KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 10 (Bernama) -- NY Design (M) Sdn Bhd, an incubatee of Technology Park Malaysia, is making waves among Malaysians, in encouraging the conservation of the environment with go-green initiatives through its flagship brand, Green Pit Stop (GPS).
 
The company reached out to participants at the 10th International Greentech & Eco Products Exhibition & Conference Malaysia (IGEM) 2019 on 9th to 11th October at the KL Convention Centre.
 
The three-day event is organized by Ministry of Energy, Science, Technology, Environment and Climate Change (MESTECC) in collaboration with Malaysian Greentech Corporation.

The initial development of GPS is creating creative craft products out of plants and recyclable materials. Also known as upcycling, its main aim is to reduce the volume of discarded wastes and materials into landfills.
 
The next step is to have a connected garden that gives unique opportunity for individuals to interact with and care for their plants, flowers, and vegetables on a level that has traditionally been impossible.
 
GPS is tapping IoT technology by integrating botanical science and arts towards improving creativity. Software application that can help smartphone users remotely monitor requirements of humidity, sunlight, temperature and fertilizers towards maintaining the health of plants, using GPS-TAC, an innovative green solution.
 
GPS-TAC IoT farm was created with strong environmental awareness that aims to create a generation that understand the green concept adding the IoT technology in GPS with audio and lights sensor, a partnership project with Aspevo Tech. They design and develop specific notification for Android and ioS smartphones, and create a marketplace that will provide more services online.
 
The green IoT platform was officially launched by YB Yeo Bee Yin, Minister of MESTECC on 9th October.
 
NY Design creative director, Puan Noraznin Yusof, who is extremely passionate about her efforts in preserving and saving the environment, is currently pushing the boundaries through her go-green projects to greater heights by educating and encouraging the communities of the next generation.

“Technology Park Malaysia has an integrated infrastructure, facilities and support services to assist technopreneurs and entrepreneurs like me, who are keen to commercialize our green ideas. In the short span of time, we have now developed more than 15 concepts and are working on several other initiatives by tapping the latest technology including the IoT towards integrating science and arts towards improving our creativity,” she added.
 
“In our efforts to encourage the development and growth of creativity through science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education, we realized that there is also a need to add the element of Arts. Hence, we have now embarked on another educational version to boost creativity with STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) to ensure a sense of balance between science and arts function,” she explained.

Technology Park Malaysia, an agency of MESTECC, has an integrated infrastructure, facilities and support services to assist technopreneurs and entrepreneurs who are keen to commercialize their ideas in the four industry clusters, namely, ICT, Engineering, Biotechnology and Green Technology.
