The design of intelligent device LAN based on RS-485 and using the key concepts of IEEE 802.3 is discussed. The frame structures, media access control, frame reception and transmission, collision detection, backoff and frame retransmission are briefly described.



Vyukhin V. N. Dynamic errors compensation in interleaved digital measuring systems


An algorithm for synchronization errors correction in interleaved systems is described, simulation results are included.



Chernetsova E. A. A Simultaneous processing of monochrome images with different noise levels


A method for determining the pixels belonging to an object is proposed. The method consists of morphological image filtering including pixel categorization as “true” and “mixed” which enables the improvement of object identification on images with different noise levels. The method’s software implementation can be included in various monitoring data processing systems such as the systems of oil pollution identification based on sea surface images.

A ship’s hull stressed state monitoring system is considered. The system meets the present day regulations and guidelines on hull stressed state monitoring with magnetoelastic transducers. System’s functional diagrams are presented including the module of digital signal processing with automatic measuring process recording. Future development of multi-channel hull strain monitoring systems is outlined.



Zainutdinova L. Kh., Tureysky G. G. Nonlinearity error reduction in magnetoelastic transducers of mechanical forces


To reduce the nonlinearity error reduction in magnetoelastic transducers of mechanical forces, a magnetoelastic transducer design is proposed enabling nonlinearity error reduction due to removing the non-monotony of the initial segment of the transformation function. An experimental investigation  of the transformation functions of the developed structure and a magnetoanisotropic transducer is undertaken. The advantage of the proposed design is confirmed.
