industry, the new standard which is being developed will set safety requirements for the design, operation and maintenance of additive manufacturing facilities.
Originally created as safer, cheaper alternatives to manned military aircraft, drones are increasingly used in commercial operations. As they become more affordable, these unmanned aerial vehicles are being deployed for a multitude of purposes, to deliver parcels, detect emissions from ships to ensure compliance to environmental standards as well as inspect buildings.
With thousands of multi-storey buildings across the city, Singapore’s current focus is on the use of drones for building inspection. It’s faster, safer and cheaper to use drones fitted with cameras to inspect for possible building defects as compared with human inspections. With drones even inaccessible and poorly visible areas can be reached. The downside though is privacy and ground security.
The new standard which is being developed will have to cover building inspection guidelines as well as public safety and privacy protection. It will be applicable for facade inspection of all buildings, irrespective of whether they are residential, industrial or commercial.
“Quality and standards have supported our economic growth and will continue to shape Singapore’s future. It will underpin innovation, facilitate market access for enterprises and drive interoperability. It is important that public and private sector stakeholders come forward and lead the development of critical standards for Singapore,” said Mr Robert Chew, Chairman of SSC and Managing Partner of iGlobe Partners.
Global standard needed to secure smart devices
Even as Singapore develops national standards in response to domestic requirements, it recognises there are areas which demand a universal approach. High on the list is the Internet of Things (IoTs).
