2. Treekeeping and improvement of green spaces
Smart Management of Electrical Appliances and Energy Saving using Internet of Things (LL013-16SUS)
anisi
Leader:
Dr. Mohammad Hossein Anisi
 




Members:
Prof. Dr. Abdullah Gani
Assoc. Prof. Dr. Rosli Salleh
Dr. Mohd Yamani Idna Idris
 

Objectives:
1. To design and implement an IoT-based system in FSKTM that is able to manage energy consumption level efficiently and effectively by implementing the ability to optimize the use and control the state of various electrical appliances including, but not limited to, fans, lights, and doors remotely by means of an external application on a mobile platform.

2. To supplement the proposed system with the ability to dynamically detect any changes to its environment, whether due to the presence or absence of the human actor, or due to a change in weather or time, and subsequently make an intelligent decision on the state of the device linked to the system.
3.To expand the proposed system to a scale large enough to encompass an entire building, thereby allowing for a cooperative decision making model between different areas of the building, as well as introducing a singular control point for ease of use for a manual controller.

The Design and Investigation of A Novel Ecological Air Cleaning and Cooling System Using the Concept of A Living Green Wall (LL019-16SUS)
chong wen tong

Leader:
Assoc. Prof. Dr. Chong Wen Tong
 



Members:
Prof. Dr.  Masjuki bin Hj Hassan
Dr. Chan Chee Seng
Dr. Tey Kok Soon
Associate Prof. Dr Ngoh Gek Cheng
Dr. Nasrin Agha Mohammadi

Background:
This project presents the concepts of ecological air cleaning and cooling systems as a green approach in University Malaya campus. 

It is a combination of two concepts which is the hydroponic vertical green system (nature concept) with the utilization of hydroponic grown plants and the evaporative cooling system (engineering concept). 

The engineering technology adapted in the system is direct evaporation system principle where when the pollutant air pass through the light shower of water over hydroponic plants. It reduces the air temperature and also actively degrade air dust particles and air pollutants such as formaldehyde and carbon dioxide in the air into their constituents of water
 
A Virtual Reality Application on Plants in University of Malaya (LL020-16SUS)
sarinder

Leader:
Assosciate Prof. Dr Sarinder Kaur





Members:
Professor Dr. Halijah Ibrahim
Dr. Sugumaran Manickam
Associate Prof. Dr Melasutra Md Dali

Objectives:
This project aims to develop a fully interactive virtual tour database system of the plants in University of Malaya, which utilizes a novel approach with easy navigation to be used by biodiversity scientists, students and plant enthusiasts to obtain new knowledge in a cost effective way. 

This novel approach could be the foundational model to cover hotspots, based on their biological importance, to cover regions within and outside the campus.
