Smart Machines Make the Grade for Control Applications
Date / Time: Wednesday, July 24, 2013, Available On Demand
Overview: 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? Thatís where the ďsmartĒ 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 whatís possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
