Research Areas: 

The reserach areas in the IDRP on IoT & Applications are classified into few sub-areas viz Industry 4.0, Embedded Intelligence, Architecture, Smart Interface, and Smart City as given in following figure.




Following are some application areas of the IDRP on IoT & Applications: 

  • Indoor and Outdoor Air Quality Monitoring Systems: 

    Low-cost sensors offer great opportunity to measure air quality parameters at a spatiotemporal scale that is much faster, longer, and realistic compared to expensive research- and regulatory-grade instruments. Until now, the focus has primarily been on accessing and improvising the accuracy and reliability of available sensor technologies and identifying the correct calibration procedures, and the routine monitoring of air quality parameters. In this project, we aim to transcend these objectives and explore the application of integrated multipollutant low-cost sensor systems to identify the types and sources of air pollutants in complex environments.
