Pelan tindakan jelas diperlukan industri robotik: MYRAIG

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia mesti mengambil langkah berani dan bersepadu untuk membangunkan dan meningkatkan industri robotik dan automasinya dengan merangka pelan induk jelas yang diselaraskan oleh kerajaan dan industri dengan baik bagi mengelak negara daripada ketinggalan.

Pengerusi Kumpulan Kepentingan Automasi dan Robotik Malaysia (MYRAIG), Profesor Dr Ishkandar Baharin, berkata cabaran utama ialah kurangnya persatuan industri robotik yang kukuh, tidak seperti negara maju yang mempunyai sumber robotik yang kukuh dan berkesan serta otpimum. "Kami kini aktif mengumpul maklum balas daripada pelbagai penggiat industri robotik dan automasi dan pembuat keputusan bagi membantu membangunkan kerangka kerja dan pelan tindakan robotik dan automasi nasional untuk Malaysia. "Eropah, Amerika Syarikat, Korea dan Jepun cemerlang dalam bidang ini memandangkan mereka menyelaraskan usaha kerajaan, industri dan akademik dalam membangunkan industri menerusi pelan induk yang jelas yang dipantau oleh pelabur dan institusi kewangan," katanya dalam ucapan pembukaan pada Persidangan Robotik Asia 2012 di sini, hari ini.

Persidangan sehari itu yang dilancarkan Timbalan Menteri Sains, Teknologi dan Inovasi, Datuk Fadillah Yusof bermatlamat menjadi landasan untuk semua penggiat yang terbabit dalam industri robotik dan automasi di Malaysia bersatu untuk merangka Pelan Tindakan Robotik dan Auromasi Malaysia.

"Menerusi persidangan ini, kumpulan kerja akan dibentuk untuk merancang agenda strategi robotik nasional. Peserta dalam bengkel ini akan membentuk kumpulan teknologi Robotik Malaysia.

"Mereka terdiri daripada profesional teras yang akan diperakui sebagai pemimpin robotik dan automasi yang akan menyumbang kepada pelan tindakan robotik dan automasi pertama Malaysia yang akan menjadi pelan tindakan nasional untuk meneraju inovasi industri menerusi teknologi robotik dan automasi," kata Ishkandar. Beliau berkata, berdasarkan perspektif industri, MYRAIG melihat dari sudut visi produk untuk keperluan aplikasi dan daripada sains asas kepada pencapaian teknologi.

"Kami berminat mewujudkan rangkaian kelompok robotik dan automasi yang membabitkan semua pihak bagi membincangkan agensi nasional dan bagaimana menjajarkan sektor itu dengan program transformasi ekonomi kerajaan," katanya.

MYRAIG, sebuah kumpulan Persatuan Malaysia bagi Kejuruteraan dan Teknologi bergabung dengan Persekutuan Antarabangsa Robotik yang berpangkalan di Jerman dan Persatuan robotik Korea dan Jepun, dengan mensasarkan untuk membantu membangunkan kerangka kerja yang diperlukan bagi meletakkan Malaysia sebagai hab Asia bagi robotik dan automasi.

Robotics Asia 2012 Conference at Technology Park M’sia opens

KUALA LUMPUR: Science, Technology, and Innovation Deputy Minister Datuk Fadillah Yusof officially opened the Robotics Asia 2012 Conference at Technology Park Malaysia yesterday.

The Robotics Asia 2012 Conference aims to be the platform for all players involved in robotics and automation in Malaysia to come together to formulate the first Malaysian Robotics and Automation Roadmap.

The objectives of the one-day conference are to identify sectors which are relevant to robotics and automation in the Malaysian landscape; to brainstorm on robotics and automation application scenarios which can contribute to the identified sectors; to create a robotic products vision to realise the application scenarios; to formulate the Malaysian Robotics Technology Platform (MRTP) and to integrate all views and results to formulate the first Malaysian Robotics and Automation Roadmap.

A working group will be formed to plan the National Strategic Robotics Agenda.

