Opto 22 Develops Tool to Build Mobile Automation, Monitoring & Control Interfaces
How an application built using Opto 22ís Groov tool might look on an iPhone. The automation vendor plans to release the tool for building and deploying web-based automation, monitoring, and control interfaces for mobile devices regardless of OS in April. The interfaces are meant to be complementary to human machine interfaces (HMIs) from Opto 22ís SNAP PAC control system. (Source: Opto 22)
As automation systems become more interconnected, mobile devices will play an even larger role in the information chain. This tool should help engineers develop interfaces for a range of smartphones and other mobile devices that look more contemporary and provide them with information from automation systems in an easy-to-read way.
The landscape of product development is changing. Electronic components and the devices that use them are shrinking, while power and functionality are rising. As a result, heat management is now in the forefront of the design process.
Ahead of their appearance at Design & Manufacturing Minneapolis, we look at some of the engineering behind two robots from the hit show, BattleBots, as well as some tried-and-true fighting tactics engineers should keep in mind when taking their own robots into battle.
