We always try and give you an eclectic mix of content – but I think we have taken that to a new level this issue.
Looking back two millennia, we have a story on how the historic sites at Pompeii were scanned and integrated with live action for the BBC and, at the cutting edge of modern computing technology, we look at how Siemens is applying simulated testing to give optimum performance to Nissan.
In another alternative take on the automotive industry we look at how VW tests its in-car infotainment systems using optical character recognition technology.
But don’t worry, we still have our usual mix of know-how, technical insights and application case studies looking at tried and trusted tools such as CMMs, roundness testers, inclinometers, micrometers weighing machines.
To give this all a bit of perspective, we also have the insights of Chris Eden on how requirements and attitudes to quality auditing have evolved over the course of his career.
Quite a mix – I hope you enjoy it.
