A personal board of directors is a broader version of a mentorship with many people assisting your engineering career journey from a variety of viewpoints. See four ways to begin.
Case study: Collaborative robots at a thermal wrap manufacturing company deliver a zero-defect rate while doubling production output. Installation, integration and use has been a do-it-yourself (DIY) project.
Collect usable data as the first step toward effective analysis.
Companies should be looking to benefit from the potential of technologies such as artificial intelligence and edge computing for business success and competitive advantage.
A researcher from Rice University will examine the hurdles women face in STEM careers by examining their everyday work experiences in the profession.
Recent technology innovations have made IT/OT convergence a necessity and a reality, but complexities arise from a short-term view of plant data and connectivity needs. Operational technology (OT) users can mitigate this by working collaboratively with information technology (IT) to develop an implementation plan that addresses complexities and limitations for a positive future outlook.
Robots, according to a paper from the University of Birmingham, will need to think in the right context as economies embrace automation, connectivity and digitization and as levels of human-robot interaction increase.
Researchers at the University of Washington used machine learning to develop a system that monitors factory and warehouse workers and tell them, in real time, how risky their behaviors are.
The University of Arkansas received a five-year, $4.63 million award from the National Science Foundation to recruit, educate and train the next generation of cybersecurity professionals.
West Virginia University researchers are seeking ways to quench the thirst of the nation’s power plants in a more cost-effective, environmentally-friendly fashion.
Hydraulically-powered grabs are designed for tough working environments and regular maintenance and repair is essential to keep the business running smoothly.
A submerged system developed by MIT researchers uses the vibration of piezoelectric materials to generate power and send and receive data.
Safety is paramount with collaborative robots and they can be made safer with machine vision and artificial intelligence technology.
