Test-Bedding and Demonstration of Innovative Research

The Test-Bedding and Demonstration of Innovative Research funding initiative aims to use Government lead demand efforts to demonstrate feasibility of innovative technologies and catalyse adoption by private sector. These projects involve partnerships with local industrial partners to ensure adoption or commercialisation of the developed technology solution.

QuicaBot (short for Quality Inspection and Assessment Robot) can move autonomously to scan a room in minutes, using high-tech cameras and laser scanners to pick up building defects like cracks and uneven surfaces. The robots can upload 3D data of the scans to the cloud and inform the human operator, who can then inspect critical and complex defects. It is invented by scientists from Nanyang Technological University, co-developed with JTC Corporation and local start-up CtrlWorks. (Press release)

PictoBot can automatically scan its environment using its optical camera and laser scanner, to navigate and paint walls up to 10 metres high with its robotic arm. This enables it to paint a high interior wall 25 per cent faster than a crew of two painters, improving both productivity and safety. It is invented by scientists from Nanyang Technological University and co-developed with JTC Corporation and local start-up Aitech Robotics and Automation (Aitech). (Press release)
