CYBERVIEW, ATILZE IN CYBERJAYA PROJECT
Environmental sensor installation to improve IoTs using LoRa technology
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.
