Otsaw Launches World’s First UV-C LED Disinfection Autonomous Robot

SINGAPORE, Jun 16, 2020 – (ACN Newswire) – Local robotics manufacturer Otsaw Digital Pte. Ltd. ("Otsaw") is pleased to announce that it has launched the world's first UV-C LED Disinfection Autonomous Robot, named "O-RX". Underscoring Otsaw's strengths in the design and development of autonomous robotics and the integration of innovative UV-C LED technology, Otsaw has filed the relevant patents for this new innovation.



Key industry leaders in talks with CEO Mr Ling Ting Ming on ways OTSAW and the technological/robotics industry tackles COVID-19.
(L to R)
Kurt Wee (ASME President), Koh Choon Hui (Chairman, OTSAW), Ho Sing (CEO,
YTL Starhill Global REIT Management Ltd), and Ling Ting Ming (CEO, OTSAW).



From conceptualisation, design, materials procurement, prototype testing to certification, the development of the O-RX was successfully completed in a short 8 weeks. As a testament to its high safety standards and product quality, the O-RX has undergone the relevant safety and testing under various conditions and it has been certified by internationally-accredited TUV SUD.

Eliminating the use of mercury lamps that emits harmful UV-A and UV-B radiations, the O-RX utilises the UV-C LED technology that emits only UV-C light, which is extremely effective when it comes to killing microbes, including harmful bacteria and coronaviruses such as COVID-19. Hence, the UV-C LED technology is much safer and non-cancerous to human skin.

Integrated with the innovative UV-C LED technology, the O-RX has a disinfection rate of more than 99.999% with a range of 2.5 meters and the UV-C LED technology is also more energy efficient than conventional mercury lamps by 70%.

Capable to be deployed for 5 hours on one full charge, the O-RX is also equipped with a 360-degree camera and lidar sensors with self-driving, collision avoidance and artificial intelligence technologies. The O-RX can be controlled and managed remotely via a fleet management control platform that is developed by Otsaw.

To help remove heat generated by the LED, the robot uses a thermal management solution developed by researchers at the Agency for Science, Technology and Research's (A*STAR) Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology (SIMTech).

Otsaw will be collaborating with YTL Starhill Global REIT Management Limited, the manager of Starhill Global REIT, and will be running a trial of the O-RX at Wisma Atria commencing from 15 July 2020.

Otsaw's founder and CEO, Mr Ling Ting Ming, commented, "Disinfection is a key part of protecting the health and safety of communities and more than ever, we need to accelerate the rate of automating disinfection as COVID-19 outbreak increased the demand and frequencies of disinfection but at the same time, manpower resources have been curtailed.

"O-RX combines innovative LED technology and robotics to allow the disinfecting process to be fully autonomous, mobile and much safer, thereby achieving a higher disinfection efficiency as compared to conventional methods and reduce the dependence of human resources."

Vingroup’s Successful Research on Facial Recognition Technology That Can Identify People in Masks

HANOI, VIETNAM, Apr 20, 2020 – (ACN Newswire) – On April 20, 2020, VinAI Research, a Vingroup-funded research laboratory, announced its results of a successful study on facial recognition technology that can identify people wearing face protective masks with stable accuracy. VinAI Research has become one of the first units in the world to successfully study this technology. VinAI is willing to provide the recognition technology to the community for free to contribute to the prevention of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

VinAI's system uses a new and unique deep learning model developed by experts of the Institute for research and application of optimisation (VinOptima), to study a method with stable accuracy to identify people who may have their faces covered.

This deep learning model designed to reproduce activities of neural networks in the human brain, allows training and automatically extracting valuable information of part of the face to address the recognition problem when people use masks.

The study shows that The VinAI's system has significantly better accuracy than the current technology when identify people wearing face masks. Advantage of VinAI's recognition technology is a different algorithm and application of identification technology.

VinAI's recognition system only uses information from normal camera sensors while other recognition technologies use infrared and depth sensors. Therefore, the cost of VinAI's products will not be high and can be easily integrated into existing camera systems. The products will be widely applied into the employee time tracking and authentication systems of businesses.

"Masks are essential item in the COVID-19 prevention rules, but when users wear masks, the accuracy of current facial recognition technology can be reduced by more than 50 per cent. Therefore, VinAI has urgently developed this technology to promptly meet social needs." – Dr. Bui Hai Hung (Director of VinAI Research) said.

VinAI has also found a solution to automatically monitor users wearing masks on cameras. This solution can actively support the management of spacing among people in organisations and companies when they return to work after the pandemic.

VinAI Research is cooperating with VinSmart electronic equipment manufacturing company to install the new technology on Vsmart phones, allowing users conveniently unlock phone by facial recognition.

The applications on Vsmart also makes VinAI become one of the first units in the world to apply identification technology without removing face masks on commercial products.

Besides the commercialisation, VinAI is ready to provide this latest technology to partners for the purpose of serving public health during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The achievement not only has practical significance on a global scale, but also affirms Vingroup's transformation into a leading technology corporation in Vietnam which has step-by-step adapted to advanced global and complex technologies.

