Active learning for visual detection on inspection robots
Robotics vehicles deployed at Hydro-Québec up to now are still mainly manually operated and human intervention is continuously required. The project aims to equip Hydro-Québec's current and future fleet of inspection robots with autonomous inspection capabilities. The intern will leverage breakthroughs in artificial intelligence to enable robotic vehicles to realize real-time automated visual inspection of the company's infrastructure and use a simply and securely deployable robotic vehicle to perform the company’s first fully autonomous power line components inspection mission. The large-scale deployment of autonomous inspection robots will have a major impact to help Hydro-Québec in asset management and gain in operational efficiency.
