MOTION CONTROL: Honeywell’s new line of handlebar controls meet off-road vehicle manufacturers’ desire for controls that are easily customized, incur low upfront tooling costs, enhance safety and increase design flexibility. The new 1080HD Series provide off-the-shelf, SAE spec-qualified handlebar controls that provide a greater number of functions per package volume and are easily configured in different ways. With little up-front investment for the OEM, Honeywell’s platform approach creates a customized right- or left-hand control in a cost-efficient, qualified handlebar control to support short OEM product design cycles. The 1080HD Series offers enhanced safety through an optional runaway prevention switch and through a smaller form factor that enables easier user access to critical vehicle functions. To meet additional requirements for design flexibility and aesthetic differentiation, Honeywell developed three patent-pending designs that can be applied to the new handlebar controls.
It won't be too much longer and hardware design, as we used to know it, will be remembered alongside the slide rule and the Karnaugh map. You will need to move beyond those familiar bits and bytes into the new world of software centric design.
People who want to take advantage of solar energy in their homes no longer need to install a bolt-on solar-panel system atop their houses -- they can integrate solar-energy-harvesting shingles directing into an existing or new roof instead.
Kaspersky Labs indicated at its February meeting that cyber attacks are far more sophisticated than previous thought. It turns out even air-gapping (disconnecting computers from the Internet to protect against cyber intrusion) isn’t a foolproof way to avoid getting hacked. And Kaspersky implied the NSA is the smartest attacker.
