On 20th November 2019, IEEE AIUB Student Branch, in collaboration with IEEE Industry Applications Society AIUB Student Branch Chapter and Faculty of Engineering, successfully organized a seminar on “Optical Task Offloading for Cloud Networked Robotic Applications in Industry 4.0” at AIUB. The seminar focused on the applications of Cloud Networked Robotics systems and the effects of Optical-task Offloading. The seminar was inaugurated by Prof. Dr. Mohammad Abdul Mannan, Director, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB who gave a brief idea of Industry 4.0 as well as its benefits and demand. The seminar was conducted by Dr. Akhlaqur Rahman, Lecturer, Industrial Automation and Mechatronics, Engineering Institute of Technology (EIT), Melbourne, Australia. He initiated the session by briefly talking about cloud computation and its benefits. He elaborately explained the mechanism of task offloading along with the key features of Cloud Robotics. He also gave a brief idea on the Genetic Algorithm of Cloud Networked systems and also displayed some software-based simulation of various projects into which he has taken part. He also motivated the participants by explaining the promising future of cloud networked robotic systems and encouraged them for pursuing their higher education in that field.
The closing speech was delivered by Dr. Mohammad Hasan Imam, Counselor, IEEE AIUB Student Branch; Sr. Assistant Professor, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB where he discussed about the importance of Robotics in recent times and suggested the participants to focus on practical knowledge. He thanked the speaker for conducting the seminar. Dr. Imam presented a token of appreciation to Dr. Akhlaqur Rahman on behalf of IEEE AIUB Student Branch. The seminar was graced by the presence of Mr. Kawshik Shikder, Motivator, IEEE AIUB Student Branch; Asst. Professor, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB; Dr. Rifat Hazari, Asst. Professor, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB; Mr. Mohammad Khurshed Alom, Lecturer, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB; Mr. Rabiul Islam, Lecturer, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB.
