Networked Laundry System, 2015 (Leader)
- Developed and implemented a country-wise networked washer and dryer system using Arduino Yun, RS-485 communication, and RFID. The developed system had been installed in multiple locations throughout Malaysia. A server is developed for centralized control.
VoIP Intercom, 2015 (Leader)
- Developed a VoIP Intercom system with a proprietary customized communication protocol and a power over Ethernet design. The system is targeted for smart home development and had been installed in Private Condominium as well as Government-funded Housing in PJ and KL area.
RFID-based Interactive Turnstile, 2014 (Supporting Member)
- Implemented an interactive turnstile using RFID and ultrasonic. The turnstile is installed at the customs checkpoint for autonomous access control and distance sensing. An Interactive display with fingerprint technology is integrated to promote an efficient self-checking process.
- The turnstile has been implemented in the customs checkpoint toll connecting Johor Bahru to Singapore, and won the Invention & Innovations Award in Malaysia Technology Expo 2015.
Interactive Information Kiosk for Hospital, 2014 (Supporting Member)
- Implemented an automate voice support information kiosk in the Government Hospital to provide interactive information service to the patient and customers.
