Internet of Things Solutions Centre

The Internet of Things (IoT) Solutions Centre was set up in 2017 to enhance our IoT capabilities through deeper industry collaborations.

In return, the Centre also allows local enterprises to tap on the creativity and expertise of RP staff and students to create innovative interoperable solutions and services to support their own organisational needs and initiatives. 

IOT Solution Centre

Resources

The IoT SolutionsCentre chiefly draws on the expertise of RP School of Infocomm staff members, who frequently collaborate with specialists from RP School of Engineering and other disciplines to create domain-specific IoT applications and services.

The Centre is also equipped with various state-of-the-art technologies, including:

  • Raspberry Pi

  • Arduino

  • Sigfox

  • Libelium

  • Amazon Web Services (AWS) IoT


Current projects

Aquarium monitor

Remote Monitoring System for Aquatic Farming

A device which uses sensors to monitor the water quality in an aquarium in real time. It autonomously alerts fish hobbyists to abnormal readings via email and allows them to adjust problematic water conditions before they can affect the fish.

This system could implemented on a larger scale in commercial freshwater or saltwater fish farming. 

SigFox

IoT System using Sigfox Network

A smart IoT system leveraging Sigfox technology that collects data and transforms it into useful information via data analytics and machine learning.

Traffic Lights 2

Pedestrians Responsive Traffic Lights

A prototype traffic light system designed by a trio of RP School of Infocomm students, which can determine in real time the number of pedestrians at a traffic junction and adapt traffic signal timings based on actual traffic demand.

For instance, if the system detects a significant number of people waiting at a traffic junction, it will coordinate a longer traffic signal to allow all pedestrians sufficient time to cross safely. 

MINDS app

Past industry collaborations and consultancy work

In 2015, the IoT Solution Centre designed a learning and assessment application for special needs students and educators. Developed in close collaboration with the Movement for the Intellectually Disabled of Singapore (MINDS), the tablet app builds on traditional flashcard teaching methodology, which typically assigns a single image or descriptor to a concept.

The application enables educators to associate concepts with more than one object instead, and allows them to add their own images, sounds and descriptors to customise content for their students too. This, in turn, allows students to make richer and deeper connections between more complex concepts and objects. 

The application also automates student assessment and data collection, improving teacher workflows.
