Sunway Library's Shelf-Reading Robot

To support and encourage our students and staff in creative works involving robotics, we have designed, built and installed a state-of-the-art robot for our library. Developed and built by our own School of Engineering and Technology, this new Shelf-reading Robot will expand our network of touchpoints for students and staff while boosting library service efficiency and experience. The inspiration behind inventing a library shelf-reading robot was to automate and expedite the time-consuming manual checking of the accuracy and organisation of the library bookshelves.

LaunchX: Building the Startup Generation of Tomorrow

Sunway University, likely the only university around the region or even the world to have access of a multibillion conglomerate with 13 business lines and in-house venture capital firms – has created a game changing open innovation ecosystem which is being continuously evolved to support the growth of local start-ups as well as create employers instead of employees. One of its notable initiatives is the Start-up Foundry, an entrepreneurship programme launched by Sunway Innovation Labs (iLabs) at Sunway University in collaboration with Sunway University’s School of Science and Technology. This programme has accelerated the emergence of sustainability-focused businesses by Sunway students. Some of the environmental concerns these start-ups address are fast fashion, single-use plastic in the F&B industry and sustainable packaging solutions.
