Taiwan Quick Take: WSN installed in housing

STAFF WRITER WITH AGENCIES

The government-funded Institute for Information Industry has cooperated with a local company to install a wireless sensor network (WSN) in a new housing complex in Taipei's Neihu District, according to a press release yesterday by the institute. An institute official said that the WSN technology installed at Century Garden -- built by Century Digital Science and Technology and technologically supported by the institute -- could provide extensive safety measures for children and the elderly. The battery-powered equipment offers services such as positioning and wireless emergency notification to provide vital information to firefighters or rescue teams in case of fire or when residents require immediate medical attention, the official said.
