The Future of Construction from a Leader in SLAM-Based Laser Scanning

Article | February 10, 2020

Since the early days of the personal computer the construction industry has been slow to adopt digital technology. As a result, increases in construction productivity have lagged virtually every other major industry, such as automotive and aircraft manufacturing. It’s true that every construction project is different, unlike automobiles and planes, but we can do more to improve the future of construction.

Testing Cloud application stability using the principles of Chaos Engineering

Article | February 24, 2020

Across the business landscape, we’re seeing a wholesale movement of services to the Cloud as companies wake up to the benefits of capacity and flexibility that accompany such a shift away from hosting systems on servers. While there are clear advantages to migrating to the cloud, there are challenges too – such as layers of added complexity. Testing these cloud-based systems to make sure they stand up under duress is important, but the heightened complexity of these environments means that the role of Quality Assurance has had to evolve accordingly.

15 sites in the frame to become home to the UK’s prototype fusion energy plant

Article | May 15, 2021

The UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) has revealed the long list of sites under consideration for development of the UK’s prototype fusion energy plant.An open call for sites to host the Spherical Tokomak for Energy Production (Step) facility was opened last year and compliance check of those nominated has led to publication of the long list. According to the UKAEA, moving fusion from research and development to design and delivery is an important part of the UK’s ambition to be a world leader in sustainable, low-carbon energy. Fusion has the potential to provide an abundant source of low-carbon energy by copying the processes that power the sun and stars. UKAEA has said that this new technology will play an important role alongside established renewable technologies such as wind and solar.Step programme director Paul Methven said: “STEP is about building on the amazing science done over decades in fusion and translating that into a real prototype power plant that paves the way for this fantastic new energy source.
