Natural environment of Vietnam is similar to Taiwan’s, and so are their local disaster conditions. Technologies developed by GIS.FCU, such as Ubiquitous monitoring and UAV, are applied in the field of disaster management. Dr. William Lin is in charge of a Green Transportation technology program developed by GIS in cooperation with VAST, laying fundaments for possible future cooperation in the fields of Ubiquitous monitoring and UAV technology between the two institutions. During this academic exchange, GIS.FCU has signed the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with VAST and HNUE. This was a great opportunity for Feng Chia University to open academic research and education exchange and establish cooperation between Taiwan and Vietnam.
