Supercapacitor is an energy storage device like a battery but with much higher power density. It can replace batteries for use as an energy buffer for smoothing discontinuous energy generation from wearable devices using human motion. 

Existing supercapacitors sold in the market are rigid and prone to mechanical breakage or failures when subjected to practical wearable applications. Hence, the team have scaled up a self-healing flexible carbon nanotubes based supercapacitor and integrated it with a knee brace to harvest energy from human motion.

The end product liberates the user from recharging batteries, making self-powered wearable devices feasible in the near future.

This project was to develop a prototype notification system that can monitor and provide information on whether the restrooms in SATS Changi Airport lounges are vacant or occupied.

The system will enable passengers to be notified at the comfort of the lounge seating area instead of requiring them to travel a distance just to find out if the restrooms are available.

For this proof of concept FYP, the team focused on developing sensors and signage to signal to customers the availability of the restroom. The objective of the project is to produce solutions that is cost effective while enhancing customer experience.

Service Robots at Changi Airport

Partner Organisation:

Changi Airport Group (CAG) 

This project is a study of how passengers respond to service robots, with the aim of determining how service robots can be utilised to deliver customer service to passengers at Changi Airport. 

In order to conduct the study, the team had to program the service robot to engage passengers under remote control and autonomous modes.

With that, the team were able to programme the service robot to function under remote control and autonomous modes to delight passengers and provided basic service recovery.
