Press release from Keningau Vocational College
Despite the travel restrictions as a result of the ongoing pandemic, a student from Keningau Vocational College found a way to present his project at a conference by doing it virtually.
Adee Deax Romzee, enrolled in Electrical Technology Programme, presented his final year project through Zoom, an online platform, at an International Conference on Social Science and Humanity (ICSSH) which was hosted in Paris, France on June 10, 2020.
The conference was organized by Eurasia Research.
The title of his paper was “Automatic Lock for Hostel Students in an Effort to Increase the Security of Their Valuables from Theft”. He was doing research on this since it was a requirement in his study.
Adee utilized Arduino, a programmable circuit board often used in creating digital devices, to modify the traditional padlock so it can be unlocked and locked without the need for physical keys.
It simply requires a mobile phone to operate the lock. As a result of his presentation at this virtual conference, his paper will also be published in an international journal.
Adee wanted to explore the potential of emerging technological trends like Arduino as there is a growing demand for innovations that meet the concept of Industrial Revolution 4.0 (IR 4.0).
The director of the college Johari @ Jaibet Bin Sabin always encourages the students and teachers at that college to be involved in research so they can improve their communication skills and be leaders in their fields of interest.
Keningau Vocational College has presented research at conferences in the UK, Australia, Italy, France, Germany, Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore and Brunei in the past.
