Slide deck appears to be okay to me -- a continuation of the discussion yesterday in a larger sense. It DOES seem the title of this course could be "Principles of (interface, etc) Design".
What ~I~ would like to find out, more re infra-structure here -- what does Digi-Key and DesignNews mean when they say "qualified attendees"? Do they need to see a copy of my diploma? A current pay stub? A utility bill? My driver's license? "qualified" in what sense?
Among other things, I ask because I was an attendee of a previous series which promised a Starbucks gift card - and have not seen 'hide-nor-hair' of that. I wouldn't mind being "qualified" to perhaps win a tablet (is that JUST for attending TODAY's lecture, or attending this lecture all week?)
If "qualified" equates to "attends every lecture this week", well then tell me that. Then I will know and/or can weigh my relative priorities and tradeoffs.
Let's "collaborate" on this. Maybe "iterate" and "elucidate", too?
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.
