Enabling Interpretable Sorting Of Items By Multiple Attributes
Lists are an indispensable part of the online experience, often used to show many results, such as products, web pages, and food dishes. These items can be neatly sorted by a desired attribute like price, relevance, or healthiness. Listed items often have multiple attributes. However, instead of being able to sort multiple attributes simultaneously, consumers are currently limited to sorting only one attribute at a time. This makes searching for the desired item tedious and confusing. Imma Sort supports interpretable and multi-attribute sorting. Sorting for two or more attributes is possible. In contrast to existing search technology, Imma Sort trades off the smoothness of the sorted trend for the main attribute to increase ease of prediction for other attributes, by sorting them more approximately. Results for specific attributes can be made smoother by setting higher importance weights.
IoT Water Flow Monitoring System
This technology offer presents an Internet of Things (IoT) real-time system that monitors the water consumption of toilet facilities to supplement its Building Management Systems (BMS). At the core of this system are water sensors attached to the mechanical water meter. It can unobtrusively keep track of water-flow volume, pressure and temperature. As connected devices, these sensors are integrated to an IoT smart gateway to enable both local and remote monitoring and analytics capabilities.   With an analytics engine running in the background, usage patterns can be established, water pressures optimized and contingency alerts like leakages can be addressed before utility costs even become an issue. Therefore, this water-flow monitoring solution provides building owners and management with an intelligent and accurate overview of utility consumption in their facility. The system is fully customizable and configurable based on user’s requirements. 
Intelligent Soft Robotic Gripping Solutions
Various industries such as agri-harvesting, food handling sectors and e-commerce handle a wide range of products every day. These products come in a diverse range of shapes, sizes and packaging materials, and are mostly still handled by humans as there is no one gripping solution in the market that is able to accommodate different products. In order to handle different products, multiple grippers and tool changers are required and this results in high operating costs. This technology offer aims to resolve the limitations of current commercial grippers by developing universal soft robotic gripping solutions. Grippers with multiple gripping modes and adjustable grip poses have been developed. These features can be auto adjusted by the in-house object detection model and control system based on the shapes and sizes of the individual items being gripped. Fabricated with 3D printing technologies, the gripper and finger designs can be easily customized and optimized for specific gripping requirements.
Enhancing Construction Safety and Productivity with Video Analytics
Current methods of monitoring construction safety and productivity are tedious, costly and prone to human errors. Resulting in operations being non-compliant, dangerous and inefficient which leads to project delays, cost overruns and even reputational damage. This technology offers an enhanced safety and productivity tracking solution in the construction industry by leveraging on video analytics to detect safety hazards and high-risk scenarios as well as productivity insights. It provides actionable insights in the form of alerts, charts and reports to enable safety officers and project managers to make better-informed decisions for their operations.
Reactive Oxygen Generating Additive For Antimicrobial Protection And Air Purification
This technology is derived from photodynamic therapy and uses a photosensitizer molecule as the active agent for long-lasting, anti-microbial effect and air purification. This photosensitizer relies on the activation by light irradiation to produce active oxygen and reactive oxygen species (ROS) which can kill bacteria, viruses, fungi and mold, as well as disintegrate volatile organic compounds (e.g. formaldehyde) on contact.   The molecule is a conjugated compound based on an extraction from plant-based polylysine and an edible mineral. This technology disrupts the traditional use of toxic chemicals to kill microbes by replacing it with a safer, reactive oxygen generating catalytic molecule. It is effective against microbe contamination, minimising transmission of diseases. The technology has been formulated into various applications such as paints, textiles, hygiene products and polymeric films to name a few.
Natural Antimicrobial Agent For Broad Spectrum Applications
Antimicrobials are additives typically added to products with the aim to destroy or inhibit the growth of microbes. In view of the current global pandemic, the use of antimicrobials has become more prevalent. Currently, such antimicrobials are synthetic chemicals, which are often associated with drawbacks such as cytotoxicity and tendency for resistance development. The technology on offer is a natural antimicrobial agent derived from the valorisation of food waste. Using a proprietary clean label extraction technology, this natural antimicrobial agent exhibits good potency against a broad spectrum of microbes, including bacteria and viruses. More importantly, the valorisation and extraction process is 100% clean and eco-friendly, without the use of chemicals. This technology is highly processible, able to withstand thermal and/or pressurized treatment and compatible with both aqueous- and oil-based solvents. The superior processability and natural origin implies that it can be applied to many different applications across various industries including biomedical, food, personal care, materials, etc.
Smart Manufacturing Video Analytics via CCTV
The technology offers a video analytics solution for smart manufacturing. The purpose of the technology is to make manufacturing more efficient and to create a safer environment for employees. It is designed to optimise the manufacturing process by ensuring the proper use of manufacturing space and conducting quality control checks on products. This ensures that products comply with standards and are not missing any components. Another important element is that it makes the manufacturing process safer for employees, and it achieves that by detecting workplace accidents such as smoke and fire, as well as employee issues and altercations.  
Advanced Bamboo-Fiber Composite
Timber has been considered as a primary construction material for its versatile properties such as high superior strength and durability.  However, it is not as strong as materials such as concrete or steel and takes a long time to grow.  A sustainable alternative to timber is bamboo, a fast-growing plant that is readily available. As a natural composite material, bamboo has a high strength-to-weight ratio that makes it suitable for structural applications in the construction industry. The technology on offer is a patented bamboo-based composite that blends laminated bamboo fibres with a specially formulated bio-compatible binder. The resultant material is strong, environmentally friendly, economically feasible, and durable. In comparison to hardwood and engineered wood products, this bamboo-based composite material is three times stronger and can be used in a variety of applications, especially in buildings to replace beams and columns and for the production of high-performance niche furniture products.
Vat Polymerization 3D Printing Platform For Homogeneous Composite Printing
Vat polymerization (VP) is one of the most common types of 3D printing processes which includes stereolithography, direct light processing, two-photon printing, and other similar techniques. Parts are fabricated layer by layer, and each layer is the cross-section of the parts built by curing liquid polymer with a light source. Particles can also be added to the resin to build composites for additional functions. However, it is difficult to distribute particles uniformly in the final part of the printing process. Existing solutions make use of fine nanoparticles, which greatly increase production costs, lack certain properties of large particles, and have a risk of precipitating during printing. This technology provides a method that is capable of printing resin-particle composites with uniform distribution. A plug-and-play functional module is added to commercial VP 3D printers to keep the resin-particle mixture homogenized during the printing process. This enables the fabrication of complex 3D composite parts with uniform particle distribution while also being easy to operate and integrate into existing VP printers without altering their performance or function.
