The flexible family of customisable sensors

The flexible family of customisable sensors
The SureSense family of user-customisable photo-electric sensors have been developed by SICK as a concept that enables machine builders and plant engineers to specify from a wide-range of sensing options all within a standard technology, set-up, mounting and housing. The durable SureSense sensors can reliably detect nearly any object in any environment – ensuring machines and lines stay up and running at full capacity.

Engineering student helps Stephen Hawking find his voice

Engineering student helps Stephen Hawking find his voice
A student at the University of Huddersfield has had the responsibility of making sure that Stephen Hawking keeps his synthesised voice plus the ability to communicate his influential ideas. Paweł Woźniak, who is completing his Bachelor of Engineering degree at the University, earned a coveted work placement year with Intel, at its Swindon base. He had a wide range of tasks and responsibilities and they included an assignment to visit the physicist in Cambridge in order to troubleshoot the devices he uses to communicate.
