The Light Controlled Factory
A grant of £2.5million comes from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and the research team, Bath University leading the project and the 3DIMPact team at UCL, have secured match-funding in excess of £1.25 million from ten industrial partners including Airbus, Astrium Satellites, Rolls-Royce, Renishaw and the National Physical Laboratory. This project will investigate and develop novel and interlinked measurement-enabled technologies for realising the next generation of factories for the "Assembly, Integration and Test" (AIT) of high value products. The vision is for the widespread adoption and interlinked deployment of novel, measurement-based techniques in factories, to provide machines and parts with aspects of temporal, spatial and dimensional self-awareness, enabling superior machine control and parts verification. The title "Light Controlled Factory" reflects the enabling role of optical metrology in future factories.
