Using next generation embedded control and monitoring tools for building smarter machines seminar

August 2015 News

In an effort to build smarter machines and manufacturing equipment, machine builders are finding ways to improve their control architectures with embedded systems that help them optimise performance and implement advanced control and monitoring tasks.

This seminar will provide insight into the challenges machine builders face today, demonstrate proven methods and solutions, and explore the latest technologies and advances that are helping innovative machine builders get ahead of the competition, including:

 -   Accuracy and flexibility through tight vision (including 3D) and motion integration.

 -   The role of robotics in smart machines.

 -   Optimising energy efficiency.

 -   Machine monitoring.

 -   Integrating .m, .mdl and real-time hardware for math, signal processing, and controls.

 -   Utilising a unified tool-chain for design, prototyping and deployment.

 -   The impact of graphical system design and customizable off-the-shelf hardware.

Additional topics discussed include environmental considerations, analysis tools, high-performance processing devices, network and data storage and simulation and modelling tools.

Who should attend this seminar? Engineers and scientists responsible for or exposed to monitoring or control of industrial or high performance machines, including machine builders/designers, maintenance and reliability engineers, process and control engineers, technology managers.
