- 09-12With Weston Robot's ready to deployed mobile robots, researchers from Cyber Security Research Centre @ NTU can focus on their cyber security research, while spending less effort to debug robotic hardware issues, which will greatly accelerate the pace of their research and deployment.
Weston Robot Empowers NTU Autonomous ResearchA team of NTUsg roboticists took home two awards at an autonomous driving competition organized by Waymo, the autonomous-vehicle subsidiary of Google. Using algorithms they developed, the team was able to predict where a vehicle would be eight seconds in the future with high accuracy – about 30 cm away from the actual position in real-world data.
MPA Deployed Robot to Protect Singapore from COVID-19While it is challenging to recruit security guards to continuously check who are not wearing masks, or who are standing too close (than 1 meters, for example) in public areas. It is also difficult to ask a cleaning staff to disinfect every corner of offices/kitchens at high frequency. However, these types of tasks fit to the domain of robotics and AI. Weston Robot developed two robots: UV-light disinfection robot and Mask&Social-Distancing checking robot to combat the challenges.
NUS Libraries Use Robots to Remind Student Wearing MaskHow to remind students wearing masks all the time while they are doing the final-prep for the coming semester-end exams? NUS libraries deployed Weston Robot's mask detection robot at their main library, school of medicine library, and school of business library.
Mask Detection and Social Distance Checking Robot Deployed at MCIAI technology can be used detect those who are not wearing masks, or who are standing too close with others (e.g. not following social distance measuring). Before the official deployment, we can take many pictures (with or without masking) using our cameras on the robot from different locations at Sentosa, and train the AI model to understand the difference between masking and unmasking, as well as estimating social distances.
Weston Robot Delivered Ackerman-Driven Autonomous Robot to NTUTo develop autonomous driving related algorithms with a real car is very expensive and requiring large spaces and tracks. However, Ackerman-drive robot, which mimics the behaviour of a car is superiors in many aspects. Autonomous driving research team in Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore, adopts the Ackerman-drive robot from Weston Robot to conduct their advanced research.
Weston Robot Delivered FDA-approved Exoskeletons to Rehabilitation Research Institute of SingaporeThe FDA-approved PHOENIX Medical Exoskeleton is the world's lightest and most advanced exoskeleton designed to help people with mobility disorders to be upright and mobile. In the clinic, at home, and in the workplace Phoenix has successfully enabled many individuals to stand up, walk about, and speak to peers eye-to-eye.
Weston Robot Delivered Fully Autonomous Construction Inspection Robot to NTUWeston Robot built a fully autonomous inspection robot with school of EEE at NTU, Singapore, to enable researchers to develop AI-based applications for construction inspection. The entire robot is ROS compatible with extensive interfaces for further development. With this autonomous robot, researchers from NTU can quickly leverage to test, validate, and deploy their research.
Volvo China Adopts SuitX Exoskeletons for Workers' Added SafetyVolvo's safety technology is world-famous, and SuitX, as an innovative technology company, is committed to the protection of workers be it in the industrial or medical field. This coincides with Volvo's philosophy.
Vesuvius Malaysia Adopts Exoskeletons for Loading and Packing TasksFounded in 1994, Vesuvius Malaysia is a UK-headquartered manufacturer of clay firebrick and other heat resisting clay products. With the aid of BackX, the workers now are able to carry 25kg of clay without worrying about experiencing back pain.
