Automation in Photonics

Activity: Talk or presentationOral presentation


From gyroscopes, to radars and range finding equipment, a wide array of aerospace subsystems rely on photonic technologies. To date this is a sector that has proved resistant to automation due to the complexity, extreme precision, and skill required for accurate assembly and alignment. Dr Richard Carter, Academic Lead for High Value Photonic Manufacturing at the National Robotarium, will give an overview of some of the R&D projects at Heriot-Watt aimed to address these issues.
