    Lightbulb PC+LabView = Power/Speed/HR logging software

    Hi guys, I'm not sure if someone has posted something like this here before. I wrote a little program to connect my bike computer sensor and heart rate monitor to my PC. All it requires is the magnet and sensor from a bike computer and a PC with a printer port. (The Heart Rate and Power logging requires some other equipment - see the readme for details). The program requires National Instruments LabView to run. I think they have a demo available on their website for you to try out.

    See the following post to download my program
    'Homebrew' Roller Racing Set-ups

    I used LabView just because it is easy to make realtime charting/graphing software. The guts of the program are a simple tachometer that reads pulses from the magnet sensor and converts pulse rate to speed. The heart rate receiver works the same way.

    Very nice. Have you tried the "Build Application" option? It makes an exe that can be run with the freely distributed "LabView Runtime Engine" installed. This would make it a little more accessible. Good work though

    I didn't know about the build application feature. I will see if my student version of the software lets me do this. Will definitely try it out and post back here if it works.
