NANYANG Technological University (NTU) and Delta Electronics have established a S$45 million joint laboratory to develop smart technologies to be used at homes, learning institutions and manufacturing facilities.
The Delta-NTU Corporate Laboratory for Cyber-Physical Systems, launched on Thursday, will focus on "cyber-physical systems", ranging from large infrastructure systems such as water and power distribution to emerging consumer systems such as the Internet of Things.
At its full capacity, the lab will have more than 80 researchers and staff, including NTU PhD students.
The new joint lab is supported by the National Research Foundation under its Corporate Laboratory@University Scheme, which funds key corporate laboratories set up through public-private partnerships.
Delta is NTU's fourth partner under the scheme, after Rolls-Royce, ST Engineering and SMRT.
