CSIRO’s RoadCrack imaging technology automates the task of surveying the nation’s roads with a capacity to detect cracks one millimetre wide from beneath the chassis of a moving vehicle. Developed by CSIRO for the NSW Roads and Traffic Authority (RTA), RoadCrack is a mobile camera and image-processing tool that detects, classifies and reports on cracking […]
CSIRO’s air cargo scanner allows rapid identification of contraband in air freight containers. Existing bulk scanning technologies use high-energy X-rays to detect distinctive metal objects such as weapons, but ill-defined, organic materials such as drugs and explosives, are harder for them to detect. CSIRO’s world-first technology combines neutrons and gamma-rays to detect and predict the […]
Brian Sowerby, James Tickner (CSIRO Minerals). For developing a world-first air cargo scanner for interrogating consolidated air cargo for contraband such as drugs and explosives.
George Harley (Corporate Property). Over the past 19 years he has led the multi-disciplinary Corporate Property team to rationalise, consolidate and redevelop CSIRO’s research property portfolio around Australia.
The maze of tiny cracks that develops in plane windows is irritating for passengers and expensive to fix. Now there’s a solution.
David Lamb, Howard Lovatt and colleagues (ICT Centre, CSIRO Telecommunications and Industrial Physics; Marine and Atmospheric Research; Energy Technology; Mathematical and Information Sciences; Molecular Science). For the development of complete power-trains for two low-emission car projects.
Ian McIntre, Mark Berman, Robert Oreb and colleagues (CSIRO Manufactoring Science and Technology, CSIRO Telecommunications and Industrial Physics, CSIRO Mathematical and Information Sciences). For the development of the RoadCrack system using innovative vision technology.
RoadCrack – an innovative vision technology that automates the task of surveying the nation’s roads with a capacity to detect cracks one millimetre wide from beneath the chassis of a moving vehicle.
