DAAD Speaker Series_2 June 2017-web and email banner

Control & Automation companies are crucial for the successful operation of industrial plants, infrastructure and buildings. Nine of the world’s top 10 Control & Automation companies already have significant operations here, making Singapore the leading process control hub in Asia. Today, many companies are also at the frontier of Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) adoption and the global trend of digitisation, enabled and enhanced by IoT technologies across all sectors are changing the face of automation. Businesses are now looking towards transforming their products, services and business models to ensure that they are connected real-time so as to stay relevant in a data-driven marketplace. With the appropriate application of IoT technologies, new service offerings such as predictive and preventive remote maintenance, optimised asset management and big data-enabled production life-cycle management will be made possible.

 

Through sharing from experience academics and researchers on key emerging trends and developments, we hope to raise awareness in tackling modern manufacturing issues, from the inception of products to robotics application, focusing on modern manufacturing techniques and practices while addressing the fundamental science and technology involved.

“Industrial Robotics & its Applications”

Dr Tao Pey Yuen
Research Scientist
Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology (SIMTech), A*STAR

 

Robotics applications are well established within many industries, such as automotive, aerospace, marine and semiconductors. However, they are generally limited to high volume production without the need for contact with the environment. In this talk, we will look into the research and development of technologies that enables robots to be used in high mix low volume production and contact type operations such as cleaning, polishing, deburring etc.

 

“Interactive Urban Robot IURO”

Prof. Martin Buss
Chair for Automatic Control Engineering
Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
Technische Universität München (TUM)

 

The robot IURO is able to explore an urban pedestrian environment without prior map knowledge and without GPS. It is able to find navigation goals by actively approaching pedestrians and asking them for help. The talk will survey some of the research topics and explain the system architecture of IURO. The IURO project asks many questions in the direction of human-robot partnerships, which is one the most important research areas in all ageing societies including Singapore.

 

“3D Vision & Intelligence for Automatic Visual Inspection”

Dr. Xiong Wei
Lab Head and Senior Scientist
Institute for Infocomm Research (I2R), A*STAR

 

Control and automation are the use of control systems for the operation of equipment/devices to achieve certain process goals. With the developments of robotics, computer vision, and artificial intelligence, modern automatic control has been applied in complex operations and processes in factories and our daily lives. One of the major tasks in factory automation and product quality control is to collect and analyse the visual information during the production and processes. In this talk, I will introduce research activities in Institute for Infocomm Research, A*STAR, on intelligent visual inspection using machine vision, computer graphics, image analysis, pattern recognition and artificial intelligence.
