The PCB-1185 Series of low-profile, in-line, direct-view indicators allows mounting of LEDs over RJ-45 jacks without the use of light pipe modules. Mounted at a right angle, the LEDs are targeted for use as status indicators in modem, telecommunication, and network applications. The wide-viewing, highly visible rectangular LEDs are configured in units of two LEDs per housing. Each housing can be configured in colors including orange; ultra red or blue; or high-efficiency red, green, or yellow.
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.
