National University of Singapore Key Developments

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Partners with the National University of Singapore Connective Ubiquitous Technology for Enbodiments Center to Work on Location-Aware Information System for Buses

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) partnered with the National University of Singapore (NUS) Connective Ubiquitous Technology for Enbodiments (CUTE) Center to work on a location-aware information system for buses, called the Communication Infrastructure of Transport Information for Universal Service (CITIUS). The system will provide bus operators and commuters with area information based on the precise, real-time location and condition of the bus. CITIUS brings together elements of transportation, location and Point-of-Interest (POI) information into its design, and collects location and tracking data through a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS). Through this collected information, CITIUS is ‘aware’ of the real-time location of the bus and will display this information on digital signage onboard the bus. The signage will also display information regarding potential road hazards ahead, such as speed limits, sharp turns, etc., in addition to information on nearby public facilities and the name of the next bus stop. The system uses mounted sensors to gather vehicular activity and traffic conditions over the cellular network, helping CITIUS to function as a remote monitoring system. MHI's positioning technology has developed over the years through its smart community demonstration projects in Malaga, Spain; Kansai Science City (Keihanna), Japan; and through the development of the GNSS-based Electronic Fee Collection (EFC). Traffic congestion has become a significant problem in many Asian cities that have undergone sustained rapid economic growth. CITIUS looks to combat this challenge and serve as a potential solution for transportation issues.

Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology and the National University of Singapore Announces Joint Lab Collaboration

ASTAR SIMTech and NUS Faculty of Engineering have launched two joint labs in Natural Fibre Composites and Large Format Machining to boost R&D in manufacturing and support the local industry needs. New scholarships are being provided to develop talent for these labs. The Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology (SIMTech) and the National University of Singapore (NUS) Faculty of Engineering jointly inked an agreement to launch two Joint Labs, in the areas of Natural Fibre Composites and Large Format Machining, to move the local precision engineering industry into high value-added manufacturing. This collaboration builds capabilities and develops technologies to help the complex equipment, aerospace, and marine & offshore clusters. The SIMTech-NUS Joint Labs also serve as platforms to nurture R&D manpower for industry, transforming them into centres of excellence in their respective technical areas to benefit more industry sectors. Twenty PhD scholarships will be provided to develop R&D talent for manufacturing research conducted in the Joint Labs. The Joint Lab will tackle the challenges faced by the industry such as distortion, inaccuracy, high aspect ratio, and harsh working environments that can cause tool failures in the machining of large and complex components, mainly on difficult-to-machine alloys for various marine, oil & gas and aerospace applications. As such, the Joint Lab aims to be a leading research centre in large format machining science and technology, training the future workforce to support high value machining of large parts with complex surfaces, high precision thin-walled structures over large areas and machined features with extremely high aspect ratios. This lab focuses on the development of cutting-edge technologies and competencies enhancing the competencies of local precision manufacturing, maintenance, repair and overhaul companies. This will increase Singapore's economic competitiveness through the localisation of high value manufacturing of large and complex parts.
