    A system is described for enhancing the performance of an image processing framestore. It uses the Texas Instruments TMS32010 digital signal processor, and combines the virtues of fast execution time and ease of programmability, while in no way interfering with the ability of the host computer itself to access image data held in the framestore. Hardware and software aspects of the implementation a... View full abstract»

    Structures and algorithms for implementation of digital filters are described which enable highperformance controllers using 8 bit microprocessors to be designed. Using these techniques a typical controller for an electromechanical system incorporating two feedback signals, a phase advance compensator, a notch filter and a proportional-plus-integral term can operate at up to 750 Hz sampling freque...

    The design of an efficient and cost-effective software system for a process control workstation is presented. The workstation can operate either in stand-alone mode or as a control module in a distributed control hierarchy. Among its key features is a user-friendly operator interface allowing dynamic and menu-driven definition of all system parameters. View full abstract»

    The paper studies two implementations of an observer-based output feedback controller designed to control a third-order single-input single-output linear plant. The first controller is a direct implementation of the observer equations, requiring two inputs. The second controller is an equivalent cascade version of the observer-based controller, requiring only one input. The cancellation of the obs... View full abstract»

    A binary decision controller is a programmable logic device whose use falls between that of hard-wired logic and microcomputer controllers. The paper explores the use of this type of controller for a number of simple tasks. View full abstract»

    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3174 KB)

    The paper describes the initial stages and immediate aims of an engineering project to control a tyre tread production line. The line is part of the Avon Tyres pic plant at Melksham, Wiltshire. The paper specifically describes the modelling, automatic control, hardware and software developments that are (and will be) used as a basis for the continuation of the project. Ultimately, the technology d... View full abstract»
