[vc_row][vc_column][vc_title title=”Short Bio” title_align=”text-left”][vc_column_text]Dr. Erdal Kayacan received a received a Ph.D. degree in electrical and electronic engineering at Bogazici University, Istanbul, Turkey. After finishing his post-doctoral research at KU Leuven at the division of mechatronics, biostatistics and sensors (MeBioS) in 2014, he worked in Nanyang Technological University at the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering as an assistant professor for four years. Currently, he is pursuing his research in Aarhus University at the Department of Engineering as an associate professor. He is the leader of Artificial Intelligence in Robotics (Air Lab) laboratory.

Dr. Kayacan is co-writer of a course book “Fuzzy Neural Networks for Real Time Control Applications, 1st Edition Concepts, Modeling and Algorithms for Fast Learning“, Butterworth-Heinemann, Print Book ISBN:9780128026878. (17 Sept 2015).

He is a Senior Member of Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). From 1st Jan 2017, he is an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Fuzzy Systems.

This new building inspector is a robot invented by scientists from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore), co-developed with Singapore’s national industrial developer JTC and local start-up CtrlWorks.

Named QuicaBot – short for Quality Inspection and Assessment Robot – it can move autonomously to scan a room in minutes, using high-tech cameras and laser scanners to pick up building defects like cracks and uneven surfaces.

A few of these robots working together will make inspecting a building a breeze. The robots can upload 3D data of the scans to the cloud and inform the human operator, who can then inspect critical and complex defects.

“Visual inspection of a new building is an intensive effort that takes two inspectors, so we have designed a robot to assist a human inspector to do his job in about half the time, saving precious time and manpower, and with great accuracy and consistency,” explained Prof Kayacan.
