6 NTU projects awarded NRF grants
Date:9/2/2009

Six project proposals from the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) have received research funding from the National Research Foundation (NRF), following its second call for proposals under the Proof of Concept (POC) scheme. To date, a total of nine NTU projects are funded under the POC scheme. This reflects the significant role that NTU plays in leading Singapore's drive for research and development (R&D) into new ideas, innovation and entrepreneurship.

The projects are selected based on technical feasibility, novelty, and commercial viability. Each project will receive up to S$250,000 under the POC scheme.

The six winning proposals from NTU were submitted by a Programme Director, four faculty members, as well as a PhD student.

Seamless wireless sensing

The project by Dr Lim Hock Beng, Programme Director of NTU's Intelligent System Centre, is about sensor networks. "Wireless sensor network is a highly promising technology with a rapidly growing market and many important applications," said Dr Lim. "At present, the sensor node platforms from different vendors cannot interoperate easily with each other. My team's project aims to develop the core technology to enable the seamless interoperability and scalability of different sensor node platforms."

"We are thrilled to get this opportunity to pursue our ideas and develop useful technologies to be commercialised," said Dr Lim. "The NRF POC scheme is a novel initiative that helps researchers to translate their ideas into innovative products and applications for the market."
