IoT Lab

Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a concept in which sensors and actuators are interconnected and accessible remotely. It is becoming an increasingly important research field, as sensor costs decrease while the importance of data for decision-making increases. The IoT-Lab focuses on a number of research topics, such as low-power sensors, data-transmission technologies, resilient runtime environments and middleware software components as well as data analysis and data visualization tools. The lab facilities are routinely used for teaching subjects related to environmental monitoring, sensor development and control systems.
