The various SHARE projects have brought about improvements for the community in different areas such as:
- e- Agriculture
Sensor networks were built to gather data measured with various sensors on a field server and sent to specialists in urban areas through the network. Specialists then analysed the data and promptly sent feedback through the network such as urgent information or useful ways to resolve issues.
- e- Fishery
A network was built with sensors measuring water temperature, pH, dissolved oxygen (DO), turbidity and conductivity around the lakeshore. Field servers from three cooperating research groups (from the Philippines, Thailand and Japan) gathered the sensor data and information was distributed to fisherpersons through a portal site created and operated by Ateneo de Manila University.
- e- Education
An optical network connecting elementary and middle schools with a telecenter was constructed and educational solutions were provided to improve the Quality of Life of residents. Solutions were provided by Wi-Fi from the Optical Network Unit (ONU) to students using tablet PCs. Students accessed servers in the telecenter which provided educational applications for topics such as arithmetic and English and cloud services for storing photographs, video and other data on the server. This educational solution was implemented with the Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS).
- e- Healthcare
A basic health database and a wireless network connecting hospitals, clinics and regional government offices were built using Wi-Fi to centralize and share data such as measured height, weight and blood pressure from various health-related facilities. Web pages and CD players with large-screen TVs in hospital and clinic waiting rooms were also used to distribute government information about handling diseases such as dengue fever, influenza and rabies.
- e- Environment
A Machine to Machine network (M2M) was built for gathering fire control information in a peat land area, in cooperation with Palangkaraya University. Measurements were taken at the canal and at three points in the peat land. In addition to water levels, instruments for measuring carbon dioxide, methane, precipitation, temperature, humidity and wind speed were installed. The measurement data was collected by field servers and gathered on a data server by Wi-Fi. The data server and the university were also connected by a wireless network so daily data sequence for individual measurement points could be checked from the university, enabling quick response when there was a fire.
The projects also brought about a notable increase in the quality of life of the communities involved, reduced costs, interoperability and the creation of new industries in the target areas.
