Electric vehicles are now a common sight on our roads and increasingly in other forms of transportation as we move towards a future which is less reliant on hydrocarbons. What are the challenges in making this happen and how are they being met? Hear from speakers from NPL and industry about the current and future states of electrification of transport.

Many organisations have either started or are poised ready to undertake a change in the way they operate. This change takes the form of how they use data within their business to create additional value for their customers. This event will provide several opportunities to hear from experts that can help you get started on this journey and also pick the right approach for your business and your customers. We will consider how to put some boundaries around your initial ambition and enthusiasm, how you might look to upskill your team. How to manage data, how we create a data management plan and what expressions like “data curation” actually mean. The team will discuss the importance of calibration and metrology and how to build on your existing expertise. Modelling data, how and why we use modelling and the value it can add to our understanding of how our products and services work in the real world and for those that want to see the future up close and personal we’ll hear from experts in data visualisation and how we can all improve how we interact with data to add greater insight into our businesses.

The Advanced Machinery & Productivity Institute recently began it’s first funded programme of research including both academic and industrially led projects. This event will give an overview of the programme and include examples of the current progress of some of these projects. Find out what work is being done, how you could be involved in the future and how to help influence future programmes of work within AMPI.

Robotic Inspection –

Tue, 8 Nov 2022 17:00

Following on from our recent event showing how robotics can be implemented in small businesses, we move on to discuss how robots can be used to aid inspection processes. Speakers from NPL, academia and industry will present examples of how robots are being used to test, measure, and inspect in a wide variety of applications, and give a glimpse into what can be expected in the future for robotic inspection.

Measurement Strategy –

Harsh Environment –

Tue, 24 Jan 2023 15:30

Making measurements in environments where most sensors would not survive or would only offer limited measurement data is extremely difficult. Hear from experts in this field who will discuss approaches to this challenge and introduce techniques and technologies that are available or becoming available to make measurements in hostile environments.

Battery Technology –

The increasing use of electrification in transport and the need to store energy from renewable energy sources such as solar cells leads to challenges to provide suitable battery storage. These batteries need to operate for a long time, reliably and within stated performance criteria. New battery manufacturers are emerging as is a need for better regulation of standards, more efficient means of testing cells and considerations for material reuse at the end of a battery’s life. Hear from people involved in these topics about what is currently being done and what the challenges are for the future.
