Institute for information industry

The Institute for Information Industry (III) was established in 1979 as a non-governmental organization, jointly sponsored by the Taiwan government and prominent private enterprises, for the purpose of strengthening the developments of information industry in Taiwan. Along with the technology advancement, III’s mission has evolved from the developments of information technology (IT) to Information and Communication Technology (ICT), with coverage over the entire society. Since its inception, III has been a source of vision, innovation, technological excellence and a major contributor to Taiwan's development into a significant player in the global ICT area.
Today, through more and more international collaborative projects, III has been aiding many other countries across the globe, by bringing in the benefits of III's engineering expertise and management skills, to develop their own ICT industries and to build their own information infrastructures for economic competitiveness and social development.
Due to the government’s policy and worldwide trend of Internet of Things, III began developing Internet of Things technologies (such as sensors, smart grid, energy management system, demand response, etc.) For smart grid, III has deployed over 200 meters in National Central University (NCU) and 160 DR client to identify the scalability and stability of the system. The developed metering system is operational in National Central University with hybrid communication technologies and billing systems for monitoring the energy usage of machinery hall. Otherwise, ITeS building is also deployed over 800 sensors (such as temperature, humidity, luminance, motion, etc.) for identifying the integrated smart living system. It is used for developing automatic building energy management system and complex event processing system.
