III Announces Smart Life Technology at Annual Press Conference
According to American information technology research and advisory firm, Gartner, publishes in its report that the future trend of global science and technology will be tightly related in the field of “Mobile Device Competition”, “Mobile Application and HTML5”, “Personal Cloud”, “Enterprise App Shop”, “Smart IOT”, “Mixing of IT and Cloud Computing”, and “Strategic Big Data”.
Institute for Information Industry (III), supports by Department of Industrial Technology of MOEA, is vigorously striving for the integration of software and hardware industry in development of value-added innovative service, in research and develop key information and communication technology, as well as in alliance of strategic partners worldwide, and creating innovative dynamic cooperation model. Besides the above mention world trend of future technology, III endeavors in using ICT technology to return the investment of society, and providing cares for the minority by integration of various industries assisting entrepreneur of young generation; President of III, Dr. Ruey-Beei Wu announces at the press conference today (30th of April) and releases the six major topics of technology research and development of this year – “Enterprise Cloud System”, “Cyber Information Security”, “Smart Green Energy”, “Big Data Analysis”, and “Smart Life”. And, through application of relevant ICT technologies, Smart Life is to create fortune and lead Taiwan toward the blissful information society.
Cloud System Software Institute of III develops Cloud Appliance for Enterprise (aka CAFÉ). The system software technology includes Cloud Appliance Kernel Environment (CAKE), Personal Cloud Computer (PC2), and Cloud Object Storage Appliance (COSA) to content three major service demands of Enterprise Cloud; this is another accomplishment after consecutive success of technology transferring to Asus, Gigabyte, InWin, Delta Electronics, and PROMISE Technology with Cloud products announced. This year, III further assists Taiwanese vendor in commercialize application and develops products - “Cloud Computer Classroom Solution” and “Cloud Information Integration Platform - MobileReport”, a real success in creating tangible efficiency for enterprise Cloud application.
Furthermore, Cyber Trust Technology Institute (CTTI) of III has developed a Cyber Security product – “Crystal Security Keeper”, (CSK), which is Taiwan’s first among 21 companies worldwide who has pass U.S. MITRE Corporation’s International Cyber Security Weakness Recognition Authentication. This product provides a platform assisting enterprise computer framework in preventing hacker’s attack. What worth to mention, the platform not only conforms to international cyber information security management standard, but also has applies to 2’000 mainframes’ user terminal in 9 government organizations, serving successfully at post of cyber security guarding to assure the task of protection and prevention of cyber attack.
Smart Network System Institute (SNSI) of III has developed two technologies of “Smart Home Gateway” and “Smart Enterprise Energy Usage and Environment Management”, in responding to energy saving ecology protection, which is bundle with “Smart Green Architecture Center Control Management Solution” developed by Advanced Research Institute. Not only it control the electric energy usage at home and enterprise, but also a practicality of accomplishing green energy saving and carbon reduction trend, which uses nature light resource and wind power to regulate the use of energy, and increase energy efficiency highly.
Moreover, III develops a series of Smart Life technology, applying ICT technology in practicality of daily life; including “Distributed Database Management System (DDBMS)” developed by Innovative DigiTech-enabled Applications & Services Institute (IDEAS) of III, the technology is to overcome Internet packet jammed often faced by general public at traffic rush hours, or at Internet concert ticket purchasing; “Small Cell Light Terminal Base Station” develops by Smart Network System Institute of III is to improve problem of mobile network broadband jam, or indoor weak signal situation, and greatly increasing system capacity, transmission speed, connecting with business terminal, used in business back-end core networking connection function, vertical integration of multimedia A/V application, and relevant application of wireless broadband network platform for Cloud Computing.
“2TVnow Streaming Media Service Platform” technology has applied and proven at “Dating with a Prince” TV program, which viewer audience could outflank to preview the program through login APP, and also capable of receiving data of prince and participating females in sync at the proceeding of program to join the riddle answer activity. Such that it has greatly enhanced the interaction of audience and TV program, providing value-add service to video conference, and inducing “Multi-screens compound synchronization” technology application provides vendor innovative operation model to increase business opportunity.
Directing at “safety in motion”, Smart Network System Institute (SNSI) unfolds “Cloud Assistance of Vehicle Diagnoses and Erratic Occurrence Report System” to ensure driving safety. The system allow owner to carry out regular vehicle mechanic check-up by simply using a smart phone; and, through assistance of Cloud system at the time of erratic breakdown, it provides diagram of needed action which is possible to correct malfunction with steps by steps audio explanation and video guidance for the driver to eliminate simple cause of breakdown; driver can directly page Back-end Traffic Control Center to call for emergency rescue, by transmitting the exact position of vehicle and the status data to Cloud Traffic Center for quick dispatch of maintenance services personnel.
In the mass transportation area, the further development of “DRTS Demand Reaction Type Transportation System and iTravel Smart Travel Services” is to provide assistance for the bus company to solve the dispatching schedule perplexity. It even capable of providing Travel and Transportation Platform that offers high grade quality passenger-service package to integrate travel schedule, transportation planning, and sharing of scenic spots “after return to home”.
Among others, due to the constant change of consumer behavior, the future of m-Business era is moving toward the development of “Online and Offline integration”. MOEA’s Project technology executes by IDEAS - “S.E.R. Purchasing Guide for individualized community – seamless NFC Mobile-Business (ProMo)” is to catch the wave of future trend that via “mobile sensing and interactive” technology, combines with various smart device (e.g. smart phone, template PC, and outdoor digital display etc.) to achieve the objective of dynamic Smart value-added service. Such technology has been proven at the market field of Dream Mall in KaoHsiung where the shopping mall consumers are able to use smart phone interacts with digital display bill board and successfully create the fun of shopping at the Mall. The innovative smart shopping model of dynamic, image shaping of off-line online integrative marketing paradigm is thus realized.
As a matter of fact, “Smart Life” implies as it is, that through smart ICT technology it can create a blissful sensation of comfortable, convenient, time saving, energy saving, and efficiency life style for citizen. At this time, III is continuing with the spirit of “passion, innovation, and effectiveness” (PIE) organizational motto, as role of legal person institute, cooperating with government in leading domestic industry, developing more innovative information application, expanding cooperative research and developing in creating synthesis efficiency.
