Collaboration aids sensor research at Plessey

Plessey's Roke Manor research centre was one of the first organisations to become involved in fibre optic sensing. Jack Hollingum visited the laboratory and learned about…

Kodak focuses development on motion analysis

Jack Hollingum

Kodak has introduced a lower‐cost version of its high‐speed motion analysis system.

Co‐ordinating vision and tactile sensing with robotics

Joyce‐Loebl's Alan Robinson, technical director, and Peter Hage, industrial systems manager, talk to Jack Hollingum about a low cost ‘vision engine’ for handling and…

At the frontiers of vision processing

Undeterred by the complexities involved researchers are pushing forward to the ultimate goal: a computer that can fully make sense of what it sees. Stephen McClelland reports.

Portable NDT system proves technology transfer

A joint development of an ultrasonic defect sizing technique has not only resulted in a versatile NDT system, but has proved that technology transfer works. Sarah Gardner reports.

Keeping tinplate on the right track

R.G. Gratton

Classification equipment has been installed at a Yugoslav tinplate complex to identify, monitor and track the tinplate sheets.

Surface contact sensor for robot safety

A. Pruski

A conductive fibre felt has been developed with high sensitivity over a large surface. It can be tailored to cover a robot arm, its working area or other moving devices.

Whirlwind tour through robotic vision

Blending sensor theory and practice, and with a commercial market reckoned to be huge, robotic vision is currently a ‘hot topic’. Here, Professor Mike Brady, explains the…
