Abstract—This paper deals with on-line (Real-time) multiresolution signal analysis using wavelet transform by means of graphical programming using LabVIEW. A system for wavelet analysis has been designed based on Arduino-Uno board interfaced to LabVIEW. To achieve the interfacing LIFA has been used. Firstly, the noise from the signal was remove using wavelet transform, and then the de-noised signal analyzed to multi-level frequency bands. A Matlab code to do wavelet analysis was written in a Matlab script node in LabVIEW. To test this system, a vibration signal form robotic arm was captured and analyzed using this system, and the result utilized to establish if there is fault in the robot. The result showed that multi-resolution analysis can be achieved efficiently using this system and can be applied in many applications.
