Preh Automotive Human-Machine Interface (HMI) (http://rbi.ims.ca/4911-545). To reduce the number of driver controls for vehicle interior functions, Preh engineers designed a flexible human-machine interface (HMI) consisting of a control knob, programmable buttons, and a touch pad display. Pushing, rotating, and tilting the centrally-located knob selects specific functions, such as air conditioning or seat position. Once the buttons' functions are assigned based on the driver or passenger's selection, a colored LED illuminates the appropriate icon. The touch pad provides input for the navigation system. The LEDs and LED driver IC for the HMI are selected based on the car manufacturers' requirements, which vary from bright for daylight visibility to a more subdued level.
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.
