As asked by M. Jeff Bier, I will post my question prior to the presentation. I am working in machine vision, mainly developing PC based systems. In our team we have already worked with some embedded systems like smart cameras (CPU and DSP based). We currently use GPGPU for high performance processing and I am wondering if there are GPU embedded technologies available in the market? (The only one I came across was from GE Intelligent Platforms that targets the defense sector)
New versions of BASF's Ecovio line are both compostable and designed for either injection molding or thermoforming. These combinations are becoming more common for the single-use bioplastics used in food service and food packaging applications, but are still not widely available.
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.
