Measuring Combustion Cylinder Pressure for Advanced Engine ControlThe pressure to reduce carbon dioxide generation, substantially increase fuel economy and continue to reduce vehicle emissions requires more advanced sensing techniques. Guest expert Dr. Marek Wlodarczyk, president, Optrand Inc. explores existing technology approaches and discusses a direct measurement solution rapidly gaining acceptance for future vehicles.
Predicting Circuit Board Failures Before They OccurThis webcast addresses the detection or sensing of impending failures in systems. Guest expert Doug Goodman from the Ridgetop Group, a leading supplier of electronic prognostics, semiconductor IP blocks and Built-in Self Test (BIST) solutions, explains a technique that applies to several applications.
Solving Sensor Interfacing Issues in Portable Multi-Sensor SystemsAs the number of sensors increase and specifications tighten, the design challenges of the sensor interfacing portion of the system increase. Guest expert Andreas Heldwein from ZMD AG will explain the problems and a solution that can simplify interfacing multiple sensors.

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.
Truchard will be presented the award at the 2014 Golden Mousetrap Awards ceremony during the co-located events Pacific Design & Manufacturing, MD&M West, WestPack, PLASTEC West, Electronics West, ATX West, and AeroCon.
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.
