Overview: Can outsiders hack into your network? The factory floor is now connected to the outside world. While extended networks give companies powerful efficiency and opportunities for optimization, it also means that someone can crack the network. This opens up a whole mess of Pandora boxes. IT wants to create safety measures to prevent the intrusions of hackers and viruses. But that means shutting down the plant for the upgrades and patches. The control managers don't want the plant to shut down for network protection efforts. This webinar looks at solutions that work for both IT and control managers. Eric J. Byres, CTO and VP Engineering of Tofino Security joins Design News' Rob Spiegel to explore ways you can stay ahead of the hackers.

In a bid to boost the viability of lithium-based electric car batteries, a team at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has developed a chemistry that could possibly double an EV’s driving range while cutting its battery cost in half.
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.
