Malaysia’s first ever robotics centre of excellence to set up in excellence

According to recent report, the Advanced Technologies Innovative Alliance Sdn Bhd (ATIA) will be collaborating with three local companies to set up the first Centre of Excellence For Robotics in Malaysia, which will be based in Cyberjaya.

Formalising the initiative, the ATIA entered into three memorandum of understanding, namely with the Malaysian Technology Development Corporation (MTDC), Malaysia Robotics and Automation Society (MyRAS) and Malaysia Automotive, Robotics and IoT Institute (MARii) at a ceremony in the country recently.

Speaking to reporters after witnessing the MoU, the Minister of Selangor stated that the centre would be a platform to develop effective technology infrastructure to improve the quality life of people in line with the state government’s ‘smart state’ agenda by 2025.

The centre, which will operate from Malaysian Communication and Multimedia Malaysia’s (MCMC) Tower 2, will also promote the government’s economic growth through clusterisation and development clusters through the High-Tech Industry and Science Park Cluster in Shah Alam, Subang Jaya, Puchong and Cyberjaya.

In addition, the Minister noted that Selangor had also allocated RM1.5 million for the advancement of Gigabit speed Internet network (one gigabit per second) and a data centre which would address top priority challenges, stimulate investments, enhance efficiency and create next generation jobs to fuel sustainable growth.

The chairman of the group said that it would serve as a facilitator to local IT companies and robotic experts from Bucheon, South Korea to develop a platform to promote collaboration and strengthen linkages between technology institutes in the field of information and communications technology (ICT) and robotics.

He noted that this Centre of Excellence will not merely produce robots but will also strive to produce highly-skilled engineers who will pave way to the future of technology industry.

It was also noted that the strategic alliance agreement with the three companies was complemented by a dialogue session, business matching sessions and discussions among six Korean companies.

As a future plan, it was noted that by 2019, the group would bring in more than 150 Korean information and communications technology companies to start business matching.
