Scientists developing robots to clean train carriages

Robots that can clean train carriages and drones that can inspect railway bridge arches are being developed by scientists in two new research projects. The Heriot-Watt University researchers are working on robotised mobile inspection platforms that can operate in hard-to-reach areas such as between and under the seats of a train carriage. The robot platforms will detect…

AI could cut chest X-ray process time, claims University of Warwick

Researchers have created an artificial intelligence (AI) system they claim can spot abnormalities in chest X-rays and speed up the processing of screenings. The software uses computer vision to recognise radiological abnormalities in X-rays and then suggest how quickly these should be reported by a radiologist. The research from the University of Warwick claims the…
