The IoT Lab at Ho Chi Minh University of Technology (HCMUT, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam) and the Centre for Digital Futures (CDF) at Swinburne University of Technology Sarawak Campus (SUTS, Kuching, Malaysia) have recently expressed great interest in the low-cost and open IoT approach promoted by the EU H2020 WAZIUP project.
At HCMUT, Philippe Cousin (EGM) and Congduc Pham (UPPA) presented to Dean of Computer Science Department (Prof. Nam Thoai), Director of the IoT Lab (Dr. Hoang Anh Pham) and IoT Lab researchers the WAZIUP IoT platform that is currently deployed in a number of pilot sites in sub-Saharan Africa countries.
Both Prof. Thoai and Dr Pham from HCMUT confirmed that IoT in various domains such as SmartCities and Aquaculture are receiving highest
attention from local authorities and that the WAZIUP approach can definitely be tested and deployed in a number of local use cases. To show the maturity of the WAZIUP solution, Prof. Pham from UPPA brought a WAZIUP IoT starter kit that was installed in a few minutes,sending every hour the ambiant temperature to the WAZIUP IoT platform.
Since the WAZIUP IoT approach has been designed from the beginning for maximum appropriation and customization by third-parties, it is expected that HCMUT research teams will start building their own WAZIUP IoT devices and gateways with the support of the numerous tutorial materials provided by WAZIUP.
