Developments to watch: Web-based HMI
Web-based operator interface systems for mobile devices (smartphones and tablets) as well as PCs and high-definition TVs (HDTVs) are among recent Control Engineering developments to watch.
Web-based operator interface systems are among recent Control Engineering developments to watch. The Opto 22 groov system offers a secure, easy-to-use development environment for users to create an operator interface for mobile devices (smartphones and tablets) as well as PCs and high-definition TVs (HDTVs).
Once deployed, the operating system doesn’t matter. The Opto 22 groov human-machine interface (HMI) runs in a browser, scaling appropriately for the device. Control Engineering research shows that mobility, system integration, and security are large concerns among subscribers. I’ve seen several demonstrations, and this system addresses all three.
It will be interesting to watch productivity advance as organizations use tools like this to get information to the right people at the right time to make better decisions. The URL provides images, tells more about what it is, why it is useful, and how to get started. http://groov.com
