Build an Arduino-based 4-Channel Data Logger

Publish Date: January 10, 2018
In many applications data collection is remote and Wi-Fi and Internet are not available. In addition and in lieu of other backup opportunities, a simple on-demand logger would be a nice resource for custom applications that can accommodate the simple handshake protocol and have a serial output available to be saved into the removable SD card.

Publish Date: January 9, 2018
Three major automotive suppliers announced this week that they are teaming up to create an autonomous car vision platform that can be customized to serve the needs of any vehicle.

IoT Smart Sensors Use Cloud for Low Power Motor Condition Monitoring

Publish Date: January 9, 2018
Condition monitoring, a technology that has been slowly moving forward for a number of years, is reaching toward its potential with new solutions for low voltage motors. Monitoring the operating condition of motors has obvious availability and productivity benefits, enabling a new level of preventive maintenance. But now the combination of compact sensors, cloud connectivity, and application software is creating a new level of operating data transparency.

Adaptive Design Offer New Concept for Packaging OEMs

Publish Date: January 8, 2018
New concepts in packaging machinery design and development, using base machine modules that can be configured to support “batch size of one” production goals, are incorporating a combination of integrated hardware and software solutions. The result is new concept for machines that have a greater ability to changeover on-the-fly by deploying a common base machine platform designed to be more readily adaptable to constant size and format changes.

MIT Researchers Find Melting Hinders Some Sprayed Metal Coatings

Publish Date: January 8, 2018
Since the dawn of metalworking, the conventional wisdom has been that to join metals, there must be localized melting at the two places to be joined. In the case of metal coatings, manufacturers have long relied on a process similar to spray painting to apply metal to surfaces. Despite the ubiquity of the technique, no one was ever quite certain what happened at the particle level when metal coatings were sprayed, as the process is so fast. Understanding this could lead to new ways to apply coatings or 3D print using metals.

The Digital Twin Can Improve Production and Reduce Downtime

Publish Date: January 4, 2018
A digital twin is a virtual replica of a physical asset. But it’s a lot more than that. The digital twin is a combination of IoT, machine learning, and AI put together to create a replica of your physical machine. It will analyze and predict the impact of actions on that machine.

Artificial Organ Models 3D-Printed with Lifelike Characteristics

Publish Date: January 4, 2018
3D printing already is being used in medicine to provide physician guidance for how to treat actual patients by practicing on prototype models fabricated using this process. Now this practice being taken to the next level thanks to a team of researchers led by the University of Minnesota, who have 3D-printed lifelike artificial-organ models that mimic the exact anatomical structure, mechanical properties, and look and feel of real organs.
