The global population is continuing to grow at a rapid pace placing increasing demands on the global food supply. In addition, impacts from climate change and a yearly reduction of available arable land will require the Agricultural sector to develop better ways of increasing crop yields and reducing costs. GOAL The goal for the Precision Crop Management Testbed is to create an environment where IoT solutions with the potential to impact world hunger can be developed.
One of the most difficult problems facing the world is conserving energy in buildings. However, it is not easy to have a cost-effective solution to reduce energy usage in a building. One solution for saving energy is to implement an intelligent building automation system (BAS) which can be controlled according to its schedule. In Indonesia a large university with a five floor building and 22 classrooms wanted to save the amount of energy being used.
Conservation of energy resources through energy management solutions are receiving considerable attention in the modern office building sector. Specific questions were directed towards average monthly energy costs and energy consumption. Meanwhile administrators need to have sufficient information about the state of their facilities’ to plan energy conservation. For those reasons, new office buildings are usually embedded with advanced technology energy efficiency features to monitor their electricity and water resources to detect leaks in the building’s plumbing and facilities usage to reduce energy costs as well as providing a comfortable office environment.
The growing water shortage is regarded as the most crucial global challenge, affecting both developing and developed nations at present. Large amount of water is lost in between the point of production and receipt by end users due to leaky pipes and outdated infrastructure. This results in the loss of millions of dollars and huge wastage of such a key resource. GOAL A substantial opportunity exists to reduce the amount of water lost. As water can be lost at multiple points over a wide geographical area, Internet of Things (IoT) technology is particularly well suited to address this problem. The Smart Water Management Testbed will implement a network of real-time sensors (leakage, moisture, and water -flow detection). These will be deployed at high-risk locations across the testbed water infrastructure to reduce the amount of water being ‘lost’ by: • Rapid detection of leaks • Preemptive detection of potential leaks • Precision irrigation of watered areas
Water pipeline pressure needs to be kept at 0.3 Mpa in order to deliver a reliable stream of tap water to homes, businesses, and factories.

The University of Indonesia has a class booking system which is used to force students and lecturers to use the classrooms effectively. Therefore, the proposed intelligent building automation system needed to be able to integrate with this system and update the schedule time automatically. The proposed system needed to use a SCADA system that could control the lights and air conditioners based on the scheduled system, and monitor the lights and ACs in real-time. Power consumption can also be measured using a power meter installed in the building and connected to the controller.
To manage the data coming from the circuit breakers and air conditioners an IPC-7220 industrial PC is installed with WebAccess 8.0.
Going beyond SCADA, WebAccess 8.x is also a HTML5 Business Intelligent Dashboard which can be opened from anywhere on any HTML5 compatible browser. The Business Intelligent Dashboard analyses data and helps managers make decisions as to what to do and WebAccess 8.x also provides developers with the tools to design their own widgets and applications and the integration with many database systems such as MySQL, Oracle, SQL Server, through ODBC. Included is a set of Excel templates or users can build their own report templates to generate daily, weekly, monthly and yearly reports to help predict the status of equipment. Through HTML5, a limitless number of users, with varying access levels are able to read information and make changes from wherever they are using either the Internet or Intranet.
To connect the IPC-7220 to the rest of the network and EKI-3528 unmanaged switch is used. The EKI-3528 is a new generation of products with a green Ethernet design. They feature green solutions that automatically adjust power consumption by detecting the link status and cable length. Designed with 1/2 "VIP" ports to get optimal bandwidth for media traffics through VIP ports users can experience better performance of multimedia streaming preferred through prioritized bandwidth setting. The devices come with compact metal and plastic housing that is IP40 rated to protect against dusty industrial environments. The wide power input power (8.4 to 52.4 VDC) is dedicated to operate in areas of unstable power and rugged environments. It also provides an event alarm and in the event of a power failure and connection loop, the integrated LED will activate the alarm to notify administrators.
After the switch is an ADAM-5510/TCP which is used to connect to the air conditioning controllers and the circuit breakers via the ADAM-5056S’s 16-ch Digital Output Module and ADAM-5051S’s 16-ch Digital Input Module. The ADAM-5510/TCP, ADAM-5056S and ADAM-5051S combination is used to control and monitor the status of circuit breakers which is connected to the lights in the classroom. In addition, all ACs in classrooms can be turned on/off based on the scheduler by using IR-Controller which are connected to ADAM-5510/TCP through an RS-485 connection.
The Shanghai Hung-Xiang Building was completed in June, 2011. This new office building with 15 floors and 3 basement levels, implemented the Building Energy Management System (BEMS) to effectively monitor its equipment usage, especially in terms of electricity and water. Because of its large building area, the building needed more than a thousand monitoring points to collect details of the facilities’ conditions and control several subsystems, including fresh air handling units, heat pumps, water supply and the facilities’ energy conservation devices. All of the data has to be transmitted to the energy management system to help the supervisor to fully understand the situations of each floor.

Moxa's ioLogik W5340 is a cellular RTU solution designed specifically for remote monitoring systems. Compared with RF monitoring solutions, cellular offers a more cost efficient way to build a remote monitoring solution. Traditional cellular products use polling to request data, which requires a static and public IP. Moxa’s ioLogik W5340 can actively update pressure values to the SCADA system regardless of what kind of IP address it uses. In addition, active reporting provides a way to get real-time data from the remote location, which is impossible with a polling system. As a simple comparison, it takes a traditional polling architecture two to three minutes to obtain four different pressure values from different monitoring sites. The ioLogik W5340 can use active communications to obtain the status in just a few seconds. Moreover, the ioLogik W5340 also supports local intelligence, so control logic can be executed and stored in the front-end device for a truly PC-free solution. The ioLogik W5340 includes free Active OPC Server software that integrates seamlessly with any SCADA system. In addition to Active OPC Server, the free Moxa DA-Center software allows users to feed the I/O data straight into a database or quickly produce Excel files for data analysis.
