Many of our internship students choose Weston Robot as their first job after graduation. CNA wrote a very good article about the local robotics ecosystem in Singapore. I often (if not always) recommend my students (including internships) to join startups as their first jobs, especially these startups who haven't raised funds, so that students can:
(1): To work with the startups' founders to earn every cents, to appreciate the amount of effort you need to put to earn 1 dollar from customers, and to receive criticism from customers, not matter it is your fault or not. The customers doesn't care whether you are a professor or not, only SLA resolution time matters.
(2): To quick close the entire develop-and-deployment loop, from customers' requirements, to the first quick-and-dirty prototype, and to iterate and iterate, to provide after-sales supports. Sometimes you need to sleep inside the factory to push the "老师傅" to expedite the manufacturing for you.

- 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.
