A fibre optic coupler is a fiberised component used as an essential building block in a fibre-based optical system such as a fibre laser, fibre resonator, fibre interferometer or fibre communication network. However, a conventional fibre coupler is composed of two solid fibres thermally fused side by side. Hence, its performance is limited by a solid core. The institute has developed a hollow/air core fibre coupler that is based on anti-resonant fibre technology with two air cores in the coupler behaving as an individual anti-resonant fibre core.

Offers
There is soaring interest and investment in unmanned platforms—drones, Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV), Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV), robots, and other mission- and business-critical applications—but challenges remain. These unmanned platforms require live, uninterrupted wireless video streaming with wide bandwidth and low latencies, and dedicated spectrum channels.

Millions of dollars are spent yearly to refrigerate cold drinks, which are eventually consumed at less than ideal temperatures, wasting the energy used to maintain the drink at a reasonably cold temperature. This problem intensifies in tropical countries due to the high demand for chilled drinks throughout the year. This cooling technology's vision is for the drink to be cooled only moments before consumption, thus saving the energy necessary to keep it cold for long periods.

Controlled photocatalytic advanced oxidation process to treat industrial wastewater

Offers
Some industrial wastewaters that are difficult to treat may not be degraded by conventional means, even with a combination of chemical and biological methods. Instead, leading-edge technologies such as advanced oxidation processes (AOP) are required to break down the organic compounds. The Singapore SME has developed a technology that uses UV and reactive chlorine species catalyst to precisely control the oxidation state of the reactant in the water.

Unmanned aerial vehicles for autonomous operations

The global inspection industry is trending towards the unmanned system, for example, Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV), Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) and Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV), which are mostly teleoperated by a human operator. However, a skilled human pilot is an expensive asset and also in limited supply.

Model-predictive control for smart building energy management

Offers
Modern buildings are often equipped with building automation and control (BAC) systems for operational control and monitoring. Conventional BAC systems lack the level of intelligence to coordinate the control of complex building systems to achieve multiple targets (energy efficiency, occupant well-being). Most conventional BAC systems have the core control algorithm in a reactive manner such as on/off control or proportional–integral–derivative (PID) control.

Activated small interfering RNA (siRNA) microneedles for pathological scar treatment

Offers
Currently, there is no definitive and effective treatment for pathological scars (keloids and hypertrophic scars), which is a significant part of the USD 17.94 billion (2018, CAGR of 9.9%) global scar therapy market. Patients inflicted with pathological scars suffer from physical, mental and social comorbidity, and have described themselves as “desperate for any treatment that will actually work”. To address this need, the Singapore institute of higher learning has developed a clinically effective and pain-free treatment of pathological scars using topical siRNA microneedles.

Distributed LiDAR for omnidirectional visibility of drones, vehicles or mobile robots

Technology
TOSG20210127002
Offers
LiDAR is an optical sensor for distance measurement and has become an indispensable sensor in the visual perception system of autonomous mobile robots and driverless ground and aerial vehicles. However, the existing commercial LiDARs have a limited field of view (FoV). This shortcoming makes a single unit of these LiDARs incapable of seeing the entire immediate space around the robot or vehicle. Setup using multiple-LiDARs for complete coverage is costly (even costlier than the vehicle in many cases), and is visually unpleasant.
