Designing Next Generation Test SystemsVendor:National Instruments | Type:Application Note | Category: Electronics/TestThese application notes from National Instruments offer cost and time saving techniques that you can use to more effectively run test on your systems. The application notes includes white papers provide insight into how test managers and engineers are overcoming challenges with their modular software, software-defined, architecture, multi-vendor, multiplatform tests. These interactive application notes from National Instruments allow you to have more accurate longer lasting tests then ever before. Siemens PLM Webcast on Mechatronics Process ManagementVendor:Siemens PLM Software | Type:Web Event | Category:Electronics/Test Building intelligence into a product requires software that is integrated with certain functions of the product. The addition of wire harness, electronics and software to an already complex product development process adds new challenges for the product development schedule, cost and quality. All of these different types of data, as well as their change processes, must be managed and shared.

Are they robots or androids? We're not exactly sure. Each talking, gesturing Geminoid looks exactly like a real individual, starting with their creator, professor Hiroshi Ishiguro of Osaka University in Japan.
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.
