MIGSAA Industrial Sandpit

On Friday 30th November, MIGSAA will host its annual Industrial Sandpit at ICMS, Bayes Centre, 47 Potterrow, Edinburgh EH8 9BT.

This will involve a series of presentations by industry/cross discipline partners. These presentations will give an overview of the type of mathematical problems being tackled/considered in Industry.

There is scope for the problems being presented to be developed further either via

  • a project for a team of project to tackle, or,
  • an exemplar problem during the 2019 ICMS Modelling Camp.

The provisional programme for the afternoon is below.

Modeling power line conductors from aerial point cloud data

NM Group conduct LiDAR surveys of power lines, we produce models from the point cloud analysis and reporting. The modelling process requires the creation of polyline strings for each of the conductors. This process is semi-automated using third party tools but still very time consuming. We would like to develop in-house tools to automatically identify and model power line conductors from aerial LiDAR data using an approximate centre line and structure locations as an initial starting point.

Manufacturing of particulate products: challenges, modelling, measurements and industrial applications

This talk will consider the challenges in the modelling of particulate processes, data analysis and linking the modelling and experiments together in a data rich environment.
