MIMOS Leads Consortium in AR/VR Innovation
National applied research and development (R&D) agency, MIMOS, has announced the formation of a consortium aimed at spurring innovation in the area of Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality (AR/VR) technology and product design for industries in Malaysia.
SysArmy Sdn Bhd as an expertise in cybersecurity solutions is part of the Rekacipta Consortium, alongside three other member including Virtareal Sdn Bhd, which specialises in Augmented Reality platform development; Map2U Sdn Bhd, a consulting firm in Geographic Information System technologies; and MIMOS, which leads the consortium.
The four organisations bring to the consortium vast experience and resources in their respective fields, which is expected to lead to more effective services and increased market penetration through the sharing of ideas, insights and technological know-how.
The consortium will serve as a go-between on behalf of industry, for instance in communicating the industry’s strategic direction to the research community in academia.
The establishment of the consortium is set to see an increase in the adoption of AR/VR technologies into various industries in Malaysia such as R&D, smart manufacturing, asset management, tourism and education, among other critical sectors.
The consortium is also expected to contribute to the development of a new talent pool with the right competencies in the said fields, in tangent with the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR).
