Platform-based systems provider NI has partnered with PTC to roll out a new IoT teaching approach with a suite of advanced tools, consisting of the myRIO Student Embedded Device, LabVIEW toolkits, PTC’s ThingWorx software and projects created by Tufts University.

The integration of myRIO and the PTC ThingWorx online tools connects real-world measurements to cloud-hosted analysis and visualisation via the LabVIEW system design software. The learning resources are hosted by an online community built specifically for educators.

Educators interested in bringing IoT into their curriculum may apply for a summer beta programme, which provides early access to an updated LabVIEW toolkit as well as student-focused projects and industry support that deliver a new approach to education using cloud technology.
