Autonomous and Transportation Systems (ATS) Hub

About the Tech hub 

The Autonomous and Transportation Systems (ATS) Hub is part of the core Technology Hubs under the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. It aims to provide a conducive environment and infrastructure for staff and students to learn and build up capabilities in the areas of Data Science, AI & Computer Vision, Embedded Systems, Programming & Application Development and Rapid Transit Technologies, through applied Research and Development (R&D) work, hands-on activities and projects.

The Autonomous and Transportation Systems (ATS) Hub has a Rail System Simulator that is designed to train and equip students with technical skills and competencies for the relevant functions of the railway operations. The simulator covers various technical operations, maintenance and management of a Rail Transit System, including Train Control, Signal & Communication, Traction Power, and Integrated Control systems.

The Hub also explores emerging technologies to develop an Autonomous Electric Vehicle. These include enabling technologies such as Sensors, Navigation, Control & Drive Systems, Intelligent Communication, Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence, Vision, Cloud, Dashboard Design, and Application Programming.

We are seeking collaborations with industry and academic/research institutes in internship programmes, and industry-related and applied R&D projects to improve our competencies.

The Hub is located at Level 2, T8 and Level 1, T12 @ SP.

Capabilities and Technical Services

Backed by the vast experience of the members, the Autonomous and Transportation Systems Hub provides technical consultations, training, seminars and project collaborations to government agencies, educational institutes, businesses and industry partners in these technology areas:
