Powerful Robots Helps in Faster Detection of Bridge Defects

A new powerful robot developed by researchers at University of Waterloo helps in faster detection of defects and makes the process reliable by automating it.The new system combines autonomous robots, cameras and lidar – a remote sensing method using lasers — to systematically collect data for defect detection and analysis. “We can do more than humans now do - and do it much better in every way,” said Sriram Narasimhan, an engineering professor at Waterloo. “It is very inexpensive because you don’t need as many inspectors relying on specialized equipment such as lifts and you get much higher quality information.” The vast majority of routine tasks during bridge inspections, which are required every few years by regulatory authoritie

Exomoons May Become Quasi-planets

New research by astronojers Mario Sucerquia of Universidad de Antioquia, Colombia, and Jaime Alvarado-Montes from Australia's Macquarie University has shown that moons ejected from orbits around gas giant exoplanets could explain several astronomical mysteries. They modelled the likely behaviour of giant exomoons predicted to form
