SHAH ALAM, Sept 10 — H Drones & Robotics Sdn Bhd, a local drone and robotics engineering service company is using the Selangor Aviation Show (SAS) 2022 as a medium to introduce their locally developed technology.
Its unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) or drone chief operator Muslihuddin Rosman said they had showcased three types of technology at the exhibition, namely the unmanned ground vehicle (UGV), remotely operated underwater vehicle (ROV) and UAV.
“Our company has mastered engineering technology on air, land and water. We showcased these three technologies so that visitors know that this company also produces its own drones and robots in line with Industrial Revolution 4.0 (IR4.0).
“Most visitors who stopped by our booth were surprised to know about the ROV that checks the water condition at the sea. Several visitors have also shown their interest in our UGV,” he told SelangorKini yesterday.
The engineering company is among 63 exhibitors who participated in the exhibition organized by Invest Selangor Berhad (Invest Selangor) for three days from September 8 to 10 at the SkyPark Regional Aviation Center (SkyPark RAC) near here.
Muslihuddin, 28, said the company, which was established a year ago and based in Cyberjaya, intends to form collaborations with several public transport operators as well as ports authority in the country.
“There are plans for several joint venture projects between Prasarana Malaysia Berhad (Prasarana) and Penang Port Sdn Bhd (PPSB), who have expressed their interest to use the UGV and ROV services produced by us,” he said.
Meanwhile, another exhibitor, Global Turbine Asia Sdn Bhd has displayed a replica of the Arrius 1A military helicopter engine for visitors to see during the exhibition.
Its Corporate Communications officer Aida Fakhrul Lamakasauk said its visitors including institution of higher learning (IPT) students were briefed on the maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) of several police and military helicopter engines by the company.
“Tomorrow (today) is the last day of SAS 2022, so we expect many IPT students majoring in engineering and aviation will stop by our booth. We will focus on giving them information related to helicopter engine maintenance.
“This kind of exposure is very important for master’s degree and doctor of philosophy students who need to write academic research theses related to this field,” she said.
The state government through Invest Selangor Berhad (Invest Selangor) started organising SAS last year to provide networking opportunities for industry players and expose the public to the aviation sector.
The second edition of SAS 2022 takes place from Thursday until today with 63 exhibitors such as Dassault Aviation, Systematic Aviation Services Sdn Bhd and Superb Access Solutions Sdn Bhd.
The exhibitors came from Singapore, Brazil, France, the US, Switzerland, Nigeria, the Czech Republic, the United Kingdom and Malaysia.
