Saintgits is one among few colleges in Kerala to receive funds from Kerala start-up mission, Government of Kerala for setting up the IoT (Internet of Things) Lab. The IoT is the network of physical objects or ‘things’ embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and connectivity to enable objects to exchange data. IoT allows direct integration between the physical world and computer-based systems, helping to connect people, processes and devices.
The objective of IoT lab is two-fold
1) Focus on research – design and development of IoT enabled technologies which are cost effective and socially relevant.
2) To develop trained manpower (through student projects/research) in the field of IoT based application development.
Students and researchers can utilize our IoT test bed available in IoT lab to get hands on exposure on IoT platform. This IoT testbed is an open and developing ecosystem of edge devices, communication protocols, cloud-based platforms and applications with a focus on cost effective IoT technologies.
