    Industrial actuators, sensors and multiplexers for factory and process automation are rapidly adopting embedded intelligence to enhance their capability and add value for end users. Fieldbus is the enabling technology that supports this transition, and consequently Fieldbus has become a very strategic area as competing groups push for market or political advantages that result from adoption of their preferred approach. This article introduces the main groups active in developing Fieldbus standards, their support groups and the current state of progress. View full abstract»

    The development and testing of a communications standard are both essential parallel elements in evolving a system that users and vendors will be happy to implement in products and systems. This is especially true for a Fieldbus standard where systems carry measurement and control data that can be critical to safe operation of the plant and people in the surrounding areas. Evidence of the robustness and reliable operation of systems designed to comply with the requirements of the standard is therefore essential. This article describes trials that are helping to provide such evidence. View full abstract»

    Organisations controlling industrial production processes need better support from measurements and actuation, in particular for maintenance and technical management of their automation systems, New 'intelligent' field devices with digital communications could support the additional user needs, provided that they are correctly conceived and developed. The EIAMUG project is endeavouring to open and promote a formal dialogue between automation equipment users and suppliers aimed at provision of equipment that supports the needs expressed by the users.

    Current hearing aids based on analogue technology are often unsuitable for correction of dysfunction and use in particular environments. This article describes a development using digital signal processing devices. Two devices have evolved: a bench resident master hearing aid and a body worn aid. An audiogram matching algorithm is used with the development and the devices have been tested using normal audiometric practice. View full abstract»
