New Straits Times - - Business -

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.
