ES programme: Framework Programe 7 (FP7)
The objective of the project
To create the first automatic spot weld tracking device that can be applied non-destructively in the automotive repair industry. The new SpotTrack device will allow the user quickly and reliably to tell whether a spot weld is acceptable by giving a simple pass or fail indication. The proposed SpotTrack system will have the advantage of testing the actual weld made within a matter of seconds and without the need for interpretation.
Main role will be to develop signal processing algorithms, also assist in modelling of ultrasonics and prototype evaluation.
