Lecturer wins Best Paper Award

A paper, authored by Heriot-Watt University Lecturer Dr Frédéric Bosché and the visiting student researcher Emeline Guenet, received one of the only three Best Paper awards at the International Symposium on Automation and Robotics in Construction (ISARC) recently held in Sydney, Australia.

The paper, titled "Controlling Slab Flatness Automatically using Laser Scanning and BIM" was in competition against 135 other papers presented at this international conference.

Dr Bosché, a Lecturer within the School of the Built Environment at Heriot-Watt University, said: "We are very pleased and honoured by this recognition of the academic and industrial value of the research conducted in our lab. I am particularly pleased for Emeline who worked hard and well on this project."
