      For the robots to collect dust they need to know where to go. In a space station it is undoable to just let the robots roam free, as in without smart guidance, throughout the station. Therefore we need to embedded intelligence into the system. Intelligence for this is multiparted. Over-time al... Visit Project

      The aim of this project is to gather and store videofootage which is gathered from cameras in and on planes. This data must be stored in a No-SQL Database, for maximum performance. This information can be used by investigators to gather information about the cause of an accident or crash. Visit Project
