Is there a way to fail over to another hex file or another image (perhaps the last known good image) if BootApplication() fails?
@N3WWN: Yes..It's a simple matter of programming :-) For simplicity, I loaded a single .hex file to the microSD. You can have multiple files on the microSD all with differing images.
Instead of just collecting the one expected file, you could scan for them all and select the one you wish to load. If BootApplication() failed, you have had a catastrophic error occur and the NUKE button (ABORT) would have to be brought into play.
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.
