En­vi­ron­men­tal sen­sor in­stal­la­tion to im­prove IoTs us­ing LoRa tech­nol­ogy

New Straits Times - - Business -


FOL­LOW­ING the col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Cyberview Sdn Bhd and Yen Global Bhd’s whol­ly­owned sub­sidiary Atilze Dig­i­tal Sdn Bhd, eight en­vi­ron­men­tal sen­sors have been suc­cess­fully in­stalled in Cy­ber­jaya with two more slated for in­stal­la­tion by the end of this month.

Cyberview manag­ing direc­tor Datuk Faris Ya­haya said this would ac­cel­er­ate the use of In­ter­net of things (IoT) in Cy­ber­jaya us­ing low power, long-range (LoRa) tech­nol­ogy in its aim to el­e­vate the city into a smart city.

“By pi­lot­ing tech­nolo­gies in Cy­ber­jaya, these in­no­va­tive so­lu­tions can be tweaked ac­cord­ing to the needs and de­mands of the peo­ple and once they have reached the high­est op­er­a­tional po­ten­tial, they can be de­ployed to dif­fer­ent parts of the coun­try. This will then ben­e­fit all,” he said.

Atilze chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Ger­rard Lim said the de­vel­op­ment of LoRa in the city would en­able the pro­vi­sion of de­tailed and re­li­able data on key en­vi­ron­men­tal pa­ram­e­ters, which in­cluded tem­per­a­ture, hu­mid­ity, and air qual­ity us­ing PM2.5 sen­sors.

“The in­stal­la­tion of the tem­per­a­ture and hu­mid­ity sen­sors en­ables the mea­sure­ment of the sur­round­ing air, which would then prevent el­e­ments like periods of heat wave af­fect­ing the com­mu­nity.

“The PM2.5 sen­sors in­stalled in Cy­ber­jaya en­able the mon­i­tor­ing of air qual­ity in­dex in real-time and can com­mu­ni­cate this valu­able in­for­ma­tion to the com­mu­nity.

“This would then prevent in­di­vid­u­als with med­i­cal prob­lems like asthma and chronic lung dis­ease from ex­pe­ri­enc­ing se­vere at­tacks due to not-so-ideal weather con­di­tions.” he said.

In ad­di­tion to this, Atilze and Cyberview will soon make avail­able a smart-park­ing so­lu­tions that uses LoRa-based park­ing sen­sors that will al­low res­i­dents and vis­i­tors de­tect avail­able park­ing spa­ces.


Cyberview manag­ing direc­tor Datuk Faris Ya­haya says the in­stal­la­tion of en­vi­ron­men­tal sen­sors in Cy­ber­jaya will help to el­e­vate the city into a smart city.
