Holy Cross of Davao College presented its system that automatically alerts maritime authorities in cases of overloading of vessels. The system uses sensors to detect overloading of ships and then automatically warns authorities through text messages.

The team from Batangas State University created a drip irrigation system that used GSM technology and various sensors. The Smart Farmbihira system is capable of automatically watering and fertilizing a plantation at a set time or manually through a text message.

A University of Baguio project uses the force of vehicles passing through a street to generate electricity to light up street lamps.

Cebu was represented by a team from the University of San Carlos (USC), which submitted a system that used sensors and telecommunications technology to warn forestry officials in cases of illegal logging.

The Preventive Illegal Logging Monitoring Endeavor (Prime) used monitors to detect chainsaw sounds and SMS and GSM technology to send out alerts. Whenever an alert is triggered, the system initiates a phone call to a designated recipient so that the person can listen and confirm whether the sound is really that of a chainsaw.
