IoT Research Lab Kits

Brief Description

Internet of Things (IoT) provides IP connectivity to various Things apart from Desktops, Laptops and Mobile Devices. The term "THINGS" means any physical parameter that could be sensed and connected to Internet. For example, a device monitoring temperature and humidity at a certain location and relaying the data will become a “THING’” in IoT domain.

IoT is a connecting bridge between physical world and cyber world and Machine to Machine communication i.e. with automation as one subset. IoT refers to uniquely identifiable objects and their virtual representations in an Internet like structure. IoT is altogether a new environment in which current Internet will be smartly utilized by all new range of embedded connected things.

Sensors are the building blocks of IoT which can collect parameters and low power wireless embedded systems transmit information to gateway devices. Gateway device will make the parameters available over internet so that parameters are globally accessible. Till now there is no dedicated network stack defined for IoT, as it is a heterogeneous network of networks. The most popular protocols used for realization of IoT are ZigBee and 6LoWPAN (IEEE 802.15.4), Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

Main uses and domain

  • Comprehensive Lab setup to enhance the skills of students, researchers and academicians. The lab kit comes with various nodes supporting different protocols and Gateway. It also comes with a lab manual to streamline the learning process on various communication technologies and networking topologies. It also comes with Required Software and APIs to interface sensors to plug and play with nodes in implementing newer algorithms.
