December 12, 2018 Shanghai
The University of Michigan-Shanghai Jiao Tong University Joint Institute Winter Design Expo was hosted on December 12, 2018, and featured 46 innovation projects. These projects incorporate advanced technologies, such as smart manufacturing, to solve real problems that companies will meet, and provide the innovative solutions for them. In the Expo, two cooperative research projects that were showcased with the joint effort of Comau and students from the Joint Institute attracted great attention.
The two cooperative projects consisted of Augmented Reality (AR) applications for an industrial assembly manual operation station, and an intelligent glove tracking system. The two projects provided applicable system solutions for the problems that Comau faces in production and manufacturing. Even though these two projects are challenging and limited-time, a satisfactory result has been achieved with the joint efforts of Comau and the students. Through these customized innovative projects, the students at the Joint Institute have accomplished an outstanding learning experience, and expanded their knowledge in the innovation sector. They have also played an important role in the innovative ideas and new technologies that Comau is exploring.
This Winter Expo explores new cooperation patterns for companies and universities, developing the revolutionary road that adopts advanced technologies into production and manufacturing. The Expo not only encourages students to apply their knowledge in multidisciplinary projects and experience a project development environment, but additionally provides a valuable opportunity for Comau to visit Shanghai Jiao Tong University in an effort to broaden our university relations. In the future, Comau will continue to cooperate with universities in research projects, talent acquisition and career guidance to help promote STEM-related careers in science, technology, engineering, and manufacturing.
