Platform is aimed at promoting applied R&D in areas of connected devices toward Internet of Everything (IoE).
Open IoT Lab works with the Central and State Governments to promote the adoption of IoT projects for use in citizen-centric projects.
OpenIoT Lab works closely with startups to help realize their ideas using our rapid prototyping facility. Design validation and Design for Manufacturing can further be conducted in our premises.

Nodes are edge/end devices that can add value to the interconnects based on which decisions can be made.The nodes, which in most cases is Hardware Device, is a combination of Open Source Hardware, Sensors and Open Source firmware.
Gateways act as bridge between two different networks. In most IoT application the purpose of gateway is to offer interconnects between a Non-IP network such as Zigbee, LoRaWAN, RF, Bluetooth, etc and an IP network such as LTE, WiFi.
Middleware helps establish a common standard amongst the diversity of devices, sensors, OS and applications that makes up the IoT ecosystem architecture.It essentially connects different, often complex and already existing applications that were not originally designed to be connected.
Dashboards are platforms that offer a visual representation of data/information from the physical entities through a display (Human Machine Interface) on a computer/mobile device. Dashboards enable remote management of nodes, helps perform analytics, enable data visualisation and also enable creation of data sharing models such as an API.
Hardware agnostic systems helps bring large scale scalability to the internet of things. Operating systems allow a horizontal integration approach to create smartphone-like, app-driven usage and business models, connecting and interacting with Cloud-based infrastructure and services.
Protocols help optimise the bandwidth, radio cost and the number of interconnects while standards in most cases refer to regulatory rules that allow for a standard model for everyday IoT backend tasks, such as processing, storage, and firmware updates.
