Pensacola, FL--Raytheon E-Systems and Emultek Inc. (Herndon, VA) formed a strategic partnership to develop multimedia simulation training programs for the Department of Defense. Raytheon chose Emultek's Rapid SIMULATION4 software as the preferred software to create real-time, free-play simulations that can be seamlessly integrated with most major CBT authoring tools.
Emultek claims that Rapid PLUS is the only simulation tool that requires no coding. Using a simplified and powerful form of state-transition diagrams, non-programmers can link objects to create a fully interactive simulation by pointing and clicking. Users can build applications top-down, bottom-up, or any combination. Rapid PLUS reduces time-to-market for embedded systems by providing a suite of tools such as automatic specification, code and test script generation.
Rapid SIMULATION is a 32-bit, Windows-based, visual development environment that allows users to create fully functional simulations of interactive systems-- in a code-free environment.
Robots that walk have come a long way from simple barebones walking machines or pairs of legs without an upper body and head. Much of the research these days focuses on making more humanoid robots. But they are not all created equal.
The IEEE Computer Society has named the top 10 trends for 2014. You can expect the convergence of cloud computing and mobile devices, advances in health care data and devices, as well as privacy issues in social media to make the headlines. And 3D printing came out of nowhere to make a big splash.
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.
