SINGAPORE, June 16 — Singapore's Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and Delta Electronics established a joint laboratory to develop smart technologies that will enhance everyday lives, enable better learning and advance manufacturing processes, announced NTU on Thursday.

The Delta-NTU Corporate Laboratory for Cyber-Physical Systems was officially launched by Singapore's Deputy Prime Minister and Coordinating Minister for Economic and Social Policies Tharman Shanmugaratnam on Thursday.

The joint lab will work on developing cyber-physical systems, ranging from large infrastructure systems such as water and power distribution to emerging consumer systems such as the Internet-of- Things, an ever-growing network of physical objects and systems connected to the Internet.

Together with scientists from both Delta Research Center and NTU, the new lab will develop innovations in four key research areas in cyber-physical systems, namely, smart manufacturing, smart learning, smart living, and smart commercialization.

The lab will have more than 80 researchers and staff, including NTU Ph.D. students at its full capacity, added NTU.

The new lab is supported by Singapore's National Research Foundation under its Corporate Laboratory@University Scheme, which funds key corporate laboratories set up through public-private partnerships.

According to the press release, the new lab is Delta's third laboratory in Singapore, and this is NTU's fourth Corporate Laboratory, with three labs already set up with leading industry partners Rolls Royce, ST Engineering and Singapore's Mass Rapid Transit operator SMRT. (PNA/Xinhua)
