Value for me this week has been learning CPP tricks. I've always used it, but have never pushed it to its max.
Biggest hit for me this week is: #define PRT_DEBUG(a) printf a W.O.W. - My code is filled with multi-line debug output, which screws readability. I'm going to use this to reduce all that crap to one-liners.
Very nice to get something out of a class I can put to use immediately. Thanks, Gary!
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.
