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.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
