Delivering sensing and imaging technologies designed to meet industrial challenges
NPL develops and deploys state-of-the-art sensing and imaging solutions to meet a range of industrial needs. The combination of our world-leading skills, expertise and facilities enables us to be a one-stop-shop for sensing and imaging customers. We can test, verify, modify and commercialise sensing systems, taking projects from laboratory prototype to deployment in the factory or out in the field, saving you time and money.
The work we do can help to deliver commercial applications. For example, we are developing imaging technologies used in crop breeding programmes and by automated harvesting vehicles, which will help to increase crop yields and address food shortages.
The sensing and imaging services we provide address your measurement challenges using the non-ionising part of the electromagnetic spectrum, including optical radiation (ultraviolet, visible and infrared) and electromagnetic fields (power frequencies, microwaves and radio frequencies). They can particularly benefit businesses in the agritech, food and drink, communications, defence and connected autonomous vehicles sectors.
Together, our experts and facilities can help companies undertake quick and accurate non-destructive and materials sensing, testing or imaging.
