    Awarded Bronze Medal
    IIUM Research, Invention and Innovation Exhibition IRIIE 2010, Culture Activity Centre (CAC)-IIUM, Kuala Lumpur, 6-7 January 2010.

    Abstract:
    iSpeechNews is a prototype which delivers a real-time news service, in the form of graphics and speech news, based on user location for Ubiquitous Computing Environment. The prototype is based on a protocol that requires five important hybrid stacks, i.e. 1. User indentity, 2. User location, 3. A real time news feeder, 4. Speech and dictations systems and 5. Lips phonetic synchronization. The aim is to prove easy interactions in the form of speech between user and the mobile computing environment while the user is on the move.

  12. Awarded Silver Medal
    20th International Invention Inovation and Technology (ITEX'09) Exhibition, Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, Malaysia, 15-17 May 2009.

    Abstract:
    iLukBA provided a solution for determining indoor symbolic (hierarchical) user location for mobile user. It works with small mobile devices such as PDAs and it is combined with the speech recognition systems on how the environment response delivered using speech recognition based on user location. It has been developed using an advanced and robust algorithm in determining user location for indoor environment which offers location precision accuracy less than a meter. iLukBA is capable to handle the unpredictability of IEEE 802.11 (WiFi) signals across perturbations in space, and in time (diurnally) by considering not only the use of WiFiís signal strength but also WiFiís signal quality and WiFiís noise. iLukBA also provides direct service delivery when a user is on the move from one location to another. The environment response in delivering service is based on the speed of user. Dynamic buffer is created, the buffer size depends on the speed of the user. The faster a user moves, the smaller the buffer in delivering the speech. iLukba is proof of a concept with a low cost smart environment capability, i.e. indoor user location can be determined and the environment response can be delivered using speech recognition based on indoor user location.

  13. VisUN-3D: Visualization of User Navigation Using 3D Maps in Virtual 3D Walk-spaces for Mobile User.
  14. Awarded Bronze Medal
    Malaysia Technology Expo (MTE) 2010 IIUM, Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC), Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

    Abstract:
    VisUN-3D is a mobile user navigation system using 3D model in a pervasive computing environment. The uniqueness of this wor k is that, we built a visualization of 3D campus maps inside 3D workspace at our campus environment to navigate several users at the same time by using their mobile devices such as PDAs. The 3D rendering and GPS navigation are embedded into various wireless PDA or smart phone devices to allow the navigation of the users. This approach could navigate more than 2 users in a 3D walk-space and at the same time navigate the users by showing their whereabout in 3D projection mapped on the same picture. The map shows the location of the user in the scene to navigate to the location of another user to meet on the same image plane. This approach can be expanded to be used for tracing elderly people with dementia especially Alzheimer disease and missing children.
