How artificial intelligence is changing industry – and everyday life.

Artificial intelligence is taking over everyday life. Voice assistants aim to make our lives easier, cars are learning how to drive themselves, and in the not-too-distant future, the first drones could be taking passengers to their destinations – with no pilots whatsoever. What is less well known is how artificial intelligence is becoming more prevalent in industry and manufacturing.

The animal kingdom as a template for aerodynamics in industry

The animal kingdom as a template for aerodynamics in industry

When technology learns from nature, it is referred to as bionics. The methods by which lotus flowers repel water, geckos’ feet offer extraordinary adhesion, or dragonflies manage to fly through the air are some of the best examples of innovations that humanity has copied from the animal kingdom. In the field of aerodynamics, engineers are now working to use nature in their quest to optimise the behaviour of aircraft, vehicles and other objects as air flows over them.

Antennae: Research into greater safety and security in aviation

Antennae used in aircraft must operate reliably under extreme conditions. To achieve this, researchers carry out measurements in anechoic chambers – and, from time to time, even draw inspiration from the natural world.

Cold weather, ice and snow in industry - The unique challenges posed by winter

Cold weather, ice and snow in industry - The unique challenges posed by winter

Trains are cancelled or delayed, aircraft need to be de-iced, cars won’t start and machinery everywhere is pushed to the its operational limits: the challenges of the cold weather are particularly noticeable in the transportation sector but also demand creative solutions from all kinds of industries. At the same time, low temperatures, ice and snow represent a great deal of potential opportunity for countless different industries, from automotive technology to the chemical industry.

expertise4innovations 2018 – An auspicious year for innovation

Under the motto of “expertise4innovations,” ARTS, in collaboration with Airbus and the industrial photographer, Wolfram Schroll, will be launching a new, innovation-focused campaign in the New Year. At the centre of the campaign is the ARTS photographic calendar, which will depict a different outstanding innovation in the space and aviation sectors every month in the form of a fascinating photo captured in Schroll’s lens. We spoke with Mr. Schroll about his art and his motivations.
