ID NUMBER:
TO116275

TECHNOLOGY OVERVIEW

This invention falls under the category of software. Generally, the industry may refer to it as middleware or control software. With the i4.0 bringing sweeping changes across the industry, the integration of disparate components has become critical due to the presence of proprietary legacy systems. This invention offers an intermediary communication for the different standalone machines to communicate and perform synchronised functions. Customer can engage us for extension of production functionalities and development.

TECHNOLOGY FEATURES & SPECIFICATIONS

The middleware was developed to integrate robotic and automation elements allowing different machines to communicate through the middleware console. This is a set of customisable software code developed for the purpose of communicating through the interfacing ports with different machines.

  • Customisation for the disparate systems
  • Options to connect by Augmenting existing systems through sensorisation of systems.
  • Allows heterogeneous systems to operate with customisation.  

POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS

Deployment for customisable systems such as in:

  • Automation / production environment;
  • Collaborative Robots control;
  • Retails

Market Trends & Opportunities

i4.0 is making sweeping changes to how products are manufactured and services offered. Connecting legacy systems with a more advanced system can be challenging. Manufacturing accounts for close to one-fifth of Singapore's GDP. It is paramount that companies adapt and transform in response to the intense pressure from regional competition coupled with rapidly changing demography locally. 

Benefits

The middleware was developed to integrate robotic and automation elements allowing different machines to communicate through the middleware console. This is a set of customisable software code developed for the purpose of communicating through the interfacing ports with different machines.

  • Adding capabilities to extend the usable life of your disparate systems
  • Potentially connecting your discrete processes.
  • Allows heterogeneous systems to operate with customisation.
