Nexedi offers internships for students or future engineers interested in open source software with possible employment at the end of the internship. The content of each internship is adapted to each personality and to the duration of the internship.

These internship topics can also be the first mission when hiring a confirmed developer on a permanent contract who is already heavily involved in the field of open source software.

The goal of this research topic is to implement Artificial Optical Inspection (AOI) of motherboards of small computers and routers. The result will be Open Source / Free Software combined with Open Source Hardware (open source industrial robot).

AOI has multiple purposes:

  • detect quality problems (eg. bad soldering, missing part in a package);
  • detect logistic attacks (eg. a "backdoor" component was added to the original design).

AOI is based on various techniques of vision, including - but not only - machine learning (scikit-image, scikit-learn, etc.). A Wendelin data-lake is involved to collect large sets of images. Data Sets will be published as open data.

The project will first target servers by Olimex, the world's largest designer of open source hardware. All PCB layouts of Olimex are available in open source using KiCAD open source PCB design software. Olimex is based on Bulgaria in the nice city of Plovdiv.
