Dean’s Foreword
The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering has established 7 Center of Excellence since
2008. All of these CoEs namely CADEM, CAMAR, AERC, ARTeC, AMTEx, FTTC and HuRoBs
have been highly active either in Research or Competitive events such as Perodua EcoChallenge, Shell Eco-Marathon, MuRoC, Robocon, to name a few. Through this CoEs the
faculty has achieved outstanding awards and also became champions in specific
categories. Staff of the CoEs has also won a number of Gold Medals during the National
and International Exhibitions. The most prestigious awards that the faculty has
achieved is during the exhibition in British Invention Show 2010 where the staff was
awarded Diamond Best Innovation Award and the Best Innovation Award from
Moscow International Salon of Inventions and Innovation Technologies Archimedes.
This book that published all the CoEs mentioned is for intended reviews by external
organizations with possible collaborations with National and International
Organisations. All this CoEs will be headed by IMeTA head that overseas all the
activities conducted and planned in the near future. We do hope that interested parties
are welcome to discuss future collaborations and consultancy needed.
This book also provide detail information on researchers and their respective field of
expertise from the CoEs. It also includes their contact information such as the e-mail
addresses and telephone numbers. We hope that this directory will be of highly
beneficial information in identifying key researchers with expertise pertinent to the
industries and other institution of higher learning’s need in pursuing and enhancing
research collaboration and consultancy efforts.

Deputy Dean’s Foreword
This book was specifically put together to introduce and promote the Institution of
Mechanical Engineering and Technology Advances (i-META) of the Faculty of
Mechanical Engineering, UiTM. i-META was initially established to consolidate seven
(7) Centers of Excellence (CoE’s) namely AERC, AMTEx, ARTeC, CADEM, CAMAR, FTTC,
and HuRoBs. This move is to strategically maximize the utilization of resources in line
with the aspiration of the Vice Chancellor, Dato’ Prof. Ir. Dr. Sahul Hamid Abu Bakar. In
i-META, you will find descriptions of each CoE in several key aspects such as vision,
mission, logo, activities, related research projects, and publications. Photo Gallery is
also included to signify some of the important achievements of CoE’s.
i-META is yet another piece in the series of publications initiated by the Research and
Industrial Networking division. A list of other complimentary publications is made
available at the end of this book. To all our stakeholders, especially to our partners in
Industry and Academia, we hope that you will find these series useful. We welcome
your feedback and interests in our faculty.
Please contact us for potential
collaborations in any venues possible.
The completion of i-META would not be possible without the strong dedication of the
committee members, the cooperation of all Heads of CoE’s, and the support of the
Dean, Prof. Ir. Dr. Ahmed Jaffar. i-META symbolizes Diversity in Unity and Esprit De
Corps of the staff from all levels. Thank you so much to everyone.
Well Done!

Introduction
The Alternative Energy Research Centre of Mara University of Technology was
founded on 1 January 2008. Alternative energy refers to any source of usable
energy intended to replace the existing fossil fuel. Fossil fuel resulted undesired
consequences such as high carbon dioxide emissions and the major contributing
factor of global warming.
Great focus on alternative energy is due to its role as a means of fueling the
country economy instead of to much dependence on fossil fuel. Oil crisis that is
raging overseas, our country and home drives us to look at locally abundantly
available sources of energy such as river water, solar, biodiesel and may be
ethanol. With the potential depletion of oil resources becoming a reality it is really
important to look at those unlimited natural energy option.
The centre aspires to become the renowned centre for renewable energy
research and technologies for the benefit of our nation and also prepare our
graduates for the emerging markets under these new alternative energy
applications.

Introduction
Manufacturing is one of the contributing factors in Malaysia for achieving a
sustainable economic growth. About two decades back, Malaysia‟s
manufacturing sector for the first time exceeded the agriculture sector in terms of
contribution to the nation‟s Gross Domestic Products (GDP). Today, the
manufacturing sector contributes about 35% of the nation‟s GDP and contributed
about 30% of the workforce. Currently, Malaysia is facing a new era – the era of
advance technology for the manufacturing sector.
In order to be successful in a very competitive global market and to become a
fully developed nation, Malaysia must prepare its workforce for the future in a
very strategic manner. Technologies are changing and manifesting in a very
rapid manner and the market is no longer constrained to a limited national
boundary. To compete and being a successful global player in a turbulent and
unpredictable millennium, Malaysians must be more efficient, knowledgeable,
innovative, creative and adaptable to changing technology. One of the
approaches to achieve that objective is through education, continuous
education and training for its people. Centre of Excellence can become a place
where the staff and students are trained and prepared for new challenges and
where new researches will be initiated.
FME is planning to develop a new Centre of Excellence which focuses on
advanced manufacturing process and technology. The centre will be named as
“Advanced Manufacturing Technology Excellence Centre” or AMTEx for short.
The need for developing a Centre of Excellence in this field has been recognized
by other local universities years ago.


HuRoBs Chart
The HuRoBs will be within the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering. The head
will be responsible for the strategy, direction and conduct of the center.
He is also responsible for planning, coordinating, and operational activities
of the center. The head of the HuRoBs will report directly to the Dean of
the faculty.
Under the head, there are two posts:



Coordinator for Hardware section.
Coordinator for Software and Control System section.

All coordinators are responsible for planning and execution of research and
development in their associated sections.

Under coordinator for hardware section, there are three divisions to
accomplish humanoid body that comprises of arm, upper body and lower
body. Each divisions leads by a unit leader.

A secretary is attached to the center for dealing with secretarial matter
related with research activities and the operation of RSM.

Focus area

The center focuses on activities to enhance fundamental
knowledge to the project members through group study and
lectures, involvement in seminar and conferences, and exchange
learning program with collaborative institutions and industries.

Initiate the design of humanoid robot with consideration of safety,
reliability, cost effectiveness, and commercial viability.

Fabrication and assembly of the robot hardware parts. The robot
body is categorized in three divisions: Arm and fingers (includes biosensors), upper body and lower body. The fabrication processes will
be conduct in parallel for these three sections.

Development of software facilities for control system of the
humanoid robot and sensors.

Conduct simulation and reliability experiments to verify safety and
effectiveness of the robot to interact and work in real environment.



Promote RSM to universities, industries and institutions through
exhibitions, seminars and media to register and involve in activities
organized by the society.
Provide consultancy and disseminate latest information related to
robotic technology through monthly magazine and web-portal to
benefit all society members.
Organized national and international link-up through conferences,
journals publication and exhibition.

Activities
Current and Past Researches in robotic
Research in robotics and bio-sensing engineering has been going on in the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, UiTM, Shah Alam. Some researches are conducted in the framework of STG/IRDC, E-Science and FRGS grants acquired
from the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation; others are as Master
Degree researches, or both. These will become the basis for a more focus and
advanced research in robotics and bio-sensing engineering.
