    The innovative Smart Electrical Outlet/Socket (SEOS) technology developed at National University of Singapore (NUS) under the SinBerBEST programme by Associate Professor Sanjib Kumar Panda's team was featured by NUS Faculty of Engineering in the article "Smart sockets for a smarter nation". Congratulations to the team for their commercialization efforts to produce real-world impact from SinBerBEST research. Complete article can be accessed here

  • Using polymer octet lattice to reinforce the pliability of concrete

    Berkeley Engineering: Researchers Create Tougher, Environmentally-friendly Concrete

    In October 2020, Berkeley Engineering featured a civil and mechanical engineering ingenuity, a stronger concrete with less carbon emission, that was created by SinBerBEST Theme C researchers including Claudia Ostertag, Hayden Taylor, Brian Salazar, Parham Aghdasi, and Ian Williams. The research team utilized a 3D printer to create polymer-based octet lattices, and then poured ultra-high performance concrete, which is four times sturdier than traditional concrete in compaction, into the lattices.

  • Patent for Antenna-embedded Concrete Granted

    Patent for Antenna-embedded Concrete Granted

    SinBerBEST Principal Investigators and Postdoctoral Scholars have been granted a patent for creating a process for forming an antenna structure and for embedding an antenna system in concrete. In 2016, Prof. Boon Hee Soong, Prof. Paulo Monteiro, Dr. Vanessa Reinheimer, and Dr. Yee Loon Soong, filed this patent application in order enhance the concrete structure's energy harvesting capabilities for embedded Internet of Things (IoT) applications, but to also significantly improve the overall performance of wireless technologies within buildings. Congratulations!
