The world's first high-temperature aerial platform for Close and General Visual Inspection performs a job at 65°C on an offshore platform.
High pressure with adjustable angle can achieve so much more
Researchers at ETH Zurich and the Swiss Federal research institute WSL have developed a flying device that can land on tree branches to take samples. This opens up a new dimension for scientists previously reserved for biodiversity researchers.
On January 20, Team POLAR showcases its first vehicle for independent climate research in icy, inhospitable regions such as the North and South Poles.
How Creaform Met the Need for Enhanced Accuracy, Versatility, and Efficiency of voestalpine Stahl GmbH
High-precision measurements, shorter surveying times and the rapid further processing of the data obtained convinced voestalpine Stahl.
SFM improves its client reporting and the quality control of its transformer tanks through 3D scanning
Latvian company SFM, a provider of transformer tanks, has been using Creaform MetraSCAN BLACK 3D scanner with VXelements software for 2 years, to provide high-quality 3D measurement reports for its products.
Cambridge engineers have used drones, handheld particle sensors and a new modelling framework to measure, map and characterise harmful shipping emission particles at both land and sea. It is the first time that multi-characteristic particle measurements – including lung deposited surface area (LDSA), black carbon, and particle number – have been performed in this way, and it is hoped that this research will inform environmental initiatives and support efforts to clean up the maritime sector.
Hummingbirds have extreme aerial agility and flight forms, which is why many drones and other aerial vehicles are designed to mimic hummingbird movement. Using a novel modeling method, researchers gained new insights into how hummingbirds produce wing movement, which could lead to design improvements in flying robots.
The origin of Mars’ two moons, Phobos and Deimos, is still unclear. To unravel this mystery, the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) Martian Moons eXploration (MMX) mission is scheduled to launch in 2024.
End-to-end recycling solutions deliver the benefits of carbon fiber composites with a more circular approach.
3D laser scanners are a hot topic these days. 3D laser scanning is an advanced technology with a market growth forecasted by some reports to grow at a CAGR of 7.5% from 2021 to 2026. Other research indicates that the 3D laser scanner market will likely reach $16.66 billion by 2030.
The device could help scientists explore unknown regions of the ocean, track pollution, or monitor the effects of climate change.
In this episode, we talk about how a team from TUM has developed a system composed of collaborative drones that can create structure in remote and/or disastrous areas.
An international team of researchers have created a fleet of bee-inspired flying 3D printers for building and repairing structures in-flight.
