This project was developed at IFIN-HH (Horia Hulubei National Institute for R&D in Physics and Nuclear Engineering) and no, it’s not about parrots. It’s about particle accelerators. The acronym means Particle Accelerator Observation Tool.
Our objective was to create a detailed panel that gets a lot of metrics from the 3MV particle accelerator that’s inside IFIN-HH. We built a system around the SCADA architecture using 1 Raspberry PI, 4 Ardunio Yun and 2 HD cameras. When we got some nice amounts of data we applied some ML algorithms, of course.
After finishing the project we were invited to the “Researchers Night” (Noaptea cercetatorilor) and got 3rd place at a project presentation.
That was an experience.
