Internship on Grace project
After the experience of Samar Ehab El-Bahrawi, another student has gained the opportunity to experience and to participate to the Grace project.

Esteban Arroyo Esquivel, student at the Polytechnic Institute of Bragança, has joined Università Politecnica delle Marche working on adaptive image pre-processing for automated quality control.

Here, the story of his experience:

My name is Esteban Arroyo Esquivel. I am a Costa Rican student of Industrial Engineering at the Polytechnic Institute of Bragança, Portugal.

Within the Grace project cooperation, I had the chance to complete a practical stage at Università Politecnica delle Marche. During my time there, I worked in the experimental phase of my master thesis project on adaptive image pre-processing for automated quality control. The project pursued the objective of adaptively enhancing the quality of pictures acquired in production lines, with the aim of improving effectiveness of the posterior object-detection algorithms used during the processing stage of the quality control procedures. The proposed approach was based on neural networks and image feature-extraction, and was conceived in the context of dynamic multi-agent systems.

The research personnel and the machine vision equipments available at the Measurements Lab of Università Politecnica delle Marche were of great help for the achievement of the experimental results of the project. Moreover, I had the chance to learn alternative vision-based techniques and expand my experience in issues related to robotics and programming.

Finally, Grace project gave me the chance to share ideas with researchers from different countries, improve the quality of my research project and gain valuable knowledge in the area of automated industrial systems.
