The automobile industry is becoming increasingly involved with cybernetics. Robots have been making cars for a while, but now cybernetic systems are becoming part of the cars. All new cars now contain a wide range of computers, sensors, actuators and displays. Examples of these would be; engine management systems, automatic headlights & wipers, traction control and ABS. All these devices are controlled using computers in the car. Cybernetics is used to get all this hardware to interact and function correctly.
Melting and quenching during RESET are essential to the operation of a phase change memory (PCM) device. This follow-up article explores the role of melting during threshold switching and the post-threshold switching conducting state prior to SET state crystallization. More..
