Neutralizing Nature: Controlling the Environment in Aerospace

If your goal is to send a billion-dollar satellite into space or to maintain precision defense systems aboard aircraft tasked with defending the nation, environmental variations aren't so much the spice of life as an endless minefield of potential hazards that could destroy your mission. In the unforgiving aerospace sector, the idea is not to celebrate nature but to neutralize it, creating artificial environments that remain precisely clean and stable, wherever the equipment or payload you're assembling, transporting and sending aloft happens to be.

Combating Driver Fatigue with Mobile Surveillance

Driver fatigue is a leading cause of traffic accidents for heavy-duty vehicles such as mining trucks, excavators, bulldozers, cranes, cargo trucks, and buses. Their drivers need a rapid alert system to keep them awake and on the road. Find out about an in-vehicle surveillance platform that uses a camera to monitor drivers for fatigue, analyzing video in real-time to activate alerts and wireless communications.
