One of the myRAS project, is National Robotics eXchange (NRX). NRX is a an online community portal that will bring together all local robotics professionals under one platform to nurture local talent, build connections withing the various clusters, keep these clusters informed of national policy and initiatives and engage and galvanize them to action for the betterment of the entire nation.
Who we are?
An Organisation that study on Robotics Design and Develop Robots for industrial also for commercially applicable. A group of 5 young men with ambitious ideas was formed in 2013, with help from Prof Engr Dr Ishkandar.
Prof Engr Dr Ishkandar Baharin, has had extensive experience in working in industry and academia in the field of robotics,automation and computer integrated manufacturing both locally and internationally.
He is currently active in professional organizations serving as Vice President for Malaysian Society for Engineering and Technology (MySET), Chairman for Malaysia Robotics and Automation Interest Group (myRAig), Executive Member of IEEE Robotics and Automation Society in Malaysia and Professor in Universiti Kuala Lumpur Malaysia France Institute.
Bionic hand allows amputee to feel again
With a new prosthetic, researchers have managed to restore the sense of touch for a Denmark man who lost his left hand nine years ago.
Bio-inspired robotic device could aid ankle-foot rehabilitation
A soft, wearable device that mimics the muscles, tendons and ligaments of the lower leg could aid in the rehabilitation of patients with ankle-foot disorders such as drop foot, said a robotics expert. Scientists have now developed an active orthotic device using soft plastics and composite materials, instead of a rigid exoskeleton.
Why NRX is important for us?
Nurture Robotics Talent
facilitates knowledge transference to new robotics engineers
Provides increased opportunities for both internships and mentorships
Showcase & encourage accomplishments
Helps engineers gauge what talents & skill sets most demanded by market & allows them to tailor own development
Provides inspiration & a reference point for students
Connect Various Clusters
More dynamic communications - Clusters will have more access to each other in ways not currently available
Increase awareness of robotics industry across nation
Easier to unearth opportunities
Facilitates increased cross-industry / cross-cluster collaboration
Easier collection of analysis and feedback
Provides engineers with a more holistic & strategic view of the industry
Keeping Clusters Informed
Keeps all players in the robotics industry informed of changes in policy / emphasis
Allows market players to react faster to changes in policy
Facilitates two-way communication
Shortens feedback loop
Enables research & surveys
Allows better pulse on developments occurring in the trenches
Engaging The Nation
More dynamic communications
Allows members to showcase and share their knowledge by being more actively involved with MySET-myRAig
Nurtures advocates & champions
Encourages co-creation between myRAig & clusters
Generates positives word-of-mouth
