Since the founding of National Instruments in 1976, our mission has been to equip engineers and scientists with tools that accelerate productivity, innovation, and discovery. To do this, we closely monitor trends across industries and draw on this insight to develop tools that meet changing demands and integrate the ever-increasing power of available technology. We know how tough it is to keep up with the staggering pace of change while managing your day-to-day responsibilities. With the 2014 NI Trend Watch, we’re pooling our resources and looking ahead for you.
Incorporating a range of technologies from software-defined radio to revolutionize RF test equipment.
Connecting IT infrastructures and analytic tools, such as the cloud, with data acquisition systems to make faster decisions on test data.
Developing systems that continuously and dynamically interact with their environment through coupling of distributed computational and physical components.
Integrating multiple development approaches into a single solution.
Using mobile devices as user interfaces in measurement and control systems.
Combining fundamental approaches to engineering into more complex, integrated systems to meet changing industry needs.
