  • This Month's Topic: AdvancedHMI: A new paradigm in automation controls.

    The integration of user facing software with traditional automation controls has always been an expensive, specialized area. Software systems referred to within the automation industry as SCADA and HMI are normally closed loop systems that use specialized software that, at most, supports a small level of customization. This presentation will introduce the wider .NET community to an open source solution that is based in Microsoft’s Visual Studio environment while still retaining the requisite levels of industrial robustness required for manufacturing facilities to reliably operate 24/7. Designed to be infinitely flexible, while removing the requirement of hiring a traditional computer programmer, AdvancedHMI has brought the industrial controls industry an open source solution that spans the “drag and drop” paradigm up through the ability to general totally custom controls. The presentation will include a live demonstration of the AdvancedHMI solution including the actual communication with production level hardware.

    Our Speaker:

    Kevin Berisso is an Associate Professor in the Department of Engineering Technology at the University of Memphis. His areas of expertise include robotics, automation, systems integration and automatic identification. Kevin has worked as a manufacturing engineer doing controls work and as a custom software project engineer. He also has a consulting company that does .NET based bar code and RFID based software integration. Kevin’s current academic research involves a newer bar code technology called DotCode and he is currently working to develop a baseline body of knowledge on the performance characteristics of the symbology.


    As usual, pizza will be served about 6:00 PM and the meeting will start at 6:30 PM. If you plan to attend, please RSVP so we know how much pizza to get, and who to contact if there are any changes that need to be communicated.

    If needed, the door and elevator code will be 1242#.
