NTU EEE Professor Er Meng Joo conferred the Amity Researcher Award

NTU EEE Professor Er Meng Joo was conferred the “Amity Researcher Award” in the field of Robotics and Automation on 12 January 2018. He also delivered a keynote speech on Cognitive Robotics while receiving his award at the IEEE sponsored 8th International Conference on “Cloud Computing, Data Science & Engineering” Confluence-2018. The conference was organised by India’s Amity School of Engineering and Technology, Amity University.

Prof Er earned the award due to his outstanding contributions and achievements in the field of robotics and automation, intelligent control theory and applications, fuzzy logic and neural networks, cognitive systems, sensor networks and biomedical engineering.

We find out more from Prof Er about his thoughts on winning the award and of his latest research works:

Professor Wang Peng 

Tell us more about your award. 
It is my great honour to be conferred the Amity Researcher Award. I am the first and only winner from Singapore this year.

This is an international recognition of my research works carried over more than two decades. I am indeed humbled by this prestigious award. I would like to share the award with all professors, researchers, students and visitors who have collaborated and worked with me over the years.​

I would like to thank NTU for providing me excellent facilities and a conducive environment for conducting research. I would also like to thank my family for their unconditional love and support over the years without which I would not have achieved this much.

Amity University, India’s Number 1 ranked non-profit private university, is a flagship institution of Amity, India’s leading global education group.

Today, the group has grown 25 campuses and includes universities, schools and pre-schools as well as 10 international campuses across London, Singapore, Dubai, New York, Mauritius, China, Abu Dhabi, South Africa and Romania.

What EEE-related/Robotics & Automation projects are you currently involved in?

Currently, I am the principal investigator (PI) of the MOE Tier 2 project entitled “Online Modelling, Control and Performance Optimisation of Cyber-Physical Systems”. I understand that it is the only project from NTU EEE to be awarded the MOE Tier 2 competitive grant for the grant call in February 2017. I have also been working on Cognitive Robotics where robots are empowered with the human cognition process so that they can learn and reason about how to behave in response to complex goals in a complex world.
