How to Take Device Data Wireless
Features 10/11/2010 Post a comment A behind-the-scenes look at an R&D project designed to create a fast, robust, industrial wireless interface for a 100kHz bandwidth optical encoder and transfer it, in real time, up to 100 meters away and reconstruct the data remotely at 1000 times/sec.
How Engineers Can Use the Cloud
Features 10/5/2010 Post a comment The buzz around cloud computing has been steadily growing for a couple of years now. For design engineers, the key to its potential lies in leveraging its on-demand access, shared computing resources and dynamic provisioning.
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
