    Technology has grown so complex and specialized that no one person possesses the necessary knowledge and experience to know all that is needed. Those professionals that are tasked with managing the design and life-cycle development of today's complex systems and products can only achieve their goal by managing at the interface of both people and technology. These interface experts are known as sys... View full abstract»

    A virtual instrument alone is nonsensical. Measuring a voltage or a current with a multi-meter is much simpler, faster, and cheaper than using a virtual measurement environment. A dedicated instrument can perform more accurate and reliable measures than any virtual instrument. On the other hand, if a measurement is a combination of different data, if it has to be mathematically manipulated, or tra... View full abstract»

    In certain cases, due to such high precision of geographical position estimation, there problems connected with the accuracy of systems for the projection of the globe convex surface to the two-dimensional surface of a chart emerge. When using DGPS, one should pay closer attention if the chart datum is compliant with GPS. Although DGPS can increase the precision of the SPS several times, the accur... View full abstract»

    One of the problems with instrumentation systems is the interconnection between the multiple devices with different communication protocols. Exacerbating this problem are two typical requirements of interconnection: minimize cabling cost and avoid degradation of the signal during transmission. Cabling cost can be reduced through several multidrop communication systems: industrial local area networ... View full abstract»

    This paper reviews an experiment conducted by Dr. Wistrom and Dr. A.V.M. Khachatourian who were searching for a workable general solution to three-body particle interactions. The theory they put forth is that an asymmetric electrostatic charge distribution among three or more spherical conductive objects will cause a constant torque to be expressed as a direct consequence of the Coulomb force and ...

    As you may have observed, various people in any group bring diverse gifts to a project. Some folks tend to be very strategic in their thinking while others get into the smallest of details. Some engineers are focused necessarily on "making it work," while a manager will be watching the cost through perhaps a more tactical or even strategic perspective. A lot of conflict can occur when one consider... View full abstract»

    The IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement (I&M) Society surveyed its membership during the summer of 2003 to clarify IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Magazine's role and purpose. One prominent result was the need for tutorials on I&M. The response to our survey heavily favoured a regular feature in the magazine. Each article focuses on a different concern. Its purpose is to help folks at all le... View full abstract»
