    Home automation is not a new concept. It has been around for a couple of decades in some form or other. Early commercial systems focused on the control of lighting, security, climate and appliances around the house. Adoption rates have hardly set the world alight, and the networks have tended to be quite sophisticated and, consequently, on the expensive side. While the industry is getting smarter ...

    The Burnett river dam is one of the largest roller compacted concrete dams built to date in Australia and is capable of holding in excess of 300,000 Mega-litres of water when full. The environmental implications of building a large dam are myriad and highly political in their nature. In this project a very high priority was placed on mitigating these issues throughout both the design and construct... View full abstract»

    Medical robots represent the natural evolution of orthopaedic surgical instrumentation and are here to stay. But, despite their obvious advantages to patients and surgeons, the imminent widespread uptake of this technology is by no means certain. The new methodology pioneered by the Acrobot team could help to assure their adoption and determine the exact nature of future medical robots. Contrary t... View full abstract»

    The first step in the journey towards an automated batch process is to gain an understanding of the concepts associated with batch control. The second concerns the need to install a control system consisting of a DCS or SCADA system and a batch management package. Once the design principles have been established, applying batch control requires the selection of products and a supplier as well as a... View full abstract»

    Graphical modelling and simulation environments can increasingly support an end-to-end tool flow for developing control systems. Simulink is used to both model systems and then produce code for prototype hardware, in some cases going further by using tools to generate software suitable for the production system. Automatic code generation (ACG) greatly improves the reliability and speed of the codi... View full abstract»
