• Large Volume Metrology

    Large Volume Metrology (LVM) is commonly defined as that branch of dimensional metrology dealing with objects with linear dimensions ranging from tents to hundreds of meters. Last decades has shown a great deal of applications of LVM, involving different arenas of technology, ranging from civil and industrial architecture to aerospace engineering. Typical applications refer to the measurement of large machines and structures, for example in the aeronautic and shipbuilder industry, but also in the field of topographical and architectural surveying. A branch of application, which is often neglected by the scientific literature when referring to LVM, concerns the tracking of objects in movement in large spaces, such as warehouses or industrial plants, or even over the territory.

  • Interactive programming of collaborative robots in assembly applications

    cobot  (from collaborative robot) is a robot intended to physically interact with humans in a shared workspace. This is in contrast with other robots, designed to operate autonomously or with limited guidance, which is what most industrial robots were up until the decade of the 2010s. Collaborative industrial robots are highly complex machines which are able to work hand in hand with human beings. The robots support and relieve the human operator in a conjoint work flow

  • Technological Surface Characterisation

    Technological surface characterisation allows to qualifying components and manufacturing processes to achieve their optimisation and an increase of their quality. Surface characterisation is performed both from the geometrical (topographical) and mechanical stand point.
