Industrial Revolution (IR 4.0) in Malaysia
Are We Ready For Its?
Industrial revolution 4.0 (IR 4.0) is the advent of ‘Cyber-Physical Systems ‘involving entirely new capabilities for people and machines
It represents entirely new ways technology becomes embedded within societies and even our human bodies.
But the industrial revolution is not a new thing in the world. the evolution started in the late 1700 and early 1800.
Definition of Industrial Revolution (IR) from IR 1.0 to IR 4.0 evolution.
Start late of 1700
The industrial revolution begins. Mechanization of manufacturing with the introduction of steam and water power.
The early part of the 20th century
Mass production assembly lines using electrical power
Starting in the late 1950
Automated production using electronics, programmable logic controllers (PLC), IT systems, and Robotics.
Impromptu the past few decades
Autonomous Decision making of cyber-physical systems using machine learning through cloud technology.
Industrial Revolution (IR 4.0) in Malaysia.
In Malaysia itself, IR 4.0 has been slowly embraced and been implement. There are a few elements of IR4.0 concepts that have been used here such as Enterprise Resources Planning (ERP Systems), Internet of Thing (IoT), Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT), Big Data, Artificial Intelligent (AI), Machine To Machine (M2M), Digitalization, Smart Factory, Machines Learning, Cloud Computing, Real-Time Data Processing, and Cyber-Physical Systems.
Example of IR 4.0 in Malaysia
1.MyERP Software system that
MyERP Software system that been developed by a Malaysian company (Sigma Rectrix Systems (M)) to help SME companies in Malaysia to manage their business
2. The MSF 4.0 (Malaysia Smart Factory)
The MSF 4.0 (Malaysia Smart Factory) is an emerging technology center under SHRDC that provides competency-based smart factory training programs in the areas of industrial and Data Automation, Data Analytics, and Artificial Intelligence.
3. Robot Makcik Kiah 19
University Technology Malaysia (UTM), Hospital Canselor Tuanku Muhriz UKM (HCTM), and DF Automation & Robotics Sdn Bhd (DF) have joined together in a significant collaboration to develop a Hospital Delivery Robot System. The robot, named MCK19 or Makcik Kiah 19, is the First Malaysian Made Delivery Robot for hospitals to assist healthcare frontlines in assisting the delivery of healthcare to patients with COVID-19.
4. MAI Technology Intelligent Systems (MITS)
The Malaysia Automotive Institute (MAI) has launched its advanced technology center called the MAI Intelligent Technology Systems (MITS).
5. Aerodyne drone Malaysia
Aerodyne started assisting the Malaysian authorities in the enforcement of the Movement Control Order (MCO), and the team achieved the milestone of completing over 1,000 hours of drone flight time. A GIS-data sharing and analytics platform, allowed the team to view Covid-19 infection locational data and stream real-time video on a visual dashboard making it an effective approach.
Above are just a few examples of how IR 4.0 has been implemented in Malaysia. We hope there will be more soon and in the future in order to improve our technology in Malaysia.
