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.
West Virginia University has received a $1 million award from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to prepare students for cybersecurity jobs with a project called "ACCESS," which cultivates cybersecurity experts through scholarships and education.
Think Again: Remote monitoring, sensors, analytics and real-time intelligence is helping those who manufacture, use, and repair motors and attached critical assets to avoid downtime with prescriptive maintenance technologies, says EASA and Plant Engineering research.
Rice University researchers are developing 2-D transition metal dichalcogenides, which could be useful for optoelectronic applications and quantum computing.
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.
A researcher from Rice University will examine the hurdles women face in STEM careers by examining their everyday work experiences in the profession.
Articles about digitizing reality, using the cloud for business, long battery life, making the IIoT work, and IIoT's effects on the motor business were Control Engineering’s five most clicked articles from August 12-18. Miss something? You can catch up here.
West Virginia University’s robotic drilling team won NASA’s Moon to Mars Ice & Prospecting Challenge for the second time in three years with the Mountaineer Ice Drilling Automated System III (MIDAS III).
Artificial intelligence (AI) is an efficient method of teaching an industrial robot new skills.
Researchers at MIT and several other institutions have developed an electrolyte for improving the efficiency and stability of supercapacitors while reducing their flammability.
Continuous asset optimization (CAO) combines smart manufacturing technologies with cutting edge statistical, data-driven and physics of failure modeling techniques.
