Interfaces and methods used in object-oriented industrial programming (OOIP) help deliver productivity of object-oriented programming (OOP) without the complexity. Because plants and equipment are assembled from objects, it’s logical that their control programming should be, too.
A University of Michigan aerospace engineer is working on high-fidelity simulations for an experimental propulsion system called a rotating detonation engine, which could help supercomputers better simulate complex physics as well as create more efficient aircraft engines.
Stanford University researchers have has built an integrated circuit to control the flow of light through a diamond chip, which could help create quantum processors that are faster than the fastest electronic computers today.
