VROC approached iPREP with a need to fast track a range of core activities and an interdisciplinary team of researchers including a Data Analyst, Computer Science Engineer and Mechanical Engineer proved to be the perfect fit for the job.
The students contributed valuable findings including how to process specific data sets of real-world data to determine the time to failure for each piece of equipment and comparing these methods/techniques to VROC’s existing methods for both accuracy and speed of processing. The team also found a way to automatically select the best algorithms and combination of input parameters from the big data set to provide the required predictions.
Director of VROC Trevor Bloch said engaging the interdisciplinary team as part of the iPREP program clearly paid off. “Their differing personalities and thought process has been extremely beneficial in solving the challenge VROC gave them,” he said. “Their individual contribution to the team has meant that all perspectives in terms of risk and alternatives has been thoroughly explored. As a tech start-up, VROC are always looking for talented individuals with a genuine passion for new technology, but most importantly, individuals who are not afraid to push the boundary and look outside the ‘norm’.”
