    One of the biggest shake-ups ever in telecommunications is just around the corner, with the combined issue of new systems and infrastructure appearing and old ones being phased out. The changes affect just about everyone, but the utility and process industries experience a paradigm shift in the way they manage data - both in terms of protocols and transportation. For many years, control and automa... View full abstract»

    While robots have moved from the realm of science fiction to a myriad of real-life uses, the potential of the 'hard-bodied' robots of the 21st century remains limited by their stiff construction and lack of flexibility. A group of researchers at Tufts University has launched a multidisciplinary initiative focused on the science and engineering of a new class of robots that are completely soft-bodi...

    GM's Shanghai facility is designed from the ground up with a control system built from scratch. Not every facility has the luxury of designing a production control system from the ground up. The majority of automotive OEMs and suppliers have plants with legacy production and control systems that are upgraded piecemeal. Outmoded controllers running on proprietary networks mean that production contr... View full abstract»

    PC technology helps keep the eye on the ball when it comes to outside broadcasting. Technology based on the PC acts as the core of the outside broadcast van for high-definition television (HDTV). A compact industrial PC calculates the video signals' path through the complex controller system in next to no time, and thereby assures that the right camera image is always shown on the right monitor.
