New sensor designed to scan glass and specular surfaces

The ECCO 95.015G is SmartRay’s first sensor designed specifically for flat and specular reflective surfaces. Previously, the 3D scanning of these surfaces had not been possible, because the laser would pass through the glass.   SmartRay has combined its existing ECCO 95 sensor technology with optimised optics to enable the surface to be scanned, while

How will transport work in smart cities?

As smart cities continue to gain momentum, Horiba MIRA has stated it is critical that automotive and infrastructure providers work more collaboratively to bring connected and automated mobility (CAM) into the mainstream. It comes as latest figures predict that spending on smart cities will reach a record £151.5bn by 2023, with the acceleration of connected

Is this the best drone yet for rig & turbine inspection?

The Aerial Robotics Lab at Imperial has helped develop a new drone that could be used to independently inspect and repair damaged wind farms and oil rigs. The Lab is one of several partners in the international Offshore Robotics for Certification of Assets hub (ORCA), which has developed a four-legged robot — named ANYmal —

Softing/Endress+Hauser combination to set up field devices

The combination of Softing's mobiLink interface with the Field Xpert SMT70 or SMT77 Tablet PC from Endress+Hauser offers users a simple and safe system solution for configuring and parameterising field devices for the most important process automation protocols — HART, PROFIBUS PA and Foundation Fieldbus. The bundle includes a Field Xpert SMT70 or SMT77 tablet

Is this the future of 3D printer scanning?

Scanlab is about to launch a scan system control extension using a smart data-acquisition interface that reads diverse sensors. Additive manufacturing users could gain significant advantages from the ability to uniformly query and evaluate centralised process data.  Industrial manufacturing’s requirements are rising relentlessly. An increasingly vital criterion for quality control and product traceability is the

Wanted: Boat builders and textiles experts

British luxury supercar maker McLaren is on the hunt for some unexpected recruits for its new £50m innovation and manufacturing facility in Yorkshire in the North of England. Applicants with experience in a wide variety of sectors from boat-building to the textiles trade and sporting goods industries are being encouraged to apply for the next

Hyperspectral imaging technology for UAV pilots

Headwall from Belgium and geo-konzept of Germany are creating a Centre for Hyperspectral Remote Sensing in Europe (CHRSE). It will be located at geo-konzept’s headquarters in Adelschlag, Germany. The new centre will support the implementation and utilisation of hyperspectral imaging technology combined with other sensor technology such as LiDAR and high-precision GPS focusing on agriculture,

Could magnesium replace carbon fibre for racing wheels?

Litespeed Racing’s Patrick Warren thinks so. “This is looking to be very big” he commented. “There hasn’t been a ton of recent innovation in this area, so our alloy really has the potential to shake things up. We can’t wait for our customers to get a chance to strap on our new wheels. I’ve got

Test phase begins for huge nacelle

A nacelle from GE Renewable Energy’s Haliade-X 12 MW offshore wind turbine has arrived at the Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult’s testing facility in Blyth, Northumberland, ahead of a rigorous testing programme designed to prepare it for years of operation at sea.  This nacelle, comparable in size to six double-decker London buses, will undergo full

Cruising out of Dover with 335 tonnes

Appointed by Daher Projects to undertake delivery of two 335 tonne transformers destined for Sellindge Substation, Collett & Sons loaded up its specialist girder bridge and headed out of Cruise Terminal 1 at the Port of Dover. Arriving at the port aboard the same vessel, Collett deftly discharged the first, lifting from the hold of the
