Imagine we are living in a smart community where city assets and community infrastructures are interconnected by IoT and cloud. The citizens can access to public resources, for example, buses, utility information, libraries, parking and traffic conditions, anytime and anywhere from where they are through wireless network. We will enjoy a high quality of life while significantly saving massive amount of energy and costs. Indeed, this ultimate goal requires multiple levels of technologies to achieve the efficiency we need.

From connected air conditioners to smart light bulbs and door locks, the home/room automation technology has been adopted not only at home, but also in the rooms of some of the most prestigious hotels and luxurious villas, giving guests complete control over almost every in-room appliance with the touch of a finger and therefore providing customers with premium experience and ultimate convenience.

One of the key performance indicators for determining the operation success of an airport is its capacity and efficiency for processing passenger and baggage check-in. Higher capacity and greater efficiency can be achieved via staff training, SOP enforcement and process automation.

Unmanned and interactive kiosks not only have revolutionized how goods and services are acquired but also have given rise to a sophisticated networked economy built upon retail diversity, convenience and cashless micropayments. These intelligent kiosks have become the new distribution channels and points of sales for many industries, including telecommunications, personal finance, photography, entertainment, food/dining and public transportation.

The combination of powerful CPUs and up to 8GB of 1333MHz DDR3L system memory enable optimized operating speeds and high throughputs for tackling even the most demanding factory automation applications.

Enhanced security operations such as physical security and surveillance analytics are required by almost all industries, including banking, retail, critical infrastructure, government, corporate, education and public transportation. Such security measures provide real-time intelligence for live detection of safety and security events and are instrumental not only in safeguarding business intelligence but also in facilitating efficient workforce management and optimizing operational decisions.

Natural disasters, like earthquake and typhoon, often result in building collapses, landslides and floods. To lower the casualties and minimize the extensive damages, a Taiwanese-based, IoT solution integrating company has worked closely with a local academic institution to develop a new real-time structure safety and hazard mitigation system. This system monitors the status of selected school buildings, historical monuments, bridges, tunnels and hill slopes in the greater Taipei area. The installment of the system will collect real-time status and deliver accurate measurement of the deployed sites and the gathered information serve as warning, damage reporting or post-disaster reconstruction purposes.
