Welcome! to Dr. Aizzat Research Portal
Dr. Muhammad Aizzat Zakaria is borned in Jitra, Kedah. He currently serves as a Head of Programme Mechatronics Dual Degree (UMP-HsKA Germany) at the Faculty of Manufacturing and Mechatronic Engineering Technology, Universiti Malaysia Pahang (UMP) located in Pekan, Pahang. He is a research member of the Autonomous Vehicle Laboratory, Automotive Engineering Centre UMP and IMAMS laboratory UMP. He earned his first degree in Electrical-Mechatronic Engineering at the Universiti Teknologi Malaysia in 2010 which was fully sponsored by Majlis Amanah Rakyat (MARA) during his study. He was nominated for Vice-Chancellor Award and Dean’s List Awards during his first degree due to his outstanding achievement. After finished his first degree, he pursued a career as a process R&D Engineer and Technical Project Manager at Intel Corporation under Assembly Test Capital Equipment Development (ATCED) department in Kulim, Kedah. After that, he pursued a Doctoral’s degree in Mechatronic Engineering specialised in Autonomous Vehicle development at the Universiti Teknologi Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur, to which he graduated in 2015 and then continue to serve UMP as a senior lecturer until now. He has published many research articles related to autonomous vehicle development in Malaysia, co-editor for technical books, and reviewers for the prestigious international journal; particularly in autonomous vehicle development. He is keen and competent in robotic programming such as Robotic Operating System (ROS) development, C, C++, Python, MATLAB and Visual Basic. He has conducted many training and consultation based on his expertise. His research interests include intelligent vehicle navigation, vehicle stability control, robotics system modelling, and mechatronics system. He believes that it is the responsibility of every researcher to give back to society and his turn has come around.
SCAV Simulator Development
The SCAV simulator is developed in such a way as to mimic the actual SCAV prototype developed in our laboratory. The simulator is able to perform the following functions:
Low level hardware development
Low level hardware development to convert the manual control vehicle into the intelligent vehicle prototype.
IREV Prototype Development
Prototype development for trajectory tracking algorithm verifications
AGV for navigation research
Ground robot for mapping and navigation research
