NI IoT Education Beta

NI and PTC have collaborated to bring you an Internet of Things (IoT) teaching approach with a suite of industry-leading tools to support engineering studies for the IoT. The teaching tools, including NI myRIO, LabVIEW toolkit, PTC’s Thingworx software, and sample lab projects created by renowned professor at Tufts University, Dr. Chris Rogers, provide professors and students a way to build real-world IoT applications in the classroom. We are opening our beta program to early adopters who want to influence the future solution and begin using the tools now. Apply today!
