Flanders Make

Object Detection and Pose Estimation using Deep Learning

Flanders Make

Flanders Make is the strategic research centre for the manufacturing industry. Our mission is to strengthen the long-term international competitiveness of the Flemish manufacturing industry. That’s why we work together with SMEs and large companies on pre-competitive, industry-driven technological research, resulting in concrete product and production innovation in the vehicle industry, the manufacturing industry, and production environments.

Goal of the internship

This internship is focused on the study of different methods used for medical pills detection and recognition. The internship involves an analysis of state-of-art available methods/software in academia and industry.

The detection and identification of medical pills from a camera image streams on top of a conveyor belt is nowadays a popular challenge, especially at high speed.

The expected outcome: a real-time pills detection/identification system of at least five different types of pills with different colours and shapes running on a conveyer belt.

During this internship the focus for the pills detection identification will be set toward artificial intelligence (deep learning) techniques.

  • During this internship, after the state of art study you will have to:
    • collect, annotate data of the selected pills.
    • Then, implement, apply and benchmark the selected approaches
    • to perform the detection and identification the medical pills.

Profile Student

  • Bachelor degree in electrical engineering, computer science, or mechatronics;
  • Knowledge of image processing, computer vision, machine learning is highly recommended;
  • Good programming skills in Python or C++;
  • Experience in open-source deep learning frameworks such as TensorFlow or PyTorch is a plus;
  • Passionate by research and new technologies with focus on focus on applications that include machine learning, deep learning and computer vision;
  • Result oriented, responsible and proactive;
  • A good communicator, able to communicate in English;
