My name is Morten Kals, and I am enrolled in the Engineering Physics program at UBC.
I made this website to give a sense of who I am and show some of my technical projects.
Below is a general overview of related items and links. Use the navbar to access a more comprehensive organization of the contents.
The UBC Ecohydrology research group collects data continuously from streams all across the lower mainland to study how land use practices influence interactions between hydrological and ecological processes. For my second Capstone project, I worked on developing a pico hydropower generator that the Ecohydrology group can deploy in remote streams to power their sensor systems.
ENPH 253 is a core robotics-course for the Engineering Physics program at UBC that I took during the summer term of 2016. Teams of four work on a fully automated system to accomplish a specified task in a competitive environment.
Family, skiing, unicycling, mountain biking, paragliding, speedriding, playing the piano and gardening are some of my interests.
My brother Johannes in Aurland, Norway.
How I got my first 3D printer before I moved to Canada.
I have had two internships with the hardware team at Arista Networks.
Erik and I started an online 3D printer hub through 3D Hubs two summers ago. We provide 3D printing services to local Vancouver customers.
An agile 250-class FPV quad-copter, the Race-Quad is designed for precise operation in possibly confined environments.
My first Co-op term, where I worked as a project engineer with emphasis on quality control.
Areal camera-platform with 1.5 kg potential payload.
Autonomous electric vehicles will soon need a way to charge without human interactions. For my first Capstone project, I worked to develop a prototype capable of autonomously connecting the charge plug to various electric cars.
Sunset at University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada.
Building upon the “Getting Things Done” workflow of David Allen, I am engaged in an ongoing effort to optimise efficiency by adopting and developing my ability to remain on schedule and effectively prioritising efforts between coursework, examinations, and projects.
My first coding experience was with iOS during high-school. I have done multiple projects for the platform, two of which have made their way onto the App Store.
