Introduction to our thesis

Most of you probably ever had an X-ray scan, but did you know the same techniques are used for non destructive testing?

Using similar machines, it’s possible to reveal the insides of ¬†about any product, without destroying it in the process. This has some very useful application which we will talk about in one of our next blogposts.

Our thesisproject is to research different methods to add collision detection and avoidance in these scanners. This will ensure that the x-ray source won’t get knocked out of its calibrated position by accident caused by a collision between the object to be scanned and the source.

Our blog itself will investigate different methods of Non Destructive Testing (NDT) and its useful applications as well as the possibilities of vision systems.

We hope you enjoy reading our posts and will comment frequently.
