  – Smart Citizens – aiming at the city having smart citizens who take care of their own health and their daily lives using robotic and automatic systems

  – Complaint – a system for citizens to make complaints to relevant units with ease

  – Smart Trash – trash bins that can indicate their own capacity or warn when the smell is bad


     Assoc. Prof. Dr. Wanida Kanarkard added that the success in development of these innovations is from the cooperation of the research team and participation of Khon Kaen University students to apply and create innovations from their classroom knowledge.
