This tool detects the optical profile in high-gloss surfaces with a laser light source, and an extra infrared LED measures the same structure spectrum (0.1-30 mm) on medium-gloss surfaces. It uses CCD camera technology to measure dullness, and can give information on image-forming qualities of the surface caused by structure & 0.1 mm. It can be easily used with one hand on flat or curved areas. It is small and lightweight, and has a scroll wheel, large display, selectable scales and scan lengths, full statistics with saving in selectable memories, a USB port to transmit data to a PC, and a software auto-chart that organizes files for sample id, offers data management with Access databasing, and produces standard QC reports in Excel.
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.