References:
VinAI Research was established on April 17, 2019. In just one year, the institute has made two AI technology researches that were announced at the world's leading conference on AI in Canada, that made Vietnam only the second country in the region to have projects published at this conference.

The world's recognition technologies: The system of facial recognition is an app that can identify people from their photos or videos like FaceID from Apple, DeepFace from Facebook, Rekognition from Amazon. These technologies currently do not solve the problem of identifying people in masks.

Japan’s Leading Team Collaboration Platform Company, Cybozu Announces Asia Business Strategy

TOKYO, Mar 31, 2020 – (ACN Newswire) – Cybozu, Inc. (Head Office: Chuo-ku, Tokyo; CEO: Yoshihisa Aono; hereinafter "Cybozu") held a presentation on February 25, 2020, to announce its financial results for the previous fiscal year, as well as its business strategy for the current fiscal year highlighting its steady business performance and its future strategy for strengthening the sales system for kintone – Cybozu's flagship product – in the Asia Pacific region.

In January 2020, a new Business Strategy Office was established to strengthen the global deployment of Cybozu's sales expansion. In particular, kintone – a cloud-based app for work improvement – is seeing steady sales in the Asia Pacific region, where it is used as a platform by companies implementing the latest work styles. Going forward, Cybozu intends to continue to focus resources on this flagship product.

Strengthening activities with a view to establish a sales system in Cambodia within 2020:

To date, sales have started in major cities located in eight countries in Southeast Asia (Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Philippines, Myanmar, and Laos). Cambodia will be the ninth country where partners are located. In addition, there is also a study underway to examine the establishment of local subsidiaries in these nine countries. Cybozu will strengthen activities aimed at establishing a globally common sales system and business model within three years.

Focusing on human resource development:

In order to strengthen activities in the Asia Pacific region, Cybozu will also actively recruit students from the Asia Pacific region and focus on developing human resources that may play active roles in their home countries in the future.

Comments from CEO Yoshihisa Aono:

"With 'creating a society brimming with teamwork' as our vision, Cybozu offers tools globally for creating information-sharing platforms for all kinds of teams. As the improvement of productivity and work efficiency is pursued everywhere, we strongly feel the need for tools that can achieve these goals in the rapidly growing Asia Pacific region. Cybozu, in particular, is well-versed in the software as a service (SaaS) business that utilizes cloud-based technology and has become the standard in recent years. We believe that we can lead the market in this business.

Looking at the future, cloud tools capable of communication regardless of location will become essential during emergencies such as a pandemic. In Japan, there are already cases of cloud tools being used as a platform for virtual offices.

Japan’s Leading Team Collaboration Platform Company, Cybozu Announces Asia Business Strategy

TOKYO, Mar 24, 2020 – (ACN Newswire) – Cybozu, Inc. (Head Office: Chuo-ku, Tokyo; CEO: Yoshihisa Aono; hereinafter "Cybozu") held a presentation on February 25, 2020, to announce its financial results for the previous fiscal year, as well as its business strategy for the current fiscal year highlighting its steady business performance and its future strategy for strengthening the sales system for kintone – Cybozu's flagship product – in the Asia Pacific region.

In January 2020, a new Business Strategy Office was established to strengthen the global deployment of Cybozu's sales expansion. In particular, kintone – a cloud-based app for work improvement – is seeing steady sales in the Asia Pacific region, where it is used as a platform by companies implementing the latest work styles. Going forward, Cybozu intends to continue to focus resources on this flagship product.

Strengthening activities with a view to establish a sales system in Cambodia within 2020:

To date, sales have started in major cities located in eight countries in Southeast Asia (Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Philippines, Myanmar, and Laos). Cambodia will be the ninth country where partners are located. In addition, there is also a study underway to examine the establishment of local subsidiaries in these nine countries. Cybozu will strengthen activities aimed at establishing a globally common sales system and business model within three years.

Focusing on human resource development:

In order to strengthen activities in the Asia Pacific region, Cybozu will also actively recruit students from the Asia Pacific region and focus on developing human resources that may play active roles in their home countries in the future.

Comments from CEO Yoshihisa Aono:

"With 'creating a society brimming with teamwork' as our vision, Cybozu offers tools globally for creating information-sharing platforms for all kinds of teams. As the improvement of productivity and work efficiency is pursued everywhere, we strongly feel the need for tools that can achieve these goals in the rapidly growing Asia Pacific region. Cybozu, in particular, is well-versed in the software as a service (SaaS) business that utilizes cloud-based technology and has become the standard in recent years. We believe that we can lead the market in this business.

Looking at the future, cloud tools capable of communication regardless of location will become essential during emergencies such as a pandemic. In Japan, there are already cases of cloud tools being used as a platform for virtual offices. Going forward, we intend to take advantage of our knowledge to reach the global market and to further strengthen activities to improve work efficiency and teamwork with companies seeking new working styles or preparing for emergencies."
