Good results on Rolling Contact

This month we presented our work on Machine Learning used to assess Rolling Contact Fatigue damage progression in two different conference: IMEKO International Metrology Confederation) and ISMA (International Noise and Vibration Engineering Conference).

At the IMEKO in Belfast we presented the results of our project focused on vibrations as a tool to characterize materials.

At the ISMA in Leuven we introduced the preliminary results of the addition of an high-speed camera to our measurement system, to monitor in real-time the specimen surface.

Students now at the UPMC in Paris

First Semester is now starting in Brescia, but some of our master students are currently in Paris for their exchange semester at the University Pierre et Marie Curie.

Good luck and good work to all: have fun, but also make new experiences and develop skills to take back to your work in our lab!

First hand experience

In the first year of master at “rehabilitation” course in human science motion of Groningen University students are invited to experience directly the tools that are going to be key of their studies, in a funny and at the same time pragmatic way, to understand the difficulties that occur to people who use these tools daily, also in sports.

Our students Paolo and Ridi, working there, had the pleasure to participate and understand this context in a conscientious and recreative way.

First hand experience on what you are working on is important: every time you design a measurement system it’s best to understand deeply the subject beforehand.

The Lab at EMVA 2018

The Laboratory staff and the Students currently involved in Thesis Projects with us participated at the 2018 European Machine Vision Forum held in Bologna from the 5th to the 7th of September 2018. The theme of this edition was “Vision for Industry 4.0 and beyond“.

Below you can find the two posters that have been presented at the conference.

Wheelchair ergometer @ Groningen

We are working side by side with Groningen University to validate a new ergometer for persons and athletes in wheelchairs.

The device was developed by Groningen University and Lode: Servo engines, together with a load cell run on a feedback loop with a biomechanical model to reproduce overground behaviour.

MMTLab is involved with two of our master students, Paolo and Ridi, to design the calibration setup to validate the ergometer and understand its measurement accuracy in different conditions.

Collaboration with CSIC started this summer

During the summer our staff, including our Bachelor Student Marcello, went to Madrid, to work at a joint project on exoskeleton evaluation with the Cajal Institute. Here you can find some photos of our preliminary tests: more info on the project will be posted in the next days.
