  1. We are migrating the Unity Forums to Unity Discussions. On July 12, the Unity Forums will become read-only.

    Please, do not make any changes to your username or email addresses at id.unity.com during this transition time.

    It's still possible to reply to existing private message conversations during the migration, but any new replies you post will be missing after the main migration is complete. We'll do our best to migrate these messages in a follow-up step.

    On July 15, Unity Discussions will become read-only until July 18, when the new design and the migrated forum contents will go live.

    I have a .vi file (LabView) that reads motor positions using FPGA. Basically I need to read these motor positions called counts which is a numerical value of 0-2000. I need to read these counts in real-time so that I can control my GameObject rotation or angular position.

    Does anyone know any basics on communicating LabView from Unity? I just started using both LabView and Unity. I would like to know where/how I can start in solving this problem. I would like to know any experience regrading this. An example/tutorial video or links about LabView-Unity communications would be nice. Cheers.

    Thanks for the heads up!

    LabView does work with UDP/TCP,

    I'll go with TCP. I've never done any of these things before but it's a start. Cheers.

    Did you connect LabVIEW to unity? I am trying to connect but having some issues. Any help would be appreciated.
