ELECTRONICS: Geely Automobile highlighted tire blow out control technology (BMBS) using a motion-based driving simulator delivered by Mechanical Simulation Corp. The interactive driving simulator features three degrees of freedom - roll, pitch and yaw - and is controlled by the simulation software CarSim for Driving Simulators.
Mechanical Simulation developed a custom multimedia scenario, featuring the famous Hangzhou Bay Bridge, to allow visitors at the exhibition to drive a virtual Geely Panda with the BMBS systems active or disabled. With the BMBS technology integrated into CarSim, customers immediately experienced how the safety technology helps drivers maintain control of their vehicle in the event of a high-speed tire blow out.
The simulator features a 140 degree panoramic display system, operational instrument gauges, high-torque force feedback steering system, 5.1 surround sound system and multiple traffic vehicles to make the driving experience as realistic as possible.
Surveillance, reconnaissance, and search and rescue in military and first responder situations are popular applications for aerial robots. Yet not all the robots are considered unmanned aerial vehicles.
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 radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
