The new SYMCAD III solution boasts several technical benefits. The solutions depth sensors use optical triangulation (near-infrared light - NIR) to take the measurements. The solution also employs cutting-edge technology to eliminate electronic and optical interference. This results in an accuracy rate well below 1%. The reconstruction of the human body is realistic with virtually no noise or inaccuracies.   Technical specifications: - The floor space measures 3.3m² - Ultra-rapid measurement acquisition time: 1 second for a 10-sensor set-up and 1.8 seconds for a 20-sensor set-up. - 3D acquisition can be taken over 360°, because of the position of the sensors - Several measurement positions are possible: the accuracy of a cylinder with a circumference measuring 1.60 m and with a height of 1.90 m is less than ± 0.15% or ± 1.5‰ (per thousand). - Measurement limits are: height 2.05 m, depth 0.8 m and width 1 m. Over 140 measurements are automatically taken and can be consulted in less than 30 seconds. The measurement position control can be performed on pictograms and/or on real body forms.   Over thirty made-to-measure clothing shops in Europe already use the Telmat body measurement system. SYMCAD III starts at €12,000. About Telmat Industrie, TELMAT Industrie is a company specializing in providing IT solutions for the Telecoms, 3D Vision and Internet Security domains.

Alstom has worked in partnership with LU to ensure a seamless transition and to maintain the daily service levels ‎of the Underground. As part of the programme, the teams at Alstom’s Morden and Golders Green Metro Traincare Centres have: replaced 11km of lino in the fleet, which is roughly the distance between Buckingham Palace and the O2 Arena, polished 15,688 windows to remove graffiti, which is more panels of glass than in the Shard; and changed 27,500 seat backs, which is equivalent to a third of Wembley Stadium. The 106th and final train that has been upgraded, both inside and outside, including fitting wheelchair spaces and upgrading passenger information systems, has now re-entered service.  The mid-life refurbishing programme included 3.7 million items replaced on the fleet, which represents about 35,000 components per train. “ The team working on the project has done a fantastic job and I am sure most passengers didn’t realise what was going on until they got into a refreshed train on their commute to work for the first time, ” said Piers Wood, Managing Director Urban & Services, Alstom Transport UK. Stevyn Walder, Performance Manager for Northern Line Trains, said: “ Thanks to this refurbishment, Northern line trains are looking better than ever before. Customers travelling on the Northern line can now expect a cleaner and more comfortable environment to brighten up their journeys. ” The Northern line carries up to a quarter of Tube passengers, around one million people per day Monday to Friday.
