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.
