Open Access research exploring new frontiers in aerospace engineering...

Strathprints makes available Open Access scholarly outputs by the Department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering at Strathclyde, which includes an emphasis on air and space research. The Advanced Space Concepts Laboratory (ASCL), the Future Air-Space Transportation Technology Laboratory (FASTTlab) and the Intelligent Computational Engineering Laboratory (ICElab) specialise in this work.

The ASCL undertakes frontier research on visionary space systems, delivering radically new approaches to space systems engineering. Meanwhile, FASTTlab seeks to revolutionise the global air-space transportation systems and infrastructure. ICElab develops advanced research on artificial and computational intelligence techniques with particular focus on optimisation, optimal control, uncertainty-based multidisciplinary design optimisation and machine learning applied to the design and control of complex engineering systems.

Abstract

The microprocessor is ideally suited to automating the collection of data, the control of processes and the measurement of important parameters in industry. A number of applications are presented here, where development and research work is carried out using a microcomputer made up of a Z80 microprocessor with additional circuit boards. The applications are in the areas of data acquisition, control and measurement of variables.
