The STP conversion tool is a free application for making quick speed, torque and power computations. Enter two of the three values and the tool produces the third. The calculator can also be set to convert speed to rpm or rad/s. It can also do torque/oz-inch, lb-inch, lb-ft, N-cm or N-m conversions, and power to watts or HP conversions. It can be downloaded for free at the company's website.
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.
