@"it was difficaul to get the GUIs working because of a slow response to keypress."
Thsi is a classic HMI consideration -- the HMI must NOT be frustrating to use -- and in th ecase of modern HMIs, if you want to use fancy 3D graphics, make sore you have the processing power to support them without impacting the respoinsiveness of the system
Are they robots or androids? We're not exactly sure. Each talking, gesturing Geminoid looks exactly like a real individual, starting with their creator, professor Hiroshi Ishiguro of Osaka University in Japan.
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.
