Radio signals reach pilots on board an aircraft through the "radar dome", the rounded nose of the aircraft. But if errors occur during the production of this "nose"- tiny foreign particles, drops of water or air bubbles-this can impede radio traffic. In the future, a non-destructive testing system will identify just such imperfections during production.
For more than half a century, plug gages have been a crucial part of maintaining tolerances of the highest standard and have been at the core of quality control applications across a variety of end-user applications.
According to a recent Quality reader survey, 97% of respondents said they used plug gages on the shop floor. Learn more about this classic gage. For more information, read this article in our May issue.
By developing a controller based on LabVIEW, National Instruments achieved stable, efficient, human-like bipedal walking on an underactuated robot through human-inspired feedback control strategies. The key benefits of this solution include reduced control complexity; reduced power requirements and minimal sensing requirements
