Q3 2020 at RCC Nova company
For our employees this period is the work related to the development and implementation of the universal aircraft engine lifting system. The contractor for which the project is carried out is a French company providing innovative solutions to airport ground support and maintenance equipment. Focusing on continuous growth, the company is looking for solutions to speed up and facilitate manual work, hence the decision to optimize the next range in the above industry.
The device, which will expand the offer of the French company is electrically driven, remote-controlled, 6-axis manipulator to facilitate work during maintenance operations related to the installation and removal of engines in aircraft.
Our company is responsible for all works related to the development and implementation of the manipulator control system including:
In the future we will gladly share the recordings of the first tests
Safety opening and closing of passenger carriages doors
In July 2020, we finished working on an innovative railroad door control system – innovative because it uses machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI).
Our controller is specially designed to withstand voltage surges and bursts that often occur at the place of its application – railroad carriages.
Additionally implemented machine learning software “learns” the power needed to open and close the door at every point of movement, remembering these values.
When at a given point the force requirement exceeds the standard value, for AI algorithms, this means encountering an obstacle and the software immediately stops closing the door. Continuous analysis of the use of force by the algorithms allows to detect obstacles with high precision. This results in a much lower force requirement for the controller to identify the obstacle, which directly affects the safety of the traveler, e.g. by eliminating the risk of being trapped in the door.
Thanks to the use of innovative methods we design and manufacture safe, stable and fault-tolerant control systems, which are successfully used in several hundred railroad carriages in Poland and abroad.
Testing Simcenter Testlab 2019 software
Over the past few months, RCC Nova, in cooperation with Siemens Industry Software NV, has participated in a project consisting in testing the functionality of the pre-release version of Simcenter Testlab 2019. The duties of a qualified team of engineers were to check the correct operation of individual application modules, apply the application in practice and maintain documentation on the bugs needed to eliminate the new version before the official launch.
The work was carried out both at the RCC Nova office in Krakow and at the client’s headquarters in Leuven (Belgium).
