Proposal Ideas:

AI and Robotics for Quality and Risk Management in Industrial Harsh Conditions

Objective of Proposal Idea:
This project is based on the perceived potential of the use of robotics in harsh conditions through the utilization of AI, next generation wireless sensors (IoT platform), wireless networks (5G), image analysis, and autonomous robotics. The possibility of using drones and mobile robotics in monitoring/inspection has been sparking the interest in the R&D field, especially in industrial harsh conditions. However as per recent research of drones in harsh conditions of mines, the main challenges drones face in harsh conditions are GPS-denied environment, lack of wireless signal, confined space issues, and high concentration of dust and toxic gases. Hence this project[...]
