Wind Tunnel Control

Remote Control and Measurement of Wind Tunnel System

By Adam Green


About the Webwind Project

This project has fairly simple and specific goals, but many obstacles to overcome. The overall goal is to implement a distributable software application that will allow users to connect to the wind tunnel hardware remotely. This software will allow control of wind speed, positioning, and measuring of the system in near real-time. This software will be built in LabView, and coupled with network based cameras, will provide a complete view and complete control of the system from any networked computer.
