Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The aim of the course is to introduce students to the elementary possibilities of the LabVIEW development environment as an advanced tool for the creation of modern biomedical applications based on Virtual Instrumentation (VI). After this course, the student will be able to use the fundamentals of graphically oriented programming in LabVIEW to create complex biomedical applications and utilize the software for variety of tasks of biomedical engineering. In addition, he/she will be able to design a graphical user interface for a modern multiplatform biomedical applications and apply the basic programming techniques for block diagram development (WHILE loop, FOR loop, CASE structure, sequence, subprogram (subVI) development, biomedical data storage and loading, biomedical data visualization, VI timing, shift register, MATLAB Scrip Node, etc.). Student will be able to work with one-dimensional biomedical signals such as ECG, PCG, EEG, etc., and will learn to work with DAQ (Data Acquisition, measuring cards - collecting real data from biomedical sensors). The subject reflects the requirements the needs for LabVIEW Core 1 and Core 2 skills. The course prepare for the Certified LabVIEW Associate Developer (CLAD) certification exam. The internationally recognized CLAD certificate declares the first level knowledge and experience in the field of Virtual Instrumentation, LabVIEW.
