Get Past Conventional Wisdom When Selecting a DC Motor Type Bill Schweber
When a new product needs a DC motor, the tendency is to think brushless, right? Probably so! But could this be a short-sighted approach?

The New, Autonomous Embedded World Marcel Consée
New life for the “Internet of Things” buzzword at Embedded World 2018: In combination with machine vision and various traditional embedded development methodologies, there’s a clear trend toward fully autonomous systems in many industries. Semi-autonomous systems are just the beginning….

Creating Faster, Safer, Cost-Effective Robots Using LIDAR Traci Browne
The gift of sight via light detection and ranging (LIDAR) has enabled engineers to move beyond the development of robots that complete simple tasks to robots that can take on increasingly complicated workloads in safer, faster, and more cost-effective ways than ever before.

Collaborative Robots: Combining Machine Muscle with Human Dexterity Steven Keeping
While industrial robots dominate—as the best option for low-volume, high-mix assembly in mass-manufacturing—in comparison to human dexterity, a new generation of lightweight robots promises to marry the best of man and machine.

Using Logic to Understand Programmable Logic Devices Paul Golata
Like human minds, computing devices require logic to process information. Programmable logic devices (PLDs) follow a specific set of instructions to control, compute, store, manage, and manipulate electronic information. Several categories of PLDs exist, providing design flexibility.

Which Hardware in the Loop (HITL) Scenario Works for You? Bill Schweber
Hardware in the Loop (HITL) is the only practical way to test complex system hardware and software, and two ways of implementing it exist. Each approach has pros and cons, but in either case, developing the HITL installation can be a task as large as developing the system itself.

Making Mathematical Sense of PID Controllers Mike Parks
PID controllers are a popular method for including a feedback as a mechanism to help efficiently control industrial processes. Short for “proportional, integrative, derivative,” PID controllers keep the output of a system constant based on user provided setpoint. Tuning the PID controller parameters, though, requires a bit of math to maximize efficiency and minimize adjustments and corrections based on feedback.

Flying Ostriches and Other New World Realities Explored David Fambrough
Have you seen the recent Samsung commercial where a curious ostrich suddenly finds itself wearing a Virtual Reality headset solely by accident, and how it is presented with the idea of flight for the first time? Inspired by a new reality, the ostrich runs and flails its wings until one day it magically takes flight. (Yes, many of us TV viewers and the other ostriches watched on in disbelief—captivated.) It’s truly amazing what new worlds of opportunity this technology brings. And it’s not limited to only gaming or enhancing television.

Adopting A Functional Approach To Control Cabinet Functional Design Mouser Staff
As more and more technology is deployed within industrial and commercial environments, there is an increasing need to safely and securely house all the various components that make up today’s control systems. Planning the design of a control cabinet according to equipment functions not only makes sense from the perspectives of accessibility, maintenance, and flow, but it also helps separate any equipment that might be susceptible to interference from other components.

Enterprise Drives Augmented Reality Demand Steven Keeping
While many things that Google comes up with seemingly turn to gold, Google Glass wasn’t one of them. In fact, according to Forbes magazine, the company’s augmented reality (AR) headset will go down in the annals of bad product launches. But the launch of “Glass Enterprise Edition” targets industrial workplaces and boasts several upgrades over the consumer product—including a better camera, faster microprocessor, improved Wi-Fi, and longer battery life—which offer new potential for the technology.
