“At 20.1 percent, NI’s expenditure on R&D is significantly higher than the industrial average,” said Rohan Joy Thomas Industry Analyst . “With solutions such as PXI, LabVIEW, TestStand, and VeriStand, NI is a pioneer in the development of hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) and vehicle-in-the-Loop (VIL) testing methodologies. Its ECU test system and the battery test system increase flexibility and integrate new technologies to help reduce the development time of autonomous cars and EVs.”

The Innovation Excellence best practice is bestowed upon companies that are industry leaders reinventing themselves through R&D investments and innovation. These may be companies that are entering a new market and “contend” for leadership through heavy investment in R&D and innovation.

Frost & Sullivan Best Practices awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research to identify best practices in the industry.
