Internet of Things
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical devices, vehicles, home appliances and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators and connectivity which enables these objects to connect and exchange data. Each thing is uniquely identifiable through its embedded computing system but is able to inter-operate within the existing Internet infrastructure.
The IoT allows objects to be sensed or controlled remotely across existing network infrastructure, creating opportunities for more direct integration of the physical world into computer-based systems, and resulting in improved efficiency, accuracy and economic benefit in addition to reduced human intervention. When IoT is augmented with sensors and actuators, the technology becomes an instance of the more general class of cyber-physical systems, which also encompasses technologies such as smart grids, virtual power plants, smart homes, intelligent transportation and smart cities.
These devices collect useful data with the help of various existing technologies and then autonomously flow the data between other devices.
Mentorship and Training
Our initiative to train and equip the youth with skills in electronics hardware and pertinent software is in a bid to garner a critical mass that will drive the technology revolution locally. Our special tailored curricula involve equips the novice with skills in basic electronics, embedded systems, mechatronics and other fields that are requisite for robotics. We also provide web and mobile application development training which is essential as a platform for some solutions. We encourage our trainees to start with an innovation in mind and accomplish it by the end of the training-you are the judge of your own progress.
A prototype is an early sample, model or release of a product built to test a concept or process or to act as a thing to be replicated or learned from (semantics, design, electronics and software programming). A prototype is generally used to evaluate a new design to enhance precision by system analysts and users.
