Congratulations to Saildrone which have just raised $60 million in series B funding to continue development and deployment of their autonomous sailing robot. Saildrone launched commercially in 2016 and its current mission is to build and deploy a fleet of 1,000 fully autonomous ocean-capable vessels. They hope to have 200 drones completed by the end of this year. So what exactly are Saildrones?

Why a Digital Twin Is the Best Way to Start a Building Project

Article | April 28, 2020

A digital twin is much more than just a 3D model of a building. It contains detailed information of all equipment and components, including their physical properties and cost. The model can also reflect the exact state of building elements, showing issues like mechanical wear. Digital twins can also be used as simulation tools, to analyze how a building would behave under different conditions.

3 IMPORTANT STEPS TO REVERSE ENGINEERING A PART

Article | April 8, 2021

Over the past 120 years, there has been a production of millions of machine parts and products worldwide. However, few of these products are still relevant over the years because of the technological advancement, but lots of old parts used in machines are still in use. When a part breaks down or malfunctions, it is usually replaced using a process known as reverse engineering. There are many things that can be learned from a machine or software, just from reverse engineering. This is because the concept behind the reverse engineering process is to break something down to help understand it, and the engineer can then build a copy or try to improve it. Furthermore, there is a need for a reverse engineering design process as the technology advances to ensure the existing manufacturing systems’ continuity. Reverse engineering is an important process for everybody as we will be forced to replace entire machines without it. In this article, we will break down everything you need to know about reverse engineering, from reverse engineering to reverse engineering processes.
