Recording and analyzing human motion is transforming fields as disparate as sports science, computer animation and medical rehabilitation. The Moven motion capture suit from Xsens Motion Technologies records full-body human motion in a broad range of environments, not just labs. Its 16 sensors, which include two accelerometers and three gyroscopes from Analog Devices’ iMEMS line, can be located anywhere on the body, simplifying setup. The suit measures 6 degrees of freedom gathered 100 times per sec, then sent via a wireless link. Direct measurement of acceleration and angular velocity simplifies internal force and momentum calculations so more data can be captured and analyzed.
On Memorial Day, Americans remember the sacrifices the US armed forces have made, and continue to make, in service to the country. All of us should also consider the developments in technological capabilities and equipment over the years that contribute to the success of our military operations.
In order to keep in line with safety protocols, industrial networks need to be filtered in a semantic way so that only information related to diagnostics is flowing back to the vendor and that any communications that could be used for remote machine operations are suppressed.
Advanced visualization can depict an entire plant in motion, while also detailing an individual workstation. Individual products can be rendered different for each discipline involved — marketing, engineering, or suppliers.
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.
