Getting Started with IoT using SystemLink Cloud

In this lab, students will implement a cloud-based IoT platform using SystemLink Cloud. Students will experiment with a monitoring system and central processing web package. Additionally, they will learn about best practices, tools, and capabilities of the SystemLink Cloud platform. Finally, students implement a measurement from their own edge-node device and write it to the cloud.

This is lab 16 of 17 in the course, Measurements and Instrumentation.


After completing this lab, students will be able to:
  1. Discuss the uses, advantages, and capabilities of a cloud-enabled IoT soltion, as compared to a distributed data acquisition system
  2. Learn and implement various aspects of LabVIEW and SystemLink Cloud that allow your VI to collect, analyze, package, and share simulated data through the cloud from various internet-enabled devices and with multiple users
  3. Deploy SystemLink Cloud code on the NI ELVIS III and publish real-time measurement data
  4. Provide real-life examples showcasing the distinctive abilities of "cloud-enabled" and cloud-native applicaitons for an IoT involving measurement and control systems


  • Basic proficiency using LabVIEW and SystemLink Cloud
  • Basic proficiency using ELVIS III Instruments
  • Basic knowledge of components and their behaviors


Engineering laboratory solution for project-based learning that combines instrumentation and embedded design with a web-driven experience, delivering a greater understanding of engineering fundamentals and system design.

Automated Measurements Board for NI ELVIS III

An application board for NI ELVIS III that provides students with a experimental platform for understanding and designing a signal chain for sensor integration.


LabVIEW is systems engineering software for applications that require test, measurement, and control with rapid access to hardware and data insights.

SystemLink Cloud

SystemLink™ Cloud is NI-hosted software for hosting web applications and dashboards to display data and provide instantaneous access to live systems.
