Robotino3 and National Instruments myRIO

The Festo Robotino and National Instrument myRIO share their focus in the field of educational and research work. The Robotino provides open source software ( The Robotino myRIO Toolkit provides drivers and API for the Robotino and some VI examples so that the user can start their Robotino LabVIEW experience out of the box.

Robotino myRIO Toolkit

The Robotino myRIO Toolkit is a NI LabView API for the set-up of a Festo Robotino3 with a NI myRIO as control unit. The Toolkit includes VIs for a simplified implementation of the Omnidrive, IR-Sensors and other I/O. All VIs are open source and can be modified.
