Internship Options
At the Inspiration Center we are currently interested in developing the following innovation and strategy based topics, if you are interested in working on one of these topics please mention it in your motivational letter. If you have another fantastic idea that is not listed below but would make a great contribution to the center, please also mention it in your letter.

– Innovation & IoT, prototype a Smart solution using sensor data on an industrial process or even developed for the Eindhoven office
Companies are gathering sensor data at an unprecedented rate to bring valuable information to business operators anywhere and anytime. IoT solutions enable all companies to move into the digital age in a scalable cost-efficient way. IoT is the cornerstone for companies to improve their business and industrial processes or to develop new and smart products. Combined with data analytics you can create dashboard and control towers on almost every situation you have in mind.

– The Connected Worker, create a digital assistant for the future workforce
The industrial employee of the future needs to have a wealth of knowledge available at its fingertips. Via augmented reality they can have a digital assistant with manuals, blueprint and other instructions readily available.

– Digital Twin, create a 3D augmented reality copy of a real-life plant or process
Companies these days need to make important decision faster than ever before and require flexible solutions to support the decision making process. A digital twin is a virtual representation of any real-life manufacturing, quality, maintenance or logistic process. This 3D model can be made with for example Siemens Tecnomatix and subsequently combined with a Microsoft HoloLens or Vuzix Augmented reality smart glasses you can bring the digital twin to life.

– Advanced Image Scanning, combine robotics and image analysis to speed up existing testing processes
The amount of physical tests companies need to take is rapidly expanding, via automated scanning solution which can directly analyze and recognize complex situation and make split-second decisions the amount of tests that can be done on a daily basis can be massively increased. You can develop a solution where robotics and image processing can speed up a process such as spare part sorting, oxidation (rust) growth on industrial hardware or bacterial growth in petri dishes.

– Robotic Process Automation, AI is transforming the world as we know it, you can develop an robot that can takes over a business process
Artificial Intelligence and Robotics are shaping and evolving the industrial world as we know it. The machines around us become intelligent and repetitive tasks are all being automated. This is more than a trend, it is a different way to think about business processes and how they are solutioned to a completely different digital workforce of the future.

– 5G, the next Wireless Revolution, Connected Automated Vehicles (CAV) process an unparalleled amount of data that require new solutions
The amount of sensor data in the world is growing exponentially every year. A single CAV produces up to 4TB of data per day, which is more than 3,000 people combined. With an expected 94 million CAV’s to be sold in 2026 the amount of data generated by autonomous cars will exceed the data generated by the human population. Can you utilize 5G in the Inspiration Center to cope with this data expansion?
