About the Event

IEEE Singapore Festival 2021

This year, we celebrate the 12th annual IEEE Day across the globe on 5 October. In the spirit of IEEE Day 2021, we are delighted to host the “IEEE Singapore Festival 2021”. Beginning on 5 October, the one-week festival will include an all-virtual series of technical and professional talks, networking sessions, and fun social contests.

This festival is jointly organised by the IEEE Young Professionals Singapore and IEEE Women in Engineering Singapore affinity groups.

In the Internet of Things (IoT) environment, a sensor interface device is essential for data collection in wireless sensor networks systems such as health care, environmental monitoring, surveillance, patrolling, security service, search and rescue missions, military operations, smart farming, and industrial control systems. However, the sampling rate and signal types of sensors are restricted by the type of devices used in the applications. In the talk, we present three Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) applications in IoT environments such as water quality monitoring system, energy-efficient PV solar system, Thermal and Humidity monitoring of green wall. The FPGA-based monitoring system consists of an FPGA design board, sensors, Zigbee communication modules, Arduino boards. In the water quality monitoring systems, we measure the parameters such as water temperature, water level, water pH, turbidity, and CO2 on the water’s surface using sensors. Further, in the green wall monitoring system, we measure the temperature and humidity using IoT sensors. In PV solar system, we measure the voltage, current using the voltage and current sensors.
