This golf course management system uses a full-color, 10.4-inch interactive cart-mounted screen and Global Positioning System (GPS) location technology. In addition to knowing the golf cart's position, the system shows golfers the precise distance to the pin and allows golfers to order food and beverages and communicate with the ranger or the Pro Shop. The system runs on Applied Data Systems (ADS) Graphics Client Plus with the Intel 206 MHz StrongARM SA1110 processor. The RISC-based single-board computer delivers 235 MIPS at 206 MHz and consumes less than 450 mW at 2.0V/206 MHz.
Most machine design engineers will survey existing component manufacturers for standard linear guide products, limiting what they can do with their designs. Using extruded aluminum profile guides can customize machine designs while shrinking the bill of materials.
Practically all electronic devices today contain metals that may
be coming from conflict-ravaged African countries. And political pressures will increasingly influence how these minerals are sourced and used in products.
