Measuring flow with ultrasonic signalsThese battery-powered flowmeters have no moving parts, using transit-time ultrasonic technology, where two flow sensors alternately transmit and receive a signal and "time of flight" measures flow rate. There is very little pressure loss and no filtration is needed. Both 150-lb ANSI and DIN flange styles come in many sizes, with either integral or remote electronics to display flow rate or total. Prices start at $1,752. OMEGA Engineering Inc.http://rbi.ims.ca/4928- 602
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.
