Robot with "human-like" vision Industrial Control DesignLine Blog 7/6/2009 1 comment With robots being outfitted with many different types of sensors, it's not surprising that human researchers are interested in replicating how we perceive the outside world.
Designing high-performance and power-efficient motor control systems Design How-To 7/2/2009 Post a comment This paper provides an overview of motor control design considerations, such as control of multiple motors, field-oriented control, power factor correction and sensorless control. It also addresses how today's microcontrollers (MCUs) bring even greater precision, power efficiency and reduced cost to a wide range of applications.
Motor efficiency depends upon power factor Design How-To 7/2/2009 1 comment Advances in motor control algorithms and cost-effective electronic components for implementing motor
drives are creating a revolution in virtually every electric motor market. Control of the power factor in an
efficient manner also means less lost energy, both in the motor and drive electronics.
Battle-hardened veterans of the electronics industry have heard of the “connected car” so often that they assume it’s a done deal. But do we really know what it takes to get a car connected and what its future entails? Join EE Times editor Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of movers and shakers in the connected car business. Executives from Cisco, Siemens and NXP will share ideas, plans and hopes for connected cars and their future. After the first 30 minutes of the radio show, our listeners will have the opportunity to ask questions via live online chat.
