About the book

Virtual Instrumentation revolutionized the engineer's and scientists’ activities in the field of measurements, monitoring, and testing. The main programing environment used for virtual instrument implementation in LabVIEW was developed by NI company. A very important aspect of education and engineering development is to use the right tool. In the current development, PCs and embedded systems are on a large scale use. Therefore, the programming of these could be a challenge for non-programming specialists. LabVIEW offers a solution for developing and implementing complex applications even for non-programming specialists. The LabVIEW libraries and add-ons offered by NI or the community allow educators and engineers to cover domains that otherwise would not be tangible for them. This book aims to collect original works and reviews concerning subjects such as correct technique programming approaches, simulation and modeling, systems control, remote control, IoT and IIoT, renewable energy, artificial intelligence, and combining LabVIEW with other programming languages.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mrs. Dajana Jusic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
