What if you can use Internet of Things (IoT) to capture the perfect photos of the stars? What if it can ease your Astronomical instrumentation operation? These are some of the questions we asked ourselves when Shahrin Ahmad of Falak Online came to visit FAVORIOT, we explored several opportunities how IoT can play a role in Astronomy landscape. Shahrin is a creative Astronomy speaker for outreach events. He is an experienced System developer for integrating astronomical instruments (telescopes, mounts, imagers ) and software, specifically on .NET framework. He had done many strategic consultations works on Astronomy to local agencies, universities, and schools. Shahrin is also the Owner and content provider for Malaysia’s Astronomy web portal, FalakOnline.
The possibilities of applying Internet of Things in different industries are endless. When you connect your most important asset, it will benefit not only the maker of the asset but also the users, other products and it’s surrounding environment.
Literally, watch this “Space” in the future.
