    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (144 KB)

    Production of polyethylene, the most used polymer in the world, typically involves flow streams containing gas and liquid, but inability to measure this two-phase flow accurately has been the source of myriad production problems. The difficulties involved with two-phase flow measurement have been linked to process interruptions, poor product quality wasted materials, and higher energy costs, any o... View full abstract»

  • Flexible robotic arm takes on multiple tasks

    Publication Year: 2004
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (97 KB)

    Researchers at Staffordshire University believe they have achieved a world breakthrough in robotics with the Flexibot, a multijointed robotic arm. We are designing the Flexibot to move independently around the house like a caterpillar, clamping itself to a series of prearranged portals placed along the wall, ceiling or floor. Flexibot could be applied to a multitude of tasks that would be of benef... View full abstract»

  • Capacitive proximity sensors 'break the rules'

    Publication Year: 2004
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (88 KB)

    The standard capacitive switch has electrodes arranged in the sensor head that form a measurement capacity The field mainly of spherical or semi spherical nature is influenced by the proximity of material with a dielectric constant >1. This alteration of capacity is converted to a signal that can be evaluated, by a special oscillator circuit. View full abstract»

    Publication Year: 2004, Page(s):15 - 18
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (287 KB)

    The importance of image capturing and illumination notwithstanding - the evaluation software as the 'byte-cast representation' of the inspection strategy is the heart of every vision system. A particular problem of evaluation software is that its development takes place through continuous interaction with external constraints like the characteristics of the test pieces, imaging and illumination co...

  • Vision enabled robots have 'eyes' for you [industrial robots]

    Publication Year: 2004, Page(s):19 - 20
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (157 KB)

    Robots have traditionally been taken up more by large manufacturing firms, which could invest in both the technology and a supporting infrastructure. But, as costs continue to fall, the technology itself is changing in ways that mean robotics can benefit almost any manufacturing environment. As well as advances in robot mechanics and developments in their controllers, the integration of robots wit... View full abstract»
