DATE: 18th May 2018
TIME: 9.00 am – 1.30 pm
Event Organizer and Representative: IEEE UCSI STUDENT BRANCH,  Dr.M.K.A.Ahamed Khan, 

As a leader in power and automation technologies that enable utility and industry customer to improve their performance while lowering environmental impact, ABB integrates the competitive advantage of its R&D strength, global experience and technical know-how with local customer interface, production and engineering capabilities. Backed by a presence of more than a century in Malaysia, ABB’s innovations have helped customers to use electrical power more efficiently, to increase industrial productivity and to lower environmental impact in a sustainable way.

Being one of the leaders in the field of Power and Automation, a half a day trip was organized to ABB in order to facilitate the students to have full access to the production unit and the automation and Robotic center. More than 35 students from various engineering disciplines were attended. During the visit students not only experienced the industry working environment, they also learned how the main distribution control switch panel was manufactured, tested and supplied for the outside market. The core value behind Robots in industries in manufacturing and automation area was well received and accepted by the students. They also had hands on experience in programming the latest robots manufactured by ABB. The visit also opened opportunities for the students to apply for the jobs and to do their Internship training in ABB. The event ended at 1.00pm by a warm thankful speech by the event organiser.

 

 

IEEE-RAS in Singapore Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Challenge 2018

Monday, May 28th, 2018

VENUE: Singapore Polytechnic, SINGAPORE
DATE: 9 March, 2018
TIME: 9 am – 3 pm
Event Organizer and Representative: IEEE-OES Singapore, Dr. Ahmad Anas Yusof – IEEE-RAS-Malaysia 
Sponsored: IEEE-RAS Malaysia

Congratulations to the National AUV Team Panther and Tuah!!!!

National Team AUV Panther has won the second fastest AUV in the qualification rounds, finishing the 10-meter qualifying range in 10.3 seconds. Having completed the first task in the final round, the team has been ranked 7th place from 46 competitors around the globe. The competing teams came from Russia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Thailand, Sri Lanka, China, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Indonesia.

SAUVC is a distinguished competition and discussion platform among underwater robotics teams worldwide. The event is organized by the IEEE Oceanic Engineering Society of Singapore with support from Singapore Polytechnic. UTeM Team AUV Panther and Tuah are represented by students from FKM, FKE and FTK, accompanied by IEEE-RAS representative, Dr. Ahmad Anas Yusof.

 

The competition is a great learning ground for students to experience the challenges of AUV system engineering and develop skills in the related fields of mechanical, electrical and software engineering. The SAUVC competition challenges all teams to build an AUV which can perform given tasks. These tasks are simulations of tasks that the operational AUVs would have to be able to perform. The competition is held in a swimming pool and each team’s AUV will have to perform 4 tasks. The speed and accuracy at which the AUV performs tasks will be used to decide the winner of the competition. The tasks involve four widely faced challenges underwater such as AUV navigation, visual identification, acoustic localization and robotic manipulation.

Professional Talk – Advancement in Medical Robotics

Friday, August 11th, 2017

VENUE: Seminar Hall., B.S. Abdul Rahman University, Chennai, India.
DATE: 11 August, 2017
TIME: 11 am – 1 pm
Event Organizer and Chair: Dr. AHAMED KHAN & Dr. Najumunissa Begum, Dr. Kaja Mohideen.

Talk Overview
Since 2010, the demand for industrial robots has accelerated considerably due to the ongoing trend toward automation and the continued innovative technical improvements in industrial robots. In the last 10 years, the uptake of surgical robots, throughout the world especially in US, Europe including UK and Australia is extensive. In Asia, these machines are becoming popular with the hospitals in major cities and the usage is progressively increasing. The surgical robot has three components; console, patient cart and vision cart. The operation is performed by the surgeon through the robot. Robotic surgery has distinct advantages. It gives the surgeon a magnified 3D vision of the part requiring the operation and allows surgeons to do the procedure with great precision. Overall, robotic surgery allows the surgeon to perform a high quality operation for their patients. The introduction of minimally invasive techniques has transformed surgery in the past three decades. Patient benefits from mini-invasive surgery include less operative blood loss, less postoperative pain and consequently, reduced requirement of narcotics. RS for gastric cancer has been demonstrated to overcome intrinsic limitations of conventional laparoscopic surgery, thanks to the wristed instruments that allow multiple degrees of freedom, tremor filtering, three-dimensional vision, and a steady image, thus minimizing blood losses and surgical trauma and improving the surgeon’s dexterity when fine manipulation is required. This can be especially helpful during maneuvers in restricted fields and around major vessels, such as in extended lymphadenectomy. Many of these issues could explain the shorter learning curve of robotic gastric surgery compared to laparoscopy. In this talk the Trends in the market for Robot Industry and the evolution of modern techniques using Robotics in Surgery will be shared and potential future directions will be proposed.

At B.S. Abdul Rahman University, Faculty of Electronic and Instrumentation Engineering, and Electrical and Electronics Engineering, robotic subject is one of the main subject offered with many practical approaches. The main intention of providing this talk is to create interest in the field of robotics focused towards medical side.


The event started at 11 am with a key note address from the Head of Department Dr. Najumunissa Begum & the Dean Dr. Kajamohideen. During the key note address the Head and the Dean introduced the event speaker Dr. Ahamed Khan. Later Ahamed Khan briefed the audience [40 Degree level students and 4 post graduate students, 6 faculty staffs] the latest trends in the field of medical robotics.


The event ended at 1.30 pm.
