So another way to think of AMP can be understood with an example in the hardware world where one defines a mechanical or electrical interface, and all components are designed to meet that standard. Think the Common Berthing Mechanism on the space station. In AMP, that interface would be the serial comm with its electrical and protocol standards... And this interface offers the perfect point for testing. One can look toward the outside world and check the data coming in, or feed synthetic data toward the CPU
In an age of globalization and rapid changes through scientific progress, two of our societies' (and economies') main concerns are to satisfy the needs and wishes of the individual and to save precious resources. Cloud computing caters to both of these.
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.
