REAL TIME COMPUTING AND COMMUNICATION
Real Time Computing (RTC) and Communication are terms referring to contexts where you need to guarantee the maximum computing performances and minimum latencies.
This is usually important in scientific and technical applications where timing is the main issue and a PLC-based approach is not enough.
In this field Microtecna can help customers with:
Definition and dimensioning of new high performance architectures from both the hardware and software points of view
Creation and optimization of custom real-time layers
Creation of optimized algorithms and protocols in order to guarantee the maximum data throughput and the minimum latency
Creation and maintenance of specialized applications able to perform calculations on tailored PCs, PLCs or Embedded Solutions
Microtecna Logistic Platform (MLP)
Technologies: WINDOWS, RDBMS, RTOS, SENSOR FUSION, POINT CLOUDS, KALMAN FILTERING, MOTION CONTROL, SAFETY, WIFI
Keywords: LOGISTICS, AGV, TRACEABILITY, PROCESS CONTROL, TRAFFIC CONTROL
A vast platform design and produced in order to manage complex AGV-based logistics processes.

Technologies: WINDOWS, RTOS, SENSORS, COMPUTER VISION, MOTION CONTROL, SAFETY
Keywords: SORTING, TRACEABILITY
Hybrid frameworks capable to manage scientific-tailored algorithms to sort object classes and dispatch them in apposite containers at very high frequencies.
These solution are composed of a Windows based RTOS where sensors’ data are acquired at very high speed and RTC operations are performed. These system communicate (in hard-real-time) with hi-performance PLCs that manage the sorting operations through motion control technologies and hi-speed I/Os. The PLCs are also provided with integrated and certified safety solutions.
Tyres Quality Control System
Technologies: WINDOWS, RDBMS, SENSOR FUSION, POINT CLOUDS, MOTION CONTROL, SAFETY, COMPUTER VISION
Keywords: QUALITY, TRACEABILITY, PROCESS CONTROL, TRAFFIC CONTROL, MES INTEGRATION, PDA
An hybrid (PC/PLC) solution to perform automatic in-depth visual analysis of tyres.
The system integrates with many rollers, robots and industrial vision devices and is tailored in order to guarantee the maximum analysis accuracy and minimum turn around time. All process data are stored on internal databases and the platform is interfaced with an external MES solution.
Control & Management of Aerospace Simulators
Technologies: IPC, PLC, MOTION CONTROL, FIELDBUS, SENSOR, ACTUATORS, SAFETY
Keywords: SIMULATOR, MACHINE CONTROL, CONDITION MONITORING, PDA
A hardware/software solution tailored to manage and control aerospace simulators.
Based on multiple technological layers (PLC/SAFE-PLC/IPC), this system manages multiple automation devices (handling systems, safety devices, …) to ensure the maximum safety and simulation quality.
The solution can be integrated with external simulation softwares.
The operators interact with the system using multiple GUIs and devices. Different sensors recognize operators presence and automatically manage safety and manual operations. The solution is integrated with an internal PDA module (developed by Microtecna) to ensure fully traceability of the production process and perform condition monitoring on each machine.
