Singapore-Vietnam Advancing Sustainability

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

With the aim of fostering faculty and student exchange as well as joint research in sustainable development, climate change, and air traffic management, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) is working with Vietnam’s two top public universities, Vietnam National University, Hanoi (VNU), and Vietnam National University, Ho Chi Minh City (VNU-HCM).

Through exchange programmes, the collaborations will allow academics and students to learn from one another and share and exchange best practises in research areas of shared interest.

At VNU, Professor Lam Khin Yong, Vice President for Industry at NTU, signed two Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) with Professor Le Quan, President of VNU, and Professor Nguyen Minh Tam, Vice Chancellor of VNU-HCM.

Vietnamese Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh and Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, who was in Vietnam on an official visit, both observed the signing ceremony. Chan Chun Sing, the Minister of Education in Singapore, and Nguyen Kim Son, the Minister of Education and Training in Vietnam, were both in attendance.

In accordance with the MoU, NTU and VNU will collaborate on research projects, professor and student exchanges, and other initiatives. Additionally, the complex field of air traffic management will be the focus of several ambitious and strategic initiatives being undertaken by VNU-HCM and NTU’s Air Traffic Management Research Institute (ATMRI). These initiatives will make use of cutting-edge tools and ground-breaking approaches to tackle important problems in this area.

The research of artificial intelligence (AI) applications in air traffic control is one of the collaboration’s most exciting facets. The promise of AI in the aviation industry is no less exciting than that of other sectors where it has already proven to be a disruptive force.

Researchers from both schools will collaborate to optimise air traffic operations using machine learning (ML) and AI technologies. To improve the effectiveness and safety of air travel, intelligent systems that can make choices in real-time are being developed. AI will play a crucial part in revolutionising how air traffic is managed, from route planning and airspace management to forecasting and managing potential disruptions.

Another focus of this partnership’s research is on human-computer interface (HCI) technology. HCI is all about maximising the interaction between people and technology, and it can have a significant effect on how air traffic control is conducted.

The design and deployment of user-friendly interfaces that support smooth communication and decision-making for air traffic controllers and other aviation stakeholders will be the focus of the collaboration. The goal of this project is to develop user-friendly solutions that enable operators to handle complicated situations successfully while giving efficiency and safety-first priority.

Also, the collaboration will investigate numerous computational and optimisation issues with broad implications for air traffic control. The aviation ecosystem’s resource allocation is enhanced using optimisation techniques, which also aim to reduce delays and streamline operations. Advanced mathematical models and optimisation algorithms that can handle the difficulties brought on by the dynamic nature of air traffic will be studied by researchers.

The focus will also be on computational subjects, which include a variety of computational techniques and simulations. These tools will be crucial for simulating and forecasting a variety of situations, including the effects of increasing aviation technology, weather-related delays, and air traffic congestion. Researchers can develop preemptive plans to address prospective problems using computer modelling, which provides them with insightful information about those problems.

Further, this partnership intends to encourage research translation by assisting academic institutions and startup businesses in taking the first steps towards commercialising technologies that will benefit business and society.
