Curtin University’s Computer Systems Engineer student, Nhan Dao, recently completed a 3-month summer internship with us as part of the Innovation Central Perth (ICP)’s Summer Internship Program.
The Summer Internship Program is ICP’s initiative to partner with its industry clients, offering $6,000 tax-free scholarship to students to solve challenging technology problems.
The internship is part of an effort to improve the internet-connected tracking software that comes with Roborigger. The built-in software collects data from every lift including time, weight, and the location of the loads being lifted.
Nhan worked with our engineers on two key areas, to improve digital signal processing for lift detection and monitoring, and to develop a working AI model for human detection.
This will give Roborigger the ability to recognise and detect human bodies below the load where they should not be during operation.
According to Nhan, the internship with Roborigger was very rewarding.
“Just being able to see the development of this new technology and the challenges it must overcome to be commercially successful gave me the insight to what the real world is like.”
Nhan is now continuing this project as our Computer Systems Engineer intern for the rest of the year.
Innovation Central Perth is an industry-academia collaboration centre led by Cisco with partners Curtin University, Woodside, and CSIRO’s Data 61.
