  • Will microengineering affect your business

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):93 - 97
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (501 KB)

    Microengineering technology is leaving the research laboratories and has come of age. The article gives a flavour of its benefits, opportunities, and applications. It also discusses how industry can bring onboard and incorporate this important strategic technology into its products. Microengineering enables: the production of smaller, lighter, and faster versions of existing mechanical devices, wi... View full abstract»

  • Prototyping environment for digital signal processing systems

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):83 - 92
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (866 KB)

    The growing worldwide interest in exploiting programmable digital signal processors (DSPs) in telecommunication applications and systems has established the need for a prototyping environment. This environment comprises various computer aided software and hardware tools to meet the requirements of the development process, including specification, algorithm simulation, analysis, implementation and ...

    Talk of networks, and most people immediately think of the sending and receiving of data-anywhere from the individual factory or office, right through to national and worldwide communications. But the benefits of networks are not solely about data. Control of equipment can be transformed by moving to a network based system. The advantages of using network based systems are vividly illustrated by a... View full abstract»

  • Technical approaches to real-time control based on transputers

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):75 - 78
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (320 KB)

    An important application of modern microcomputer systems is in the area of real time control. The transputer is a novel RISC microcomputer that provides a few of the facilities which may be obtained in a general microcomputer. The various kinds of real time control methods based on transputers are investigated. Some practical real time control techniques are proposed according to the properties of... View full abstract»

  • Soft computing methodologies and their fusion in mechatronic products

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):68 - 72
    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (330 KB)

    The concept of soft computing is introduced and its three basic constituents, namely fuzzy logic, neural networks and probabilistic reasoning, are reviewed. The article then discusses how they can be fused to a better advantage. Some application examples are described with particular emphasis on mechatronic products.<> View full abstract»

  • Trajectory optimisation to minimise antenna pointing error

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):61 - 67
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (458 KB)

    The problem of tracking polar orbiting satellites which pass close to zenith is examined. Modification of the antenna trajectory is used to minimise the pointing error which results from the velocity limited servo mechanisms of real antennas. Simulation results are presented to illustrate this method.<> View full abstract»
