Technology Park  - IIT Jodhpur
Enabling Innovation Ecosystem: AIOT FAB

IIT Jodhpur is setting up an Incubation Centre and Technology Park in its campus to nucleate a cluster of new age ventures. The focal theme for the Technology Park is AIOT – Artificial Intelligence of Things. Convergence of AI, IOT and 5G is ushering in AIOT. This next generation technology is expected to impact all sectors of economy.

IITJ is running relevant B.Tech (EE, CSE) and M.Tech. programmes (Sensors and IOT, Cyber Physical System, Artificial Intelligence) with integrated entrepreneurial immersion opportunity providing talented pool of trained manpower for enterprises in the tech park.

Technology Park under the aegis of an independent section-8 company managed by IIT Jodhpur with the financial and technical support of relevant stake-holders (Government Agencies, Angel and Venture Investors, Technology Providers) will

  • Have a Common Research and Technology development Hub providing access to hardware and software facilities for end-to-end research, prototype development and pilot production of products for AIOT space
  • Provide an interface for industries to collaborate with faculty and students of IITJ and other research and academic organisations in the country and Jodhpur in particular
  • Enable interface for mentors and investors including government agencies to work with MSME and start-up’s
Common Research and Development Hub (core of AIOT FAB) will include
  • Electronic Fab for fabrication of sensors and associated electronics
  • Fabless design facilities for hardware IP in IOT-AI domain
  • Design, implementation, testing and production facilities for IOT devices ( all facilities for electronic system development and production)
  • Hardware and Software Infrastructure for design, development and deployment of AI and Data Driven Products
  • Appropriate Data Infrastructure for Enabling enterprises to manage and use large scale enterprise data in real-time
  • Computational Facilities and Software support for Large Scale Modelling and Simulation

In India, Jodhpur has a potential to become a specialized growth centre in this technology space because of  the following among other reasons
  1. Opportunity for innovations in AIOT technology for water quality assessment and ensuring optimal water usage in agricultural, domestic and industrial applications fofr meeting challenges of arid zone
  2. Challenge in ensuring smart power management for exploiting higher percentage of renewables (solar & wind)
  3. Smart Infrastructure management given the growth of Smart Cities and Specialised transport corridors in the adjoining region
  4. Emerging Oil and Gas industry with discovery of oil and gas reserves in Barmer and adjacent region
  5. Academic ecosystem of IITJ and AIIMS Jodhpur can be an ideal combination for AIOT in healthcare
  • TECH-PARK on AIOT is coming up over a space of 100 acres well connected with airport and all basic amenities in the neighbourhood
  • TECH PARK will host at least 30  companies at a time
  • Talented and experienced faculty and Research facility of IIT Jodhpur will be integral resource of the Tech Park
