In this chapter, discussions about the applications based on LabVIEW with a typical open embedded system such as Arduino. Instead of the applications with use of National Instrument hardware, an user can build an low-cost microcontroller-based system which user interface and procedure designed in LabVIEW. Recently, Arduino-based applications are one of interested developments, the embedded system is designed with the low-cost microcontroller of ATMEGA2560 and easy to program with IDE (Interface Development Environment). However, the difficulties of Arduino-based applications are user interface design while LabVIEW is an excellent utilities for the panel designs. The limitation of some LabVIEW applications is the requirements from combination with high performance NI hardwares. Under interactions between LabVIEW and IDE library designed by Arduino, the low-cost system can be easily built for experiments or prototype designs.
