Abstract: This paper based on controlling the process variable parameters such as level and limit with real time implementation of gate controlling of DC motor using Programmable Logic Controller. In our proposed system, a programmable logic controller is used as an industrial computer playing the major role of a control devices and micro switch provide incoming signals to the control unit. The system model is provided with two levels in the one level in upper and one level in the lower outputs the ladder logic is actuated. This work uses PLC of ALLEN BRADLEY MICROLOGIX 1400 inbuilt with 20 digital inputs and provides 12 potential free outputs to control the miniaturized process depicted in the work.

Fig.8c: Input and Output Image In the output image of fig (8c), the main retinal blood vessels are highlighted with thorough smoothening and ramp-edge. CONCLUSION: Thus, from the results, we can conclude that after applying bilateral filtering on different images, the output images are smoothened by noise removal and preserving the edges. Also, for the images of different resolutions and for distinct filter parameters such as window size, sigma_d, sigma_r, etc, the simulation time changes accordingly. For higher resolution images, the computational speed of CPU is less and therefore the simulation time required is more. From the literature survey, we had said that computational time reduces and thus after interfacing GPU with CPU using II, Italy. ―3-D Non-Local Means denoising via multi-GPU.‖ Published by IEEE (2013).
