Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello everyone,

I am a 4th year Mechanical Engineering student and recently completed a course called Instrumentation and Measurements. We used different sensors and actuators that we connected to a : myRio controller, breadboard, computer software (LabView). My question is, how can I connect sensors in a household for example. I usually make all the connections then run the program. But of course in a house I'm not gonna keep wires all over the place connected to a myRio controller and a laptop always connected to run the program. How can I store the code and keep it continuously running without the need of a laptop and a relatively large controller (myRio is about 8 x 8 x 3 cm)

Please if anyone may help me with this.
thank you !

You should look into Arundino and Raspberry Pi platforms and the many sensors and actuators available to them.
