Use the "Set Time" function to adjust the RT system time to match the (assumed accurate) PC system time. Restart the RT target to save the current RT time to be reloaded on each reboot of the Academic RIO Device.
A quick and easy way for a PC HMI (human-machine interface) VI to observe the state of an RT-hosted network-published shared variable (NPSV) without creating any block diagram code; an alternative to programmatically accessing the NPSV value.
Example of a complete RT system controller based on the Queued Message Handler (QMH) design pattern with multiple parallel task loops implementing behaviors with queued state machines (QSMs), various inter-process communication techniques (queues and local variables), and inter-target communication techniques (network-published shared variables (NPSVs) and network streams). The PC host human-machine interface (HMI) can remotely connect to the system through the network, monitor the status of the security system, and control it remotely.
