NUS is also the home of the single-seater, micro-electric vehicle. The university has partnered Toyota Tsusho Asia-Pacific to research the viability of such vehicles for short travel distances.
Richard Lee, general manager for the IT and Electronics Department at Toyota Tsusho Asia-Pacific, explained that M2M is used in this research project to manage the fleet of vehicles as part of a car-sharing scheme. The data transmitted to backend servers helps track and monitor the performance and location of these vehicles, he said.
