Applications of Internet of Things in Mushroom Farm Management


Internet of Things (IoT) based monitoring and control systems are widely used in a controlled environment to manage agriculture farms including mushroom farms. IoT can help to improve agricultural and farming industries by reducing labour cost through automation and increase the yield by providing optimum conditions for growth. The temperature, humidity, light intensity and CO 2 are some of the important parameters need to manage in a mushroom farm and these data are collected through wireless sensors. The implementation of this smart mushroom system has optimized the usage of resources such as water and fertilizer and also maximized the quality and productivity of the mushroom. In this project, the mushroom yield has increased almost twice (192.6%) compared to mushroom cultivation using conventional methods.


Mohamed Rawidean Mohd Kassim received his B.Sc. (Hons) degree in the Computer Sciences (1987) from National University of Malaysia, and his M.Sc. in Interacting Systems Design (1993) from Loughborough University of Technology, United Kingdom. He obtained his Six Sigma Black Belt in 2009 from Motorola University, Malaysia.

Mohamed Rawidean Mohd Kassim has worked for 35 years in MIMOS (Malaysian Institute of Microelectronic Systems), the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation Malaysia. MIMOS is the government applied and industrial R&D arm in IT and microelectronics. He joined MIMOS as a Research Fellow and now is the R&D Manager in the Technology Deployment department. His research interest areas are Wireless Sensor Network (WSN), Internet of Things (IoT), Real-Time Systems and Multimedia. He has participated in more than 30 national and international R&D projects as a team member, or leader on technical and management positions.

As a lecturer, he has taught computer science courses for undergraduate and graduate students in the area of WSN, IoT, Intelligent Real-Time Systems and Multimedia. He has written conference papers, one book chapter (‘Sensors for Everyday Life’, Springer Pub., 2017) and technical reports. He is also a member of the Industry Advisory Panel (IAP) for Monash University Malaysia and Kuala Lumpur University (UniKL).

Mohamed Rawidean has organized IEEE Computer Society national and international conferences, seminars and workshops. He is the Founding Chairman for IEEE Conference on Open Systems (ICOS) organized since 2010, Program Chair and Technical Program Chair for several IEEE conferences. Mohamed Rawidean is also the IEEE Computer Society Distinguished (DVP) Speaker since 2018 and delivered DVP talks in Malaysia, Korea and India. He has provided many keynotes, invited industrial talks and workshops in WSN, Intelligent Real-Time Systems and IoT. He has seven patents registered under his name, mostly in wireless sensors, networks and sensor applications.
