The NUS Advanced Robotics Centre (ARC) contributed a significant part at the first Asian Robotics Week 2015 (ARW2015) which was organised at the Marina Bay Sands from 12 to 13 November 2015.
Professor Marcelo Ang, the Director of ARC was the ARW2015 Symposium Chair.
ARC also showcased our research projects at the Asian Robotics Week Trade Exhibition to several hundred trade and industry visitors, including Mr. Chan Chun Sing, Secretary-General, National Trades Union Congress who was the GOH for the event.
Mr Oliver Tian, President of SIAA, said, “Today, robotics is not only about the ‘mechanical arm’ residing in the factory. With the convergence of technologies, robotics takes an evolutionary approach that can be applied in non-industrial domains such as Healthcare, Education, and the services industry. There are significant innovations which are transforming into commercially viable solutions in different parts of the world and a service robot industry is definitely in the making. Hence, businesses need to see these innovations, learn new adoptions of robotics and take the bold step to leverage on technology to stay successful.”
