This project proposes an application of Fuzzy-Evolutionary Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) algorithm for autonomous navigation of mining robots in underground mines. This project aims to develop techniques that are useful for mining automation activities, particularly for infrastructureless navigation of load-haul-dump vehicles and drilling equipment. The intern will use current equipment facilities available with the intelligent systems group at C-CORE to collect data and to validate the proposed SLAM algorithm.
Employee timetabling problems form a large class of widely-encountered issues in service organizations. Often, the issue lies in the design of work shifts, which often have to satisfy many complex regulatory constraints coming from legislation and contractual agreements. The client, Omega Optimisation, was looking for a unified and flexible solution for these shift scheduling problems which address legal issues, activity requirements and labour costs.
The internship will concern studying the role and impact of specific proteins (in particular tubulin) in cancer, and the identification of prognostic markers of cancer progression and predictors of cancer response to existing and new compounds (mainly based on microarray data analysis and protein structure prediction).
Non-thermal atmospheric pressure plasmas have been studied for a variety of industrial applications such as pollution control, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) removal, car exhaust emission control and polymer surface treatment. For decades, non-thermal plasmas have been used to generate ozone for water purification. Non-thermal plasmas may be produced by a variety of electric discharges or electron beams. The basic feature of these technologies is that they produce plasmas in which the majority of the electrical energy goes into the production of energetic electrons.
Bombardier Aerospace, a world-leading manufacturer of innovative transportation solutions, from regional aircraft and business jets to rail transportation equipment, is interested in technology developments that improve aerodynamic design methods. One of their objectives is to improve the process in which aerodynamic parameters are introduced within the optimization process to facilitate the application of geometric and aerodynamic constraints.
