At Swinburne Sarawak, in addition to presenting the WAZIUP technology to CDF’s researchers, a workshop on the applications of Internet of Things (IoT) for government officials was organized on 7 February 2018 by Director of CDF, Prof.
Patrick Then. “In this workshop, we will engage with various government agencies so we can share our expertise and gather feedback from them particularly to understand the challenges they face in smart farming and smart cities, and ultimately providing them with a framework for solution development to support the state’s Digital Economy vision,” said Prof. Then.
More than 50 people attended the workshop and the final question & answer panel showed the increasing interest of government agencies in IoT related technologies.
It is foreseen that a number of IoT-related projects will be funded by local agencies where the WAZIUP approach can be tested and
deployed. Again, it is expected that CDF research teams will start building their own WAZIUP IoT devices and gateways with the support of the numerous tutorial materials provided by WAZIUP.
