About RMA

The Robotics & Maker Academy (RMA) is a collaboration between the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) and Singapore Polytechnic (SP). Officially launched in the last quarter of 2014, RMA invites primary and secondary schools with an interest in Robotics and Coding to join its programme.

This programme will introduce students to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) and take them through a knowledge discovery process as they learn to code and programme robots in a guided environment with hands-on activities such as workshops and challenges. Through this process, students will gain the necessary computational thinking skills and basic understanding in coding and robotics – skill sets that are necessary to enable Singapore to gear up as the world’s first Smart Nation. It will also allow students to gain an interest in infocomm technologies and take on professional infocomm careers in future.

The aim of RMA is to develop young Singaporeans to be confident with coding and robotics technology so as to prepare them for an ever-evolving Smart Nation future.

Features:

– Expose Youth to STEM, Robotics and Computational Thinking

– Structured Training and Milestones for Interested Youth

– Interest Youth towards Professional Technical Careers

Project Showcase

The Centre promotes a wide array of Computer Systems and Infocomm Technology projects undertaken by students and staff. Some of the achievements and past projects are shown below.

The project showcases how the Internet of Things (IoT) technologies can be used to transform the life of a modern individual. The IoT Connected Home is a vision where everyday objects and items are interconnected to help manage the busy life of an individual. The modern individual uses many online social media (e.g. Twitter, Facebook) and tools (e.g. calendar and maps) for his daily living. The next logical step is to extend these tools to the home by connecting them to common household items. It provides a glimpse of this exciting future.

Smart eMeter @SP
The aim of this project is to create a smart energy meter (eMeter) that is able collect energy usage using wireless technology. Commercial eMeters are used and we integrate it to our Zigbee wireless interfaces to send the energy data to a backend Cloud system. It allows users to check on daily or total electricity usage whenever and wherever through internet access. Data is sent and received via RESTful web services.

iHospital Projects
Since 2008, our Centre has been actively collaborating with the Khoo Teck Puat (previously Alexandra) Hospital on the use of Wireless Communications and IP Telephony for applications in the hospital. Partners like Cisco and Nexlabs also lent their assistance in the projects. Some of the projects that staff and students worked on include iHospital, iBuzz, Dream Ward, Patient Information System on VoIP and Wireless e-care Monitoring System.
