Want to talk to us about autonomous driving?
The automotive industry is changing faster than ever before. As the responsibility for control of vehicles passes from humans to machines, so greater responsibility for safety passes from drivers to manufacturers. Elegant technology solutions are required to deliver safe and reliable systems at automotive cost points.
There has been huge investment in the development of new hardware and software to replace all the functions of a human driver. While fully autonomous cars and trucks remain several years from realisation, the adoption of advanced driver assistance systems is ramping already.
Multiple sensor modalities are required for vehicles to perceive their environment and become autonomous. Most autonomous systems rely on redundant sensing from cameras, radar and lidar to enable vehicles to operate in all environmental conditions. To do so requires a system-level approach, not just focusing on individual sensors but also their integration and the ancillary technologies required to keep sensors 100% available.
While cameras, lidars and radars are not new modalities, the requirements for autonomous driving have prompted significant technology development. The biggest challenge in developing successful products is adapting technologies developed for high-value low-volume products to automotive cost and quality requirements. Often the sensors need to be stripped back to the fundamentals then tightly integrated to hit cost and quality targets.
Leveraging highly integrated multidisciplinary teams, TTP helps sensor developers and integrators to solve these complex challenges.
With UK armed forces and emergency services facing ever-evolving threats, the defence and security industry must innovate to provide enhanced capabilities to those facing hostile environments in Britain and beyond.
Industrial manufacturing demands the increasingly sophisticated integration of innovative technologies in both products and processes. From 3D printing of chemical and biological materials to harnessing micro-scale manufacturing techniques, we offer clients extensive experience across the manufacturing arena, revolutionising how products are conceived, optimised and produced.
From soaring energy demand in emerging markets to the rapid deployment of alternative energy resources, most industry sectors are investing in a low-carbon future. From fundamental science to industrial-scale implementation, we create and optimise systems and devices that harness, distribute and store energy.
Operating at the intersection of science, engineering and business, we identify market-led opportunities, create new technologies and deliver industrial products that provide strong commercial value. We take a partnership approach from concept creation through to transfer to manufacture, using our deep understanding of science and technology to invent and design products, and our state-of-the-art facilities to prototype and validate them.
The Internet of Things is invisibly changing the way we interact with products and services by restructuring legacy business models and replacing them with new ones.
From new process concepts to advanced analytical technology, we support clients in the development of sustainable processes.
Industrial sector companies are pressed to improve worker safety and reduce operational costs. Industrial safety equipment manufacturers must respond by creating products that are fit to withstand harsh conditions with minimal maintenance for decades. We work with clients to develop products and devices that meet the latest safety standards and protect people and assets.
