Going from hot and cold testing of engines to a robust end-of-line testing system for electrified vehicles

Article | February 21, 2020

The current trend of electrification in the automotive industry challenges not only the development teams, but also the production lines and quality testing. While the ICE (internal combustion engine) production rely on the well-established hot and cold testing of engines applying vibration and sound measurements; assembly of electrified vehicles requires new advanced end-of-line (EoL) testing methods and standards.

Trimble’s SiteVision Turns Your Phone Into an Augmented Reality BIM Coordination Machine

Article | April 23, 2020

There are a handful of pretty cool accessories for your smartphone that can be very useful to those of us in the construction industry, like thermal imaging cameras, in-wall imagers, and inspection cameras. None of those, however, help with BIM coordination, unlike a system that I just found from construction software giant, Trimble. Many different systems have been created in recent years to harness the power of augmented reality on the jobsite, with BIM the core focus of many of those solutions, but this system from Trimble is a bit different than all of them. Using an AR enabled smartphone, Trimble SiteVision combines hardware and software to virtually project BIM models onto the jobsite you’re standing in.

I promised last time I wrote that I would focus this installment on that very issue. However, I think it is important to highlight why ICE’s position and more broadly the position of civil engineers around the world is so important.

Using Technology to Break Down Silos in Construction

Article | February 25, 2020

For those of us who have worked in the construction industry for many years, it is time we face up to an ugly reality... Our industry has always had a love affair with silos. Silos are endemic in the construction industry. The silos I’m referencing don’t hold grain. Instead, they represent the multiple subgroups assembled to complete a project. Most of us know this is not a good thing and deep down, we wish it wasn’t true. But, the ugly reality of our business is this - construction breeds and nurtures silos.
