Intern (Technical Development)
Dyson opened its new Singapore Technology Centre earlier this year. In this ambitious, top secret centre, some of the world’s brightest engineering minds continually push the boundaries of science & technology.
Not too far away is West Park, our flagship advanced motor manufacturing facility where we develop our autonomous robotic manufacturing capabilities – more than 300 robots assemble our Dyson Digital Motor (DDM) here. It is here that we develop our next generation of motor technology.
Having launched the Supersonic recently, there is a requirement to improve the efficiency and accuracy of the temperature mapping test method in order to cater to growing demands of the test. One area that can be improved is the processing of thermal images, automation and the removal of the “human factor” in this analysis will increase robustness and throughput of this test, not to mention the strain relief on the eyes from scanning hundreds of thermal images.
Understanding how thermal imagery works
Determining parameters that will affect accuracy of test result (experiments should be carried out to determine accuracy)
Writing a labview code to reduce time required for processing thermal images
The candidate will be expected to write a labview code to reduce time used to sort & process thermal images generated during the test. The candidate must also design and perform experiments to verify hypothesis made through research, with opportunities to present hers/his findings at group meetings. At the end of the internship, a report summarizing his/her findings should be generated.
- Mechanical engineering background
- Labview proficiency: Key project involves writing a code to process thermal images taken using the thermal camera
- Proactive and self-motivated
