‘Microlink apps can tackle issues’
KUALA LUMPUR: Microlink Solutions Bhd is launching three new Internet of Things (IoT) applications that can address some of the issues affecting the operations of Malaysia’s flood and natural disaster mitigation, energy management and plantations sectors.
The applications, known as Smart Environmental Management System, Smart Energy Management System and Smart Plantation System, are expected to benefit industries that have been underserved by the IoT players.
Microlink Group chief executive officer Chia Yong Wei said its Smart Environmental Management System is an IoT solution that collects, analyses and transmits critical information on rainfall, water levels, humidity and so on to enable better flood prevention and mitigation measures.
“This solution will enable authorities to better analyse risk areas and predict potential disasters based on existing data to provide an early warning system.
“In the event of a flood, the system will be able to transmit relevant information on affected areas with images overlaid onto maps in real time,” he said.
