The explosive growth of the “Internet of Things” is changing our world and the vast amount of IoT components allows engineers to innovate new designs and products at home and industry. In this workshop, you will learn the importance of IoT in society, the current components of typical IoT devices and trends for the future. IoT design considerations, physical and cyber security, constraints and interfacing between the physical world and IoT device will also be covered.

Please do not miss this rare opportunity to learn to design and create IoT solution on Raspberry Pi platform. This workshop will cover a hands-on approach in configuring IoT sensors, gateway and cloud in a lab-setting environment.

Date:             19 July 2017Wednesday (8:30am – 5:00pm)

Venue:           General Lab, Level 4, UTM AIS, Menara Razak

Fees:             Early Bird: RM200 (Deadline 13 July 2017)

Normal Registration: RM250 (Deadline 17 July 2017)

Instructors:   Dr. Royan Ong and Mr Adam Rizal Azwar

Why attend this workshop?

The workshop is highly interactive with short presentations in an all-day lab setting with lots of time for experimenting.

Participants would be introduced to embedded systems programming using C, embedded Linux system configuration and programming and IoT gateway to cloud interfacing using sockets.

Learn How To
  • Define the term “Cyber-Physical Systems” and “Internet of Things”
  • Programme embedded systems using C for sensor side
  • Configure and write a Linux system codes for IoT gateway
  • Use sockets to transfer data between IoT gateway and the cloud
  • Perform data analytic on the cloud side


Dr Royan Ong had been tinkering with electronics and computers since the tender age of ten. He has championed electronics since his schooling days with participation and guiding students for electronics competitions and events. He obtained his BEng in Electronics and Software and PhD from the University of Leicester, UK, in 1998 and 2003. Dr Ong developed and implemented software- augmented hardware-based error detection and/or correction techniques for processors used in safety critical and reliable embedded systems, as part of his PhD.

Dr Ong is a consultant and professional instructor in Embedded Systems (hardware and software), FPGAs and programming, having trained over 1600 engineers since 2009. He is the Director and Principal Consultant for Software and Embedded Systems at ProvenPac Sdn Bhd ( Dr Ong combines his technical and education background in developing training programmes for various establishments. Dr Ong was formerly a Senior Lecturer in Advance Computer Architecture, VLSI Design and Embedded Systems at Monash University, Malaysia. Prior to this, he was a Lecturer in Embedded Systems at the University of Leicester, UK. Dr Ong started his professional career as a researcher on the GLACSWEB Project ( with the University of Southampton, UK, creating and developing the world’s only wireless sub-glacial monitoring system to aid studies in Global Warming. He is currently developing IoT-enabled sensors for healthy lifestyle, environmental monitoring and domotics with UKM, USIM and ISN.

Dr Ong’s focus and research interest centres around the Internet of Things (IoT) and Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs), with Embedded Systems, Digital Design and FPGAs forming his research platform. In particular, he is involved in the development of ultra-low power IoTs and their application in domotic and hostile environments. His other interests are photography and hiking.



Adam Rizal Azwar has been in electronics R&D industry for more than fifteen years. He has worked in various companies both locally and abroad. He obtained his Bachelor of Electronics and Computer Engineering from Monash University, Australia in 1995. In 2011, he completed his master degree – MSc In Reliable Embedded Systems (Merit) – from University of Leicester, UK. His thesis is on developing a low cost JTAG Debugger for processors used in safety critical and reliable embedded systems, which was sponsored by TTE Systems Ltd., UK. Adam currently works as Embedded System Architect at ProvenPac. He is responsible for designing embedded systems covering both hardware and firmware. Before joining ProvenPac, Adam was a Technical Manager in Sapura Secured Technologies, Kuala Lumpur. His role in Sapura was to lead a team of engineers in developing tactical devices for the use of Malaysian Armed Forces.

The core of these devices is Linux, hence, Adam has a strong knowledge in both Linux and embedded systems. Prior to Sapura, Adam was an embedded system engineer in TTE System Ltd., UK where he was involved in developing Battery Management Systems for electric vehicles. He also worked in Motorola Malaysia and Japan where he was part of embedded systems team to develop telematics control unit for BMW vehicles in Japan. Adam’s main interest is in Embedded Linux and programming embedded systems. His other interests are tennis and travelling.
