Using IoT to Capture the Stars

milky-way-923801_1280.jpg

What if you can use Internet of Things (IoT) to capture the perfect photos of the stars? What if it can ease your Astronomical instrumentation operation? These are some of the questions we asked ourselves when Shahrin Ahmad of Falak Online came to visit FAVORIOT, we explored several opportunities how IoT can play a role in Astronomy landscape. Shahrin is a creative Astronomy speaker for outreach events.  He is an experienced System developer for integrating astronomical instruments (telescopes, mounts, imagers ) and software, specifically on .NET framework. He had done many strategic consultations works on Astronomy to local agencies, universities, and schools. Shahrin is also the Owner and content provider for Malaysia’s Astronomy web portal, FalakOnline.

The possibilities of applying Internet of Things in different industries are endless. When you connect your most important asset, it will benefit not only the maker of the asset but also the users, other products and it’s surrounding environment.

Literally, watch this “Space” in the future.

favorcity-23.png

I have written an article regarding “Top Jobs in IOT Value Chain” in March 2017 and predicted the IoT developers will on demand within 2-3 years time frame. However, in order develop this new skills, we believed that it should start with proper training in the Universities. Thus, within less than 3 months we have made a partnership with 15 Universities (including 1 from Singapore) (Note: All the names will be disclosed later) whereby FAVORIOT will be providing the IoT platform for the following purpose:

  1. Hands-on Lab for students
  2. Final Year Projects
  3. R&D projects for the students and lecturers
  4. Beta trial – within and outside the University

We hoped this initiative will spur the interests in IoT and also groom the next Generation-IoT.

Are you ready to become Generation-IoT?

[Video] – How To Build Your Own IoT Applications

Organizations shouldn’t rush into IoT without a proper understanding of its benefits, business implications and the need for digital transformation. The simplest way to start is to get a Subject Matter Expert in IoT to advise how to start. It’s a long journey and every journey starts with a simple step.

“That’s a lot of churning and creative destruction, and it’s probably safe to say that almost all of today’s Fortune 500 companies will be replaced by new companies in new industries over the next 59 years” [Source: Mark J. Perry]

If today’s businesses don’t transform, they will face the same fate as the Fortune 500 companies.

The Growth of Generation-IoT in Malaysia

22

Generation-IoT

Malaysia needs a pool of Generation-IoT to propel into the era of Internet of Things and turn the National IoT Strategic Framework into a reality. We need about 100K of IoT workforce which is more than the target as stated in the Framework because to support the whole value-chain of IoT. But how do we groom the workforce of the future?

FAVORIOT understand this problem very well. Malaysian-made IoT products and solutions can’t grow fast with the existing competencies. We can take an easy path of buying overseas products and roll-out in the country but we will not achieve our target as knowledge workers.

Even though FAVORIOT is a small and the latest startup in Malaysia, the co-founders of FAVORIOT comprised of industry veterans and experts in their own field. We have the vision to spur the IoT ecosystem and also offer a smart health solution focusing on Senior Care.

Recently, FAVORIOT partners with 10 Malaysian Universities to groom the new Generation-IoT. We expected another 5 including 1 overseas Universities to use FAVORIOT IoT Middleware as their tool to help students and lecturers to quickly build IoT solutions.

We hoped our efforts with the Universities will be able to groom the new pool of talents to support the whole industry. Let’s join us in a journey towards IoT in Malaysia.
