Acer is very active in developing its BYOC(Build Your Own Cloud) technology recently. The company displayed its Acer Cloud ITS Solution for bus transportation including smart card sensing device, payment software and automotive centre control PC. It allows public transport operators to deploy a complete smart card payment solution immediately.

Asus was to showcase a number of cloud products, including storage server, Cloud Router, AP and the associated software. In addition, the company also introduced a small air detecting box which is capable of detecting air quality and upload the data to Asus cloud platform, where users can check the air condition by smartphone timely.