The participants from this workshop will form the Malaysia Robotics Technology Group, which will comprise the core professionals in this field who will contribute to the first Malaysian Robotics and Automation Roadmap.

The roadmap will be the national blueprint to lead to industrial innovation through robotics and automation technology.

International speakers from Japan, Canada, China, Iran and local experts have been invited for discussions about the roadmap.

These include researchers and developers in robotics and automation; academicians involved in robotics and automation; policy-makers and decision-makers from the relevant subjects and robotics and automation industrial professionals.

The Malaysia Robotics and Automation Interest Group (myRAig) was formed on Feb 17, 2010 as an interest group under the Malaysian Society for Engineering & Technology (MySET). It aims to be the professional platform where engineers, technologists and industry players can meet to discuss robotics and automation programmes and policies.

Through this conference, myRAig hopes to produce a roadmap to pave the way for the establishment of the National Strategic Robotics Agenda (NSRA) and the Malaysian Robotics Technology Platform to be the catalysts in accelerating industrial innovations in Malaysian robotics.

Advances in the robotics and automation sector in Malaysia will benefit various sectors and industries including agriculture, defence, internal security, health, education, human resources and the general public.

MySET Set To Pool Local Engineers


KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 23 (Bernama) -- The merger between Malaysian Society for Engineering and Technology and Malaysian Society of Engineering Technologist is set to pool the nation's largest professional groups to help the government take the nation forward.

The new organisation, The Malaysian Society for Engineering and Technology (MySET), would play a role in assisting the public and private sectors transform the country into a high-income nation.

In a statement today, MySET president, Prof Datuk Abang Abdullah Abang Ali, said the initiative would ensure the country has a good supply of practical engineers to help the country move ahead in the competitive global arena.

"This is laudable and can help the country address its needs for trained engineering professionals," he said.

Climate In Malaysia Getting Worse - MSET

 

PUTRAJAYA, April 9 (Bernama) -- At present, Malaysia might be considered a safe country, free from most natural disasters, but that might not be the case for very long.

 

Malaysian Society for Engineering and Technology (mSET) Pesident Prof Datuk Abang Ali said that due to his concern, the NGO would be organized a Regional Symposium on Engineering and Technology 2011 in November in Kuching.

 

"Whether we like it or not, the situation in Malaysia is getting worse. Earlier we used to talk about simple flooding; now it's more serious flooding. Before we talk about light rain, now we have very heavy thunderstorms that are not only capabale of causing floods, but can also result in serious landsilides.

 

"And we are alking about other disasters such as earthquakes. Even if it was an earthquake of low or medium intensity, it could affect us is terms of the structure and integrity of our buildings and the infrastructure of the country because most the buildings n Malaysia are not designed for any type of earthquake," he told reporters after the opening of the National Engineering and Technology Convention 2011 (NETC 2011) here Satuarday.

 

mSET: Govt Should Consult Public And NGOs On Nuclear Energy

 

PUTRAJAYA -- The government should consult the public and professional non-governmental organisations (NGOs) in the country regarding its plan to develop nuclear energy, Malaysian Society for Engineering and Technology (mSET) President Prof Abang Abdullah Abang Ali said today.

He stressed the importance of both the public and NGOs being consulted as the technology would affect them and impact their safety, immediately and in the future.

Is Malaysia in danger

 

EARTHQUAKES appear to be occurring with increasing frequency, and they seem to be coming closer to Malaysia. Are we in any danger? This question was on the minds of many Malaysians, especially after the two earthquakes in Myanmar and Bandung recently.

Just prior to that was the monster quake in Japan last month, which registered 9.0 on the Richter scale, and another last Thursday, registering 7.4.


On April 5 alone, 67 earthquakes were recorded all over the world, from Alaska right across the globe to the Solomon Islands with moderate magnitudes ranging from 2.5 to 6 on the Richter scale.


Experts said seismic activity in the ear th’s crust happened every day in varying degrees of intensity and Malaysia, although not in the Pacific Ring of Fire danger zone, “was not immune to it”.
