8:40pm    Talk 3:  PETBLE: IoT for Pets
by Dr. NG Man Cheuk, Alfred, CTO of Suga International Holdings Ltd

Nowadays, pets are part of many people’s lives. With hectic schedules, pet owners can easily overlook health problems of their pets, especially when pets cannot verbally tell their owners that they are sick. This motivates us to start the PETBLE project which intends to combine state-of-the-art sensors, IoT and big data technologies to monitor the pets’ health and activities conditions 24 hours a day. First stage of the project involves the development of two devices: an activity tracker and a smart bowl. The former can identify individual pet and determine its activity level, while the latter is a precise electronic scale for monitoring the food intake. The data collected and generated by both devices are first sent to the pet owner's smartphone by the PETBLE app via Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), and then uploaded by the smartphone to the cloud for data mining and analytics. Using PETBLE, pet owners can view their pet's activities any time through their smartphone, and in case any abnormal condition of their pets is spotted by the system, the owners will instantly receive warning notifications so that prompt actions can be taken for their pets.

Dr. NG Man Cheuk, Alfred, is the chief technology officer of Suga International Holdings Limited. He is responsible for exploring new business opportunities and overseeing Research and Development (R&D) of the Group. Dr. NG holds Bachelor of Engineering (BEng (1st Hon.)) degree in Computing from Imperial College London, Master of Science (S.M.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D) degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). His research focuses on modular hardware design methodologies that can greatly reduce hardware development time. During his time at MIT, he had collaborated with IBM, Nokia and Qualcomm in various research projects. Prior to joining the Group, Dr. NG worked in a research group at Qualcomm focusing on future Wi-Fi technology in the United States for 3 years.
