NIST advances quantum computing News & Analysis 7/8/2009 Post a comment Quantum computers have inched closer to reality after the National Institute of Standards and Technology researchers demonstrated the ability to read and write individual quantum bits using a combination of microwaves and polarized lasers.
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.
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.
