Cambridge needs to grow and there are currently plans for over 33,000 houses to be built over the next fifteen years which will see an additional 50,000 people move into Cambridge and the surrounding area. This growth presents an unprecedented challenge for Cambridge and there is an immediate need to address the pressures this will put on mobility, the Environment, Health and Social Care and the potential impacts on quality of life for residents. Digital technology now underpins almost all aspects of modern living in every sphere across work, travel, leisure and health; and increasingly it impacts on the economic strength, sustainability and quality of life of all parts of the UK and beyond. Emerging “smart cities” technology which is set to have an even greater economic impact in future, builds on this to utilise digital connectivity, sensors and data in innovative ways. This innovation will support: efficient resource management; environmental management, traffic congestion and other city management challenges and help to engage more directly with citizens. On the 4th of Aug 2015 the Smart Cambridge programme became a workstream within the Greater Cambridge City Deal http://www.gccitydeal.co.uk/. One of the first investments the City Deal has agreed to make to support the Smart Cambridge programme is the development of a ‘City Management Platform’ that will deliver two use cases; • a journey planning tool which will have the ability to go over and above the current market leaders (Google, Apple etc.) • a baselining of the current data available within the city and the creation of visualisation and analytics tools to enable policy makers to be able to better use this data.

42414200

The ongoing expansion of the TWI Facility in Port Talbot will include the addition of a second high bay laboratory. This high bay laboratory will need to be capable of handling large, heavy customer samples from a variety of industries. Due to the varying size and weight of project samples that we currently have onsite and the potential for larger samples in the future, we propose to install two ten tonne overhead cranes which are capable of operating independently or in tandem. The ability to operate in tandem will allow us to handle large heavy components which have large distances between lifting points. This will remove the need for a taller building to allow the use of lifting beams and spreader bars. The preferred supplier must liaise with the build contractors throughout the build to ensure that all requirements are captured and schedules and deadlines and met. Please ensure that all queries are submitted through the In-Tend correspondence facility. TWI is one of the world’s foremost independent research and technology organisations, with expertise in solving problems in all aspects of manufacturing, fabrication and whole-life integrity management technologies. Established in Cambridge, UK in 1946 and with facilities across the globe, the company has a first class reputation for service through its teams of internationally respected consultants, scientists, engineers and support staff, whose knowledge and expertise is available to its Industrial Members as and when they require. This specification has been produced as part of an initiative known as AEMRI (Advanced Engineering Materials Research Institute), which is funded by the Welsh European Funding Office (WEFO) using European Regional Development Funds (ERDF). AEMRI seeks to create a unique facility housing a critical mass of equipment, expertise and resources. AEMRI provides an environment to test and prove the limits of performance of advanced materials. Through the use of advanced modelling and simulation methods, full, large-scale mechanical test structures will be designed and built upon finite element analysis (FEA) calculations. Advanced, automated non-destructive evaluation (NDE) techniques will be developed with the aim of saving the industry time and production costs as well as minimising the risk of catastrophic structural failures. AEMRI will deliver the objectives of the project through the following four technical strands:- - Modelling and Simulation of High Performance Materials and Structures. - Advanced Robotic Inspection of Complex Geometry Structures. - Inspection Systems for Very Large Structures for the Green Energy Sector. - Nuclear Fabrication Research Centre.

TWI Technology Centre (Wales) has been using a robotic cell for automated Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) since 2012 and is continually working towards improving the existing setup. An automated part recognition system is required as part of the ongoing development. This development is aimed at reducing the overall time needed for inspections as well as assuring the optimal robotic path is utilised by measuring the component geometry accurately. A 2D/3D displacement sensor would significantly decrease the setup time needed for inspections by measuring features on the surface of a component which will be used to define the base coordinates in the robot reference frame. In addition, a 2D/3D displacement sensor will enable more accurate path planning by verifying the geometry of the component prior to inspection, and using the displacement data to correct for differences between the CAD data provided for the component, and the actual component geometry. The supplier will provide a single light based (either laser profile or structured light) scanning system capable of measuring standoff distance to a component.
