The Fluid Controls Institute has released the new FCI Standard 99-2, Regulator Capacity, which spells out guidelines for establishing and reporting regulator capacities for use by manufacturers, users, specifiers, and approval bodies. The goal, says FCI, is to promote consistent presentation of regulator capacities across the industry. For more information on this standard and other standards published by the Fluid Controls Institute, go to www.fluidcontrolsinstitute.org.
When you think of the DARPA Robotics Challenge, you may imagine complex humanoid contraptions made of metal and wires that move like a Terminator Series T-90. But what actually happened at the much-vaunted event was something just a bit different.
Traditional dev kits are based on a manufacturer’s microcontroller, radio module, or sensor device. The idea is to aid the design engineer in developing his or her own IoT prototype as quickly as possible. A not-so-traditional IoT development kit released by Bosch aims to simplify IoT prototyping even further.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
