Embedded Technology Forum for Machine Designers is a free machine design forum. The event provides an overview of mechatronics embedded system design technologies for increasing innovation and lowering development cost and risk. It explore techniques for mechatronics-oriented design with SolidWorks, COSMOSMotion, National Instruments LabVIEW, and Wind River VxWorks; virtual machine prototyping and electromechanical simulation; sensing and actuation; graphical programming for processors, FPGAs, and digital signal processing; and reference architectures for combining control, monitoring, and data logging in a single embedded design.
The forum will be held on the following dates in the corresponding cities with noted keynote speakers:
- June 5 – Chicago, Ill. – keynote speaker: Tim Dehne, NI senior vice president of R&D
- June 14 – Santa Clara, Calif. – keynote speaker: Dr. James Truchard, NI president, CEO and cofounder
The Embedded Technology Forum for Machine Designers targets engineering managers and designers of industrial machinery, equipment, vehicles or other electromechanical devices. The event, supported by prominent engineering magazines Design News and Control Engineering, includes an industry expert panel discussion, technical training and hands-on sessions. The forum brings together attendees with engineers and industry experts to explore cutting-edge design technologies and discuss the business challenges, opportunities and technology factors impacting modern machine designers. Attendees will learn about the latest mechatronics design automation techniques resulting from collaboration between vendors of mechanical and electrical design tool. Attendees also will learn methods to reduce risk, get better results from shrinking design teams, build stronger relationships with customers through remote support and service, protect intellectual property assets and add high value technical features to differentiate their machines.
