Motion Metrics Interns

Each semester, Motion Metrics selects a handful of co-op students to undertake challenging yet well-defined projects to nurture from start to finish. This semester we welcomed five interns to complete various projects during their semester with us. At the end of their contract, the students present their accomplishments to the company and go head to head to win an honorable grand prize based on the highest number of votes!

  • JackShovelMetrics™ Hardware Improvements. Jack was responsible for performing thermal tests on our ShovelMetrics™ CPU, as well as working with Amin on a microcontroller. Jack was also the winner of our intern grand prize!
  • Amin – ShovelMetrics™ Software Development. Amin utilized a microcontroller to create a custom hardware data logging solution to record key maintenance indicators such as voltage, temperature, fan speed and orientation of our ShovelMetrics™ CPU.
  • Yuriy – Tradeshow Shovel Demo’s. Yuriy was responsible for redesigning our model hydraulic shovel demo. This demo made an appearance at CIM in Vancouver and will be headed to MINExpo this September.
  • Declan – PortaMetrics™ Development. Declan was responsible for implementing the new PortaMetrics tagging software. This software allows users to capture and tag images, simplifying the log organization and search process.
  • Nazanin- LoaderMetrics™ Development.  Nazanin worked on improving our LoaderMetrics™ neural networks, for our latest deep learning bucket and tooth detection algorithms.

Co-op students and interns receive mentoring from our Motion Metrics project supervisors, allowing them to gain valuable industry insights and hands on experience. Indeed, many of our long-term employees today are former co-op students. To apply for an internship, contact
