Update – presentations from the above event are available.
Road lighting and traffic signals are essential to the safety of our streets, but also come with environmental impacts. To learn about the latest EU GPP Criteria, plus hear first-hand from good practice procurers, join the next EU GPP Helpdesk Webinar on Thursday 10th October (14.00 to 15.30 Brussels time). Registration is now open.
When it comes to planes cruising through the air, many of us are used to the idea of them flying on autopilot with little or no input from a human pilot as they travel from one destination to another. Landing a plane under autopilot, known as autoland, is a different matter. While some systems already exist, efforts are underway to improve them to enable safer landings.
A major milestone in the regulation of operations of Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) in Europe was achieved on 10th October 2019 with the publication of the Acceptable Means of Compliance (AMC) and Guidance materials (GM) for the Regulation on UAS operations in the open and specific category.
Dimmable windows are a popular cabin design feature for passengers flying high above the clouds when the cabin becomes too bright, but for obvious safety reasons this is not an option in the cockpit. Consequently, the avionics instrument displays on which pilots rely for monitoring every aspect of the aircraft’s situation, performance, navigation and other key flight parameters have to be exceptionally bright. However, this means that they also consume a lot of electricity and generate unwanted heat. Clean Sky’s HiLiCo project is en route to deliver the technologies for a next generation ‘see-through’ pilot’s headset-based instrumentation display system using low-energy-consuming Gan LED technology.
