Robot Provides 3-D Images of Dangerous Locations
02/22/10 — Researchers at Missouri University of Science and Technology and the University of Missouri-Columbia partner to develop a remote-controlled robot that is equipped with an infrared camera and LIDAR technology capable of providing detailed images of room interiors even when peering through a window. Soldiers and first responders may soon have a better way to evaluate the interior of dangerous structures, thanks to a joint project between Missouri University of Science and Technology and the University of Missouri-Columbia. As part of the project, which began in 2008, students at Missouri S&T have built a remote-controlled robot that is equipped with an…

Laser-Ranging System Provides Precision to the Nanometer
05/26/09 — The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has announced the development of an ultra-precise laser-ranging system that combines two different approaches to range-finding and an “optical frequency comb”—a set of spectrometry tools that can precisely identify the color of light from specific sources. The system combines time-of-flight method of…
