The Singapore R & D clinches a major award

Better Fencing Protection.

(Kuala Lumpur=Koreanpress) by Ramani Rathir = In November this year, Singapore’s Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) and its industry partners clinched one of the region’s most prestigious engineering honours, the ASEAN Outstanding Engineering Achievement Awards.

Two out of the three awards for Singapore went to A*STAR and their partners. The awards were presented at the Conference of the ASEAN Federation of Engineering Organisation (CAFEO) held in Jakarta.

The winning industry projects featured the latest technology in advanced materials for smart phones and intelligent signal processing for security fencing respectively:

 Eyefly3D – Making 3D Available for Anyone, Anytime, Anywhere: A development by A*STAR’s Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE), Nanoveu Pte Ltd and Temasek Polytechnic (TP), which is based on nanoimprint technology, produced the flexible EyeFly3D screen protector that turns mobile devices into glasses-free 3D viewing platforms.

Together with software applications developed for Apple iOS and Android platforms, the simple plastic film allows users to play 3D content and also converts 2D pictures into 3D easily.

AgilFence Perimeter Intrusion Detection System (PIDS): The Institute for Infocomm Research (I²R) together with ST Electronics (Satcom and Sensor Systems) and Changi Airport Group developed a security fencing which incorporates a unique intelligent adaptive signal processing algorithm, allowing for reliable detection, location and response to perimeter intrusion.

This is the first successful deployment of such a large scale fiber Bragg grating-based perimeter intrusion detection system (PIDS) in the world.

Both projects were also presented with the Institution of Engineers (IES) Singapore Prestigious Engineering Achievement Awards 2013 last month.

Dr Tan Geok Leng, Executive Director of A*STAR’s Science and Engineering Research Council, said, “A*STAR is delighted to receive these two awards, and these joint honours with our industry partners reflect our strong partnership and the impact of our research on industry. This regional recognition also reflects on Singapore’s thriving IP landscape, which is the key to encouraging innovation and creativity.”

Alfred Chong, Chief, CEO and founder of Nanoveu Pte Ltd said, “To have our products recognized at a prestigious event like the ASEAN Outstanding Engineering Awards is very encouraging for the team and spurs us onto our next milestone. The awards are a terrific platform for small companies like ours to showcase how we turn innovative research into products that benefit consumers.”
From 2 to 3D

Lee Fook Sun, President of ST Electronics said, “Over the years, we have successfully nurtured a culture of innovation in ST Electronics, to the extent that many of our engineers are constantly striving to come up with clever and novel solutions to engineering problems that are so daunting, or are so routine that we often accept them as given.

This year, ST Electronics was conferred the IES Awards for three of our innovative system solutions - AgilFence PIDS, Smart Utilities Suite and Incident Management System. In the AgilFence solution, we are very happy to have I²R as our technology partner and CAG as the launch customer.

Since then, the AgilFence has gone on to win the support of several other customers, and we are confident that it will eventually be installed in many more airports and critical infrastructure around the world.”


Recently, A*STAR’s patent power scorecard was also ranked 2nd internationally by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), ahead of some of the world’s most reputable government organisations like NASA..
