Northwestern Engineering researchers have developed two new algorithms that can infer the topology of a network by observing the behavior of the individual nodes (such as neurons) in real time, which could help improve swarm robotics, which use collaborative manipulation to work together.
As industry starts to engage in digital transformation programs, engineers tasked with managing this change are running into several challenges.
The Smart Factory Web Testbed aims to set up a marketplace for industrial production that comprises a web-based platform to allow factories to offer production capabilities and share resources to improve order fulfillment in a more flexible way than is currently possible with available technology.
The IIC accelerator program is designed to stimulate Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) adoption to help information technology (IT) and operations technology (OT) users solve real problems they face in their businesses.
