2022 Ocean of Data Challenge Award Winner

We are please to announce that Tanmoy Das, Ph.D. candidate in the Maritime Risk and Safety Research (MARS) group, has secured 2nd position in the Data Challenge. 

From May 2-20, the Halifax Port Authority, PSA Halifax, the Centre for Ocean Ventures and Entrepreneurship (COVE), and DeepSense, hosted a free Ocean of Data Challenge. This was an opportunity for post-secondary students to create a prototype of some kind that could range from a technology solution, a visualization, an infographic, or an overall plan to address how being a One Port City makes Halifax a more efficient and sustainable port. 

Tanmoy's project "Data Analytics: Visualizing Truck Delays in Halifax Port" looked at the problem, is truck delay independent on day or time of day? Using data analytics, it is visualized that delays are independent of months of year or days of week. However, there is a strong correlations between different parts of the day & the delay. The late-afternoon delays are higher than morning or evening ones.

Kudos to Tanmoy Das and their supervisor, Dr. Floris Goerlandt. Check out Tanmoy's Linkedin blog for additional information on the winning project.

2022 IISE Outstanding Senior Design Project Competition Winner

The IE group of Connor NewmanCatie ShawJustin Wright, and Matthew Laforest, were very honored to represent Dalhousie University and Canada in the Outstanding Senior Design Project Competition at the IISE Conference in Seattle. It was a great opportunity to attend a conference with likeminded people from different countries. While at the conference, the project impressed judges and other attendees. An aspect of the project that differentiated the group from other students was their implementation plan and scenario planning. These project components ensured a smooth transition of the solution to the client and that the solution would be sustainable. Congratulations to all team members!
