The Sellafield nuclear facility in Cumbria presents the largest and most intricate decommissioning challenge of our time. Aerial view of the Sellafield nuclear site. By Simon Ledingham Home to the UK’s first-generation nuclear reactors, the site was the focus of plutonium production for nuclear weapons, the [...]
As part of the Stereo Theatre project, i3Dr is integrating our high-resolution stereo camera system and propriety stereo matching algorithm into the Unity game engine. This will allow us to render detailed 3D information of a patient in an operating theatre in real-time for use in virtual reality [...]
Stereo vision specialists, i3D robotics, has won funding to develop existing intelligent robotic systems to improve production process within the energy-intensive foundation industries. The funding is part of the Government’s Fast Start competition under The Transforming Foundation Industries (TFI) programme, overseen by Innovate UK, part of UK Research and Innovation, for the Intelligent [...]
i3D robotics has won funding to develop a virtual-reality training platform to enable medical students to upskill remotely and perform simulation surgeries. The funding is part of the Government’s Fast Start competition with the successful projects being overseen by Innovate UK, part of UK Research and Innovation. The Stereo Theatre project addresses the [...]
During the COVID-19 period of social distancing, i3Dr has been looking at different ways to leverage technologies so we may continue to operate, design and test the equipment involved in our various projects. For many projects, multiple colleagues are required to work on different sections of a piece of [...]
Out of adversity comes opportunity – Benjamin Franklin 4-weeks ago COVID challenged all of us and changed how all of us work. It is unlikely, in many cases, we shall see a return to the way we were working. That is not necessarily a bad thing and what COVID-19 [...]
Rapid expansion for i3d-r and IS-I as Dr Richard French and Sarah Marsh-Collings join the team Increased workflow and success in the Integrated Innovation in Nuclear Decommissioning competition prompts the addition of two members to join IS-Instruments Ltd (ISI) and I3D Robotics Ltd (I3DR). Dr Richard French, Senior Systems [...]
3rd March 2020 – New office in Sheffield i3dr has opened an office in Sheffield at Electric Works.

The office is headed up by Dr Richard French, Senior Systems Scientist and recent addition to the [...]
24th March 2020 Intelligent Robotic Inspection for Foundation Industry Optimisation (IRIFIO) i3d-robotics leads team including GLASS TECHNOLOGY SERVICES LTD and LUCIDEON LIMITED that win ISCF funded project. More to follow…
As a result of COID-19, on the 18th March, we formally put everyone on remote working in response to the Government’s request to self-isolate and employ social distancing in an effort to 'flatten the curve' as the virus takes hold. The whole team has engaged with the change; they [...]
i3d robotics is pleased to report a successful investigation with Game Changers and Sellafield's innovation team https://mailchi.mp/cd27c71e7c54/cmi-event-glasgow-update-526987?e=7aaa0da49e We now are working on several aspects of the Alpha Glovebox challenge with different partners using our camera systems and mapping & object recognition software.
i3Dr is focused on developing technologies to enable a smart and zero-carbon world. With our 3D stereo vision technology providing real-time control, using AI software for defect detection and object recognition, we are designing a new generation of flexible 3D vision systems for autonomous and robotic applications.
