Rebranding of the Malaysia Automotive Institute (MAI) - a note from the ceo
The Malaysia Automotive Institute has been rebranded as the Malaysia Automotive, Robotics & IoT Institute (MARii). The rebranding exercise expands our scope as the focal point, coordinating centre and think tank towards enhancing the competitiveness of the automotive industry and overall mobility, through the adoption of Robotics and the Internet of Things (IoT).
The advancement of automotive technology will create a convergence with overall mobility towards a higher degree of automation and connectivity. This is expected to spur greater cross-functional applications in Advanced Manufacturing and Advanced IT, with robotics and IoT applications rapidly becoming a fundamental requirement particularly in achieving Industry 4.0 compliance.
Together with the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI), MARii aims to unlock new avenues in accelerating the adoption of robotics and IoT within the automotive sector, at the same time aspiring to create technology spin-offs and applications in other areas and fields.
I look forward to greater collaboration between MARii and all relevant stakeholders, in creating a technology ecosystem towards a higher degree of societal benefit!
