  • The use of Smalltalk-80 for the rapid prototyping of advanced control systems

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):2/1 - 2/3
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (160 KB)

    The authors describe their personal experiences in developing an advanced control system using the object oriented programming (OOP) language Smalltalk-80. The emphasis is placed on the use of the language rather than on the details of the solution. They begin by describing the problem being simulated: an intelligent system identification supervisor (ISIS) for adaptive control applications. The ch... View full abstract»

  • A camera vision process control system for the manufacture of rivets

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):7/1 - 710
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (268 KB)

    The authors detail the object-oriented design of a camera vision process control system for the manufacture of rivets. The process control project is described, the software design and implementation is covered and finally the authors comment on the experience of developing an object oriented design for the first time. The software design covered is the description of the object model, with the re... View full abstract»

  • Object-oriented development of real-time monitoring and control systems: a case study

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):3/1 - 3/3
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (216 KB)

    The authors report and evaluate the experience of applying object-oriented techniques to the development of a real-time system for monitoring and control of remote sites. The system which is currently installed at several sites in the UK and elsewhere in Europe also includes database management functions and an interactive operator interface. The authors focus on the object-oriented aspects of the... View full abstract»

    Automation of any track transport system also means providing a traffic management system (TMS) that meets the needs of both passengers and the operating company. A TMS usually comprises a distributed interconnected network of computers, controlling and supervising the vehicle operations. Such applications often encompass multiple, co-operative software components that execute across a distributed... View full abstract»

    The Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Brighton has been directing research at improving manufacturing flexibility within the electronics industry, particularly within surface mount technology (SMT) production. One of the areas in which much potential exists, is the development of sensory systems that are able to intelligently control all elements within the manufacturing en... View full abstract»

    Object-oriented modelling and design is a new way of thinking about problems, using models organised around real-world concepts. The authors present an object-oriented approach to software development, based on modelling objects from a fire protection environment. The model is then used to build a language-independent design, organized around those objects. The authors also describe some object mo... View full abstract»

    The central concept of the work described is that a database can be created which contains all the information about a complex engineering system, specifically a building management system (BMS). This database will be updated and modified throughout the system lifecycle. Due to the large amount of information required to be entered into these databases, all data entry is done through graphical int... View full abstract»

    Tactile sensing is not simply the ability to detect that a contact has occurred between an object and a manipulator, but encompasses a more comprehensive ability to grasp and identify shape, surface features, material features, force and slippage etc. As technology progresses, sensors able to detect these features have become a reality, and the problem of integrating the information from such sens...
