I have an application question that considers speed differences. Say you are using an HD camera, and a DSP to convert the video to MPEG-4 on the fly. You need to send this video to an external location over a bandwidth limited link. Obviously, the file system (say NTFS) that stores the MPEG files needs to keep up, but the transmission can be done slower and later. Would you use a seperate file system and storage to transfer MPEG files to a "comm" file for transmission. Maybe a second physical system all by itself associated with an RF link? Thanks

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.
