Central to the Smart Factory in Industry 4.0 is the productive use of autonomous and collaborative robots that work symbiotically with each other and alongside human beings. Enabling this new breed of robots is an array of innovative sensors; sensors that provide precision limb movement, 3D vision and other sensing technologies to vastly improve a factory’s production output and quality. This article will focus on sensor technology that is enabling the realization of the smart factory robot. Download now.
Debugging an embedded system is one of the most time consuming and expensive activities that embedded software developers engage in. Survey results show that the average team spends 40% of a development cycle debugging their software! Developers can easily prevent, detect and eliminate defects to dramatically decrease the time spent troubleshooting which can accelerate their development, decrease costs and improve product reliability. In this session, we are going to examine several techniques that can be used to quickly detect defects. We will develop a robust process that attendees can follow and implement to decrease the time they spend debugging and spend more time innovating.
This session will utilize hands-on demonstrations using ST Microelectronics STM32, arm Keil MDK with ULINKplus and Percepio Tracealyzer 4 with source code being readily available for attendees.

Optical methods are among the most common approaches to biosensing for plants and animals. For example, remote sensing equipment from satellites routinely use reflectance quality to determine the greenness and stresses of vegetation, and pulse oximeters utilizing pulse plethysmograph (PPG) sensors are used to collect vital-sign data during doctors’ visits. Indeed, optical sensing is rather versatile, as these application examples indicate. Light, whether coherent or non-coherent, interacts with matter as it passes through and becomes absorbed, reflected, scattered, dispersed, or otherwise altered. And scientists can examine the magnitude and shape of light pulses, their spectral contents, and polarization to derive information about the analytes in the media that the light pulses have traversed.
