SINGAPORE’S approach towards Industry 4.0 is “not simply about technology”, said Senior Minister for Trade and Industry Koh Poh Koon on 17 Oct 2019. Mr Koh spoke at the Future of Manufacturing Summit, the flagship conference of the Industrial Transformation Asia-Pacific (ITAP) – a Hannover Messe event, held at the Singapore Expo. In his speech, he noted that public-private sector partnerships, as well as a skilled workforce, are key to Singapore’s efforts to shape the future of manufacturing. To that end, one such instance of empowering workforce is the industrial exoskeletons SuitX, which Mr Koh tried on himself.
The non-powered exoskeletons help workers reduce the risk of getting injuries by 60%, via its novel ergonomic design. It is made for daily use with non to minimum maintenance required. Endorsed by Singapore Industrial Automation Association (SIAA), exoskeletons complements to places where automation is less an ideal due to cost concern, and workers are still in the loop. Protecting the workers from fatigue can essentially create a more pleasant working environment, and achieve higher productivity.
- 06-053D lidar is one of the key enabling technologies that helps robots see and understand our world. Ouster's 3D lidars have been widely adopted in autonomous driving and robotics research and deployment. Weston Robot now officially partners with Ouster to promote the lidar-based navigation for outdoor robotics applications.
Remote-Controlled USV for Garbage Collection at Singapore PortUnmanned Surface Vessel (USV) equipped with M1 5G perform garbage collection and water surveillance at Marina Keppel Bay (MKB) Singapore to test M1 5G coverage on the water area. A piece of good equipment that reduces water pollution (no gasoline required), remote cleaning, creating more high-tech jobs and cleaner water area for all to enjoy.
Table Cleaning Robot Tried at Hawker CentersThe system equips with one lidar-based autonomous navigation AMR base, a 6-DOF collaborative robot arm with a customized-designed holders for two cloth, AI/vision system. The entire motion planning and computer vision runs on NVIDIA Jetson XAVIER. The robot autonomously travels to each corner of the table, detects whether there are some valuable items on the table before making the cleaning procedures.
