QUESTION - If you are in a situation where you need to get a prototype out IMMEDIATElY - it doens't have to be efficient, it just has to be working tomorrow - how do you di it? What hardware do you use? How do you program it?
And in this situation, is hardware or software your primary concern?
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 radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
