Using modern robotics in the UK's nuclear clean-up operation

Using modern robotics in the UK's nuclear clean-up operation
Since the UK’s first power station was connected to the grid in 1957, the UK have been pioneers in nuclear technology. However, in those post-World War II days, the nuclear industry wasn’t designed with decommissioning in mind.

Microcontroller options for servo control in industrial robots

Microcontroller options for servo control in industrial robots
Renesas Electronics has introduced the RX72T Group of 32-bit motor control microcontrollers (MCUs) with dedicated hardware accelerator IP to perform the complex, high speed computations required for motor control in robots and other industrial equipment. The RX72T Group delivers performance, achieving an 1160 CoreMark score as measured by EEMBC Benchmarks (Note 1) - the highest level for a 5V MCU operating at 200MHz.

Cloud solution developed for autonomous drones

Cloud solution developed for autonomous drones
The potential for autonomous drones is huge. By providing an overview of a forest fire, inspecting power lines, or supplying medicines to disaster-struck areas, a great deal of time and money can be saved at the same time as safety is increased. Semcon has taken part in developing the cloud solution for FlyPulse's autonomous drone system, which is used in many different projects.
