Hey, I heard about your BOGY internship at NDI Europe, and I have to say I’m really jealous! BOGY stands for “BerufsOrientierung am Gymnasium” (Vocational Orientation at the Highschool) and it seems like you got a lot of exciting insights during your one-week internship at NDI Europe.
Of course, you also got an insight into NDI’s technology. You learned about NDI’s electromagnetic positioning system and even tried controlling Minicraft (Is that Minecraft, the PC game?) on a Raspberry PI using Python. That sounds like a lot of fun and you certainly learned a lot about mapping different coordinate systems in 3-dimensional space.
During the week you also visited the sensor test station, experienced the characterization of field generators, observed the bombardment of hardware with an ESD (Electrostatic Discharge) gun and performed accuracy measurements with a so-called calibration cube (a cube with many sensors). You also learned about aluminum connection 4-wire measurement techniques and circuit development for an R-L calibrator (R stands for resistance, L for inductance).
This sounds like a really eventful week for you. We are glad if you were able to learn a lot during the week and the experience will help you in your future career.
