A*STAR invents new technology to help aerospace industry

14 Feb 2016

In the future, one may be able to pinpoint areas in an airplane engine requiring repair accurately, simply by taking a photograph of the engine instead of going through manual checking, thereby enhancing aerospace safety. Since 2007, A*STAR has rolled out an aerospace programme to help those in the aerospace industry to resolve technical challenges I²R has invented a technology where the staff can simply snap a picture of a part of the airplane, upload it onto a computer which will pinpoint which parts need to be repaired or replaced. This technology has a 90% accuracy, comparable to that of a human.
