Facilitating the recycling process of catalytic converters using computer vision

Catalytic converters used in car exhausts are effective means of reducing pollutant emissions from internal combustion engines under normal operating conditions. They contain precious metals which makes them attractive for recycling due to their metal value and also the sustainability of the demand for these metals. The price of Catalytic converters can be determined based on their models and the amount of metal that exist in them.

Development of an innovative portable running analysis toolbox

Studying a person's running biomechanics has been limited to a laboratory setting due to the complex, expensive equipment needed to capture their motion and forces. Recent developments in wearable technologies may allow these measurements to be captured outside of the lab, which is not only a cost effective alternative, but may allow for the collection of data in a more "natural" environment. While these wearable sensors may represent the future for assessing a person's running pattern, they need to be compared with the current in-lab, gold-standard approaches to ensure they are valid.

Bid, Evaluate, Award (BEA) Cycle Analysis & Visualization

Measuring and assessing EPC project performance is an integral part of the management’s control function. EPC companies generate a lot of unstructured data. Visualization techniques have the potential to cope with such large datasets as are generated in EPC companies, by presenting subsets of these datasets in forms that provide useful insights for management teams. The project aims to use top-down approaches for the design and development of a data visualization environment for Supply Chain (SC).
