OK, so now I'm viewing the slides on my work desktop PC and listening to the audio on my phone, so yes, it is clearly my company now blocking the audio. This is something new since the Basic MCU class a week and a half ago. I mention this since others may be able to use the same workaround.
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.
