Designing a Speedometer
In general, the main objective of this lab was to create a Labview program that
computes the velocity of a bicycle wheel with a certain diameter. In this lab, we had to
measure the speed of a 26 inch diameter of the bicycle wheel by using a Reed switch.
Reed switch is a transducer that detects a signal when it senses a magnetic field.
Labview VI program incorporated measurements that converted from count per
revolution into miles per hour of a bicycle wheel. This program was then connected to the
Reed switch using a USB NI 6009 which measured the speed of the wheel. The results
were then represented in the speedometer in the front panel of the Labview VI.
completing all of these, a performance test was performed on a bicycle wheel. As a result
the speedometer displayed the speed of the bicycle wheel.
