Congratulations to Changi General Hospital and KONE for the successful integration of robots with a next generation lift in the building at one of the testbed sites at Heartbeat @ Bedok! HOPE Technik is honored to be a part of the event as the co-convener contributing to the TR93 standard.
As quoted from the Speech by Deputy Prime Minister and Coordinating Minister for Economic Policies Heng Swee Keat at “Vibrant Partnerships Enabling Robotics In How We Live, Work & Play” on 28 May 2022, “To guide robot manufacturers and building owners in deploying multiple robots in smart buildings, the Technical Reference 93, or TR93, was commissioned by the National Robotics Programme. Under the auspice of the Singapore Standards Council overseen by Enterprise Singapore, a multi-stakeholder working group was co-convened by CGH and HOPE Technik to develop a new standard for architecture and harmonized data exchanges between robots, lifts, and automated doorways. These standards allow for the safe, efficient, and integrated deployment of robots in our buildings.”
As more menial tasks are expected to be replaced by robots in future, it is indeed important to “create a safe and efficient working environment where industrial robots work alongside workers, and move around in their midst. This requires many stakeholders, across different industries, to work together to address this common challenge.”
HOPE Technik is a proud partner in the consortium of companies, alongside CHART at Changi General Hospital, Ministry of Health (Singapore), Open Source Robotics and the National Robotics Programme in developing the world’s first Robotic Middleware for Healthcare (RoMi-H).
