Brawijaya University and PT. XL Axiata, Tbk establish cooperation on IOT (Internet Of Things) Implementation in form of joint laboratory. Signing the Memorandum of Understanding was carried out at XL Axiata Tower Jakarta on Tuesday (13/Nov/2018).

The MoU initiator Hadi Suyono, S.T., M.T., Ph.D organized partnership on IOT considering currently the world is entering the 4.0 industrial revolution that changes industries' common mind set of behavior towards automation based on Internet.

One form of cooperation implementation is module standardization. It refers to devices modules usually used for education and workshop. The modules can be used not only for students' knowledge but also skills. Meanwhile the workshop is not only for students but also can be used for publics.

"Later they will come to our place and have a workshop and we will make a certification," said Hadi.

Another form of cooperation implementation is customized project or according to user needs which is more specific.

"So we will make create an IOT based technology/devices in accordance to user needs or commonly known as usecase. XL has many projects to be made. UB as a partner will provide solutions upon the projects they made," he said.

IoT implementation based on customer needs is like Brawijaya University propose on how to create a device to monitor forest based on internet. Another example is several times ago Dycode in collaboration with XL created a device to monitor imported cattle. So how to monitor its state, from the weight of a cow, whether it is healthy, sick or stress.

The Electrical Engineering lecturer expected in the future of the partnership can realize a laboratory. Not only research laboratory but also capable of creating products which is related with XL.

"So of XL needs we can provide solutions or vice wersa, then of the partnership we can improve students' skills via workshop that we have because this is a part of SKPI (Surat Keterangan Pendamping Ijazah/Diploma Certificate Companion). Thus our internal can increase, fulfill the academic communities' needs as well as from research we develop," said Hadi. [Oky Dian/Humas UB/trans. Denok]
