Mastering Distributed Control with Fully Integrated Systems

Large multi-axis or multi-process machines often benefit from additional controllers operating local processes while a main controller coordinates the efforts for the entire machine. In these cases, the additional controllers may need enough processing power to handle multi-axis motion as well as localized I/O.

Good Data Gone Bad-Why it is important to recognize bad engineering data before using it for durability and performance analysis.

Collecting good time series data is not a trivial task. This presentation will shed some light on causes and examples of bad data, and what separates good data from bad data. We will explain ways to recognize bad data, and suggest best testing and analysis practices to ensure the best possible engineering decisions are being made.

Reducing Engineering Error and Design Disruptions: Exploring Calculation Software Tools

Performing and understanding calculations is a core responsibility of engineers across every discipline. These detailed calculations impact the beginning stages of design to determine if new concepts are feasible, at the middle stage of design to smooth out the finer details of products and to help with part assembly, and when designs are mature for verification and validation purposes.

Increased Spatial Resolution Lidars and 3D Robotic Vision

The Lunar Orbiting Laser Altimeter (LOLA) on the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) launched in 2009 was NASA's first multi-beam lidar. LOLA has produced unprecedented topographic maps of the Lunar surface. LOLA used a Diffractive Optical Element (DOE) to produce five beams from a single laser for enhanced topographic spatial resolution.

Lean Manufacturing for the Automotive Industry and Beyond Using Optical Metrology

Optical Metrology applications provide for advanced industrial measurements and real-time test monitoring. ARAMIS, DIC (Digital Image Correlation), and PONTOS (photogrammetry) are critical tools for non-contact, full-field measurement of 3D deformation and the true strain tensors. This technology is highly effective for model validation, allowing load frame data to be directly used by CAE engineers for advanced material properties and full-field structural response.

Resilient and Corrosion-Proof Rolling Element Bearings Made from Superelastic Ni-Ti Alloys for Mechanical Applications

Mechanical components (bearings, gears, mechanisms) typically utilize hardened construction materials to minimize wear and attain long life. In such components, loaded contact points (e.g., meshing gear teeth, bearing balls-raceway contacts) experience high contact stresses. The combination of high hardness and high elastic modulus often leads to damaging contact stress and denting, particularly during transient overload events such as shock impacts that occur during the launching of space vehicles or the landing of aircraft.
