Dr. Ruzairi Abdul Rahim. The result of a three-party cooperations which consist of research group from Instrumentation and Sensing Technology (InSeT), FKEE; Development and Maintenance Centre (PPP) and Information Technology Centre has successfully solve the project according to the targeted date.

Smart Lecture Room System provides lecture room that is uniquely IoT-based for the UTHM main campus which are also equipped with automatic door lock system and also Infrared Motion Sensing (PIR) in order to enhance security of the lecture room together with internal and external lamps control system which are able to reduce the electricity cost. Both systems can be controlled by using Smart Telephone Application (Blynk). According to the project research leader, Ts. Dr. Elmy Johana Mohamad this project is to support the Fourth Industrial Revolution (IR4.0) through the IoT technology use which is new and smarter.

The use of IoT is the combination of electronic and internet which will give benefits in human life in line with the development of IR 4.0 technology. Meanwhile, Dr. Ruzairi in his speech said that this project can be an example to the other researcher because UTHM has always want project which is conducted by its own researcher.
