia

Carried out following LabVIEW projects:

  • Micro Viscometer, Junsung E&R, Gwangju, South Korea, August 2011.
    Developed a Human Machine Interface (HMI) software on LabVIEW platform for live monitoring and controlling biomedical instrument called “Micro Viscometer”. This instrument measures Blood/PBS viscosity for disease identification through Image Processing.

  • Tunnel Cable Automatic Fling Monitoring System, Junsung E&R, Gwangju, South Korea, August 2011
    Developed a Human Machine Interface (HMI) software on LabVIEW platform for live monitoring and controlling the cable fling system.

  • Simulation of Monitoring and Controlling of Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV), Australia, February 2010
    The simulation model demoed in this project is believed to be the skilled way to simulate the designed software of UGV Server. Two Virtual Instruments (VIs) run in parallel, the GUI of UGV Server and the other one simulates the behavior of UGV. Both the VIs communicate through TCP/IP communication protocols. Designed UGV Server VI can be employed for real-world GPS based hardware system monitoring and even for controlling. Snapshot of “UGV Server” can be seen here.

  • Simulation of SCADA System of Unsought Tablets Detection for Pharmaceutical Industries, Australia, June 2009
    An efficient approach to simulate any industrial plant. Two VIs were designed for this simulation; one simulates the server and other simulates the plant, and they both were linked to each other through global communication functions.

  • Simulation of Home Automation using LabVIEW, Australia, June 2009
    The simulation environment is designed to imitate the electronic automated home. The system is designed in such a way that can be used with the real-world signals.
