Envision 4.0, the newest feature release of SolidThinking’s data analytics platform, has been described by the company as ‘feature-rich across the board’, making it ‘more capable, refined and easy to use’.

With several new functions added for internet of things (IoT) and industrial analytics, aspects such as real time data refresh gives the option to visualise dashboards for synced up IoT products.

The goal is to offer users fast free-form data exploration, visualisation and analytics, in a scalable model on an open architecture.

Things Connected is looking to develop IoT devices to solve city challenges ranging from flooding, to air pollution, to helping the NHS make better use of its buildings

Six SME’s from across the UK have been awarded a share of £50,000 funding to help tackle problems such as noise pollution, making cycling safer and helping the NHS utilise under-used space, via IoT devices.

Things Connected is ran by the Future Cities Catapult, a UK Government-supported centre of excellence in urban innovation, which will fund the SMEs to develop and demonstrate connected devices in London using its Things Connected Low-Power LoRaWAN (Long Range Wide Area Network).

With the UK’s IoT marketplace current worth £13.3bn, and expected to rise to £20bn by 2018, the Things Connected network provides huge opportunities for entrepreneurs and developers to test and trial new ideas that can be rolled out on commercial networks.

Humanoid robots can also impact the design of prosthetics and exoskeletons for humans

A project between robotics experts Devanthro and the Technical University of Munich is aiming to advance the design of humanoid robots in order for them to gain the abilities of human bodies.

The vision is to iteratively improve Roboy robotic models until their performance is comparable to humans in terms of dexterity, robustness and flexibility, utilising muscles and tendons rather than motors in the joints.

The first prototypes have lent heavily on the abilities of 3D printing, with EOS providing the complete skeletal body structure of Roboy using its SLS technology, which encases the bones and muscles.

The BSI aims to stick a small rocket up the UK industry to move it over more fully to the ISO system of geometrical product specification

BSI, the British standards company, has revised BS 8888:2017 – Technical product documentation and specification.

I know… it’s been a long day, but stick with this…

The latest version explains the way in which engineering drawings outline and present these specifications, and covers all of the symbology and information that engineers and designers need to include on their drawings, whether they are produced in 2D or in 3D, created using CAD systems and 3D modelling.
