    Provides an introduction to the topic of safety-critical control systems for those engineers and managers who are skilled in the disciplines of computer-based control, but have not had to face the additional engineering problems which arise when equipment is crucial to the protection and preservation of human life. Increasingly, control engineers are using computers and complex real-time software ... View full abstract»

    Reviews the application of solar energy technology in Cyprus and presents an energy analysis, including the use of solar energy, in the island. Cyprus has no conventional sources of energy and is dependent on imported oil. However, its geographical position is such that it is one of the countries where the potential for solar energy utilisation is very high. Cyprus began manufacturing solar water ...

    Fault tolerance, the ability of a system to survive in the presence of faults, is a major research area in avionics. With the increasing use of active control technology (ACT) in military aircraft to allow reductions in wing and tail area giving greater manoeuvrability it is now the case that many aircraft are unflyable without automatic stabilisation functions. If a controller fails even for a ve... View full abstract»

    Transputers make it possible to build boards or systems with more performance than is conceivable with any single processor, however powerful. The architecture of the transputer makes a single transputer especially powerful for embedded or real-time applications, and cost-effective for add-ons to existing computers. Transputers, or boards based on transputers, are particularly easy to build into m... View full abstract»

    Electronic data interchange is examined as a means of engineering the flow of information and control between trading organisations. Many existing applications of electronic data interchange are concerned with the simple replacement of paper communication but, by the imaginative marshalling of human and technical resources, the technique can simplify trading relationships and support new styles of...

    Agriculture and the production of food are often seen as relatively low-technology areas. In reality they represent some of the most challenging environments for the application of computer systems. This article reports on the development of a system for grading vegetables and fruit. Because the unit value of even high-quality vegetables is low, they must be inspected at high speeds to make a mach... View full abstract»
