Health IoT

Detecting breeding grounds of mosquitoes.

In 2015, Malaysia recorded 336 dengue related deaths, a whopping 50% increase from prior year. Globally mosquitos are the number 1 killer of humans with over 1 million deaths per year and the number on the rise. To tackle this problem, MAMPU, an organization for modernization is using IoT technology to detect the breeding grounds of mosquitos, and eliminate the issue from its inception.

CHALLENGES

Mosquito is the number one killer of humans with over 1 million deaths per year. Malaysian Government has set out to control the mosquito population by detecting the breading grounds.

BUSINESS IMPACT

In 2015, Malaysia recorded 336 dengue deaths, a whopping 50% increase from prior year. World Health Organization’s data show the number of cases increasing each year globally. Infection causing flu-like illness is costly for the health administration and growing threat to society.

INTEGRATION POINTS

  • Water Flow, Level Sensor
  • IoT Gateway
  • Video Surveillance Operation Manager – VSOM (Cisco)
  • Mobile APP
  • Surveillance Camera

WHY INTERACTOR®

Malaysian government had to address the dengue death problem quickly, and there was no time to wait for internal development team to work on the solution. Pulzze’s professional services team was able to complete end-to-end solution plus training in less than 1 month.

HOW INTERACTOR IS USED

Interfacing: Interactor® is installed in IR829 to interface with various sensors and handle different protocols and data formats.
Applying Logic: Solution logic is configured directly on the Interactor®. Data handling such as filtering, transformation, aggregation and normalization were performed at the gateway.
Maintenance: Project had to go through many iterations. Since Interactor® is configuration based, changes are applied with a few commands, bypassing the software development life cycle.
Physical connection: Cisco’s IoT gateway (Cisco IR829) is used to connect the sensors and devices.
