From June 2016, WeGO carried out its annual Feasibility Study (F/S) Project 2016 in the beautiful city of Seberang Perai, Malaysia. After three months of tailored analysis and a couple of study visits to the city, the “Street Lamp & Traffic Light Monitoring System using Big Data, IoT & Mobile Technology” pilot project was successfully implemented in the city on December 15, 2016.


This smart monitoring system detects lights that are not working without the need for manual checking and allows efficient maintenance as well as reduction in the required workforce to do the work. The pilot project, which consists five units of LED lights and one unit of traffic lights, will be operating in the pilot site until June 2017 and will contribute to creating a smart monitoring system for the lights throughout Seberang Perai in the nearest future.
