The purpose of this paper is to introduce an implementation of MathLink in LabVIEW and to demonstrate how this link will provide a whole new environment of develop instrumentation applications. Its ease of the use is illustrated by three implementations of a simple robotic experiment. The link which is based on the complementarity of the two components, results in a great added-value. Some benchmark results are presented in order to appreciate the possibility to implement some real-time control algorithms in Mathematica.
