Features 5/16/2005 Post a comment Engineers have found a way to keep vehicles stable while driving on slippery surfaces. Now they need to cut the technology's cost, so they convince the public to buy it.
Is Turnkey HMI Right for You?
Features 5/16/2005 Post a comment Visualization operations seldom stand alone today. Integration with other plant information systems and increasingly complex tasks are making a total solution approach a more common choice.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
