Multi-Part Scanning And Inspection With CyberGage360

Case Study: How upgrading an inspection process to inspect 500-1000 parts per day improved what was an existing manual process. The manual process was costly and time consuming. Manual inspection of individual parts proved ineffective as defects were not always detected by operators. CyberGage360 automates 3D scanning and inspection of a batch of small parts in one scan cycle, increasing throug... » read more

VW emissions tests cheat code found A team of researchers from UC San Diego, Ruhr University along with an independent researcher has uncovered the mechanism that Volkswagen used to circumvent U.S. and European emission tests over a period of at least six years before the EPA put the company on notice in 2015 for violating the Clean Air Act. The researchers found the code that allowed onboa... » read more

System Bits: Dec. 29

Optoelectronics built using existing manufacturing Using only processes found in existing microchip fabrication facilities, researchers at MIT, the University of California at Berkeley, and the University of Colorado have produced a working optoelectronic microprocessor that computes electronically but uses light to move information. The researchers reminded that optical communications prom... » read more
