Sypron’s slogan is: Dream, Think, and Invent. These three verbs are the core of what the Advanced Development team does every day. Engineers in this division are problem solvers, constantly challenging themselves to explore new problems and technologies, match both of them to come up with the best solution to each problem.
Our mission is to push the limits of what has been done already and explore creative ways of utilizing existing and new emerging technologies for problem solving.
In the Advanced Development Division, we undertake advanced research and development activities on emerging technologies that drive a new wave of innovation and products while adding competitive features to our existing products. Some of the technologies our engineers explore in their work are listed below.
The global market for smart machines was valued at $5.3 billion in 2013. This market is expected to increase to over $15.3 billion in 2019 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 19.7% for the five-year period 2014 to 2019.
We develop intelligent algorithms to endow our products with different intelligent capabilities such as the ability to selectively collect data based on a certain context of interest, the ability to fuse data from different multi-modal sources including soft and hard sensors and the ability to process and analyze the collected and fused data in order to get in-depth insights about current status of machine/system, predict likelihood of failure/malfunctioning and recommend proactive actions.
Cognitive Internet of Things (IoT)
Internet of Things (IoT) brings physical and digital worlds together and replaces the ownership paradigm with remote access. IDC Research forecasts that there 7.1 trillion dollars of value will be generated from IoT and 40 billion connected devices by 2020. Cognitive Internet of Things (IoT) technology is empowered with high level capabilities such as learning, thinking, and understanding the physical world.
Cloud robotics is a technology enabler for sharing data and processing resources provided by spatially distributed, connected robotic systems in order to enhance and enlarge the power and the utility of robotics systems. Using the cloud, a robot can improve different capabilities such as machine vision, speech recognition, language translation, motion planning, 3D mapping and learning.
Smart Factory and Industry 4.0
The fourth industrial revolution Industry 4.0 represents a new paradigm shift from “centralized” to “decentralized” industry relies on cyber-physical based automation where sensors send data directly to the cloud and services such as monitoring, control and optimization automatically subscribe to necessary data in real-time. In the coming years, these technologies will be seen as a viable alternative to current manufacturing processes.
According to a recent report by Markets and Markets, smart factory technology will have global market size of 74.80 Billion USD by 2022.
Active Research Projects
Engineers at Sypron’s Advanced Development division are working on a number of international and national research projects. The team takes part in some active research groups. Below are some of the currently active projects.
The objective of this project is to develop a predictive maintenance system for remote condition monitoring of critical equipment in order to mitigate any possible risk, avoid downtime and avoid emergency replace-on-failure decisions.
Our team is actively involved in an international group of researchers from 11 countries around the world to extend the Core Ontology for Robotics and Automation (CORA) in order to represent more specific concepts and axioms that are commonly used in the Autonomous Robotics.
Sypron Solutions collaborates with IEEE SIGHT as a partner in different areas of interest related to humanitarian technology development/deployment, community benefits or sustainable development in developing countries.
Sypron Solutions serves as an industry sponsor for IEEE RAS Egypt Chapter. We support the different activities organized by the chapter in order to disseminate the robotics and automation knowledge to students, researchers and engineers and promote the applicability of robotics and automation to pertinent areas of industrial and commercial importance.
