With innovation in mind, Hong Yi’s project outshined other competitors by demonstrating how IR4.0 technologies are able to address real-life modern-day issues. Mentored by our colleague Ir. Ts. Dr. Alvin Yap Chee Wei from the School of Engineering, Hong Yi’s award-winning project comprised the development of Robotic Musical Instruments (RMI) to automate the playing of real-life instruments based on composed music pieces using AUTOMUSE, MICOM and IoT Dashboard. The overall aim of this project was to create a central control system (CCS) to manipulate mechanised musical instruments controlled and monitored by an IoT (Internet Of Things) platform.
Impressively, Chong Hong Yi has also been active in numerous competitions with the recent being crowned with the “Best Innovation Award” team winner at the recently concluded Innoserve Awards 2020 team challenge led by Dr. Freddy Tan Kheng Suan.
This is a perfect example of how hard work, perseverance and large doses of innovative thinking truly pay off when it comes to achieving success. We convey our warmest congratulations to Chan Hong Yi on his well-deserved achievements and Bravo to Ir. Ts. Dr. Alvin Yap Chee Wei for nurturing outstanding talents in APU.
