BIONIC Aircraft project has recently finished. This is the acronym of Increasing resource efficiency of aviation through implementation of ALM technology and bionic design in all stages of an aircraft life cycle, and its budget was €7.9million, being funded by the European Commission thanks to Horizon2020 program. The general goal of the project was increasing the efficiency of the resources when manufacturing airplanes, fostering the intensive use of Additive Layer Manufacturing (ALM) techniques.  This technology will allow reducing emissions during the flights due to the weight saving when using complex geometry, light and high resistance parts. This kind of parts, also called Bionic parts, avoid wasting raw material because no classical machining techniques are needed for their development. In this Project, Tecnalia´s Computer Vision Team tackled a task with the aim of asset the quality control of those new bionic parts during their use, this is [...]
