SICK's Inspector Viewer is a compact,
real-time, touch-screen monitor for advanced monitoring and trending
capabilities for Inspector Vision Sensors.
get information about multiple inspections in order to improve quality and
throughput. The results of each of the detailed inspection tools can be
monitored for immediate and visual feedback to line operators and users can see
live images in real-time without having to connect a PC. Images can be saved to
on-board compact flash drive with room to store up to 23,000 images.

In a bid to boost the viability of lithium-based electric car batteries, a team at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has developed a chemistry that could possibly double an EV’s driving range while cutting its battery cost in half.
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.
