Overview

Development of embedded signal and image processing platform for computer vision and cloud-based data processing and visualisation are other aims of this PhD project. The results will contribute towards making OVST’s vision system ever competitive in the context of Industry 4.0 and IIOT.

The Vision Based Robotic Guidance and Monitoring Using 3D Sensor and Industrial Internet of Things project from Coventry University will be based in the Control, Sensing and Learning laboraotory at Coventry. 

This laboratory is part of the Institute of Future Transport and Cities (FTC) and is dedicated to the application of control, sensing and learning technologies for various industrial applications.

Oxford Vision and Sensor technology (OVST) designs and develops vision system for industrial application, especially for the automotive industry. The current sensor uses stereoscopic vision for 3D reconstruction. The literature reveals that the current research focuses predominantly on using stereoscopic vision that can measure the depth information only.

However, from an industrial point of view, full 3D models of the components under dynamic environmental conditions (e.g. varying lighting, uneven surface) are preferable to decrease the defective production rate.

Desired skills:

  • Software Programming: Experience of programming in C#, C++ or similar languages. The candidate should be able to understand software and hardware integration requirements.
  • Machine Vision: Experience in Image Processing, Computer Vision and Optics Design would be an advantage. A familiarity with image processing applications such as Halcon HDevelop or Cognex VisonPro would be of particular interest. A knowledge of more general mathematics packages such as Matlab or OpenCV would also be useful.
  • Electronics: Experience in Robotics and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) would also be advantageous. An ability to read a circuit schematic and some simple soldering skills would be appreciated.
  • General: Excellent communication skills and an ability to interact professionally and productively with other team members. The candidate should be able to present well, plan, be confident and proactive.

Academic Requirements

You need the following GPA score:

Required score: Upper Second Class

Applicants for graduate programs must have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to Upper Second Class on the UK Honour scale. Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on the UK Honour scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).

Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).

General Requirements

  • Eligibility: UK/EU/International graduates with the required entry requirements
  • Successful candidates will have at least a minimum 2:1 first degree in Computer Science, Engineering, Mathematics/Statistics, or a related discipline (and preferably a Masters degree).
  • Real passion for computer vision, and would like to be involved in building cutting edge technology in the fields of Machine Vision, Robotics and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
