“Save In Time” is a system intended to be installed in the homes of elderly singletons and it uses AI image recognition technology to automatically monitor the health status of the elderly. When the elderly are detected by the system to be in danger, get fainted or in need of rescue, the system will generate an alarm signal to try to awaken the elderly. If the condition does not improve, the system will send a message to alert family members to call for rescue.

“SHACKS: The Ozone Deodorization & Manure Storage Managing System” is an automatic detection and alerting system to raise the utilisation rate of mobile toilets by improving their hygienic condition. The system uses Arduino UNO as the main circuit, which works with a water level sensor to detect any sewage overflow, and an infrared sensor to determine whether the mobile toilet is currently in use. The system is also equipped with an ozone dispenser to remove odour.
