IISc Smart Campus: Closing the loop from network to knowledge

This project proposes to develop an open, integrated and extensible IoT technology stack for Smart Management of campus utilities. The IoT stack brings together hybrid sensing, diverse networking, Big Data analytics and science-driven utility management, and will be validated through affordable and intelligent water resource management for a sustainable campus environment.

A portable fever kit for Dengue and Chikungunya

The project aims to develop a proof of concept molecular test which can differential between the viral infections of Dengue and Chikungunya. The research program will also focus on integrating a sample preparation module with the photonic sensors to produce a cartridge-based test that will operate using a single finger stick capillary blood sample and be as easy to operate as a conventional blood sugar meter.

Study of India-appropriate technology (IoT) solutions for Smart Cities

The Indian Government has launched many national-scale ICT initiatives in the last year. Irrespective of their final mandate, these programs are ultimately driving towards a coherent plan of infrastructure development, service delivery and information transparency for the advancement and empowerment of Indian citizens. ICT will be critical for the successful execution and long-term sustainability of these projects. Among other ICT technologies, the Internet of Things (IoT) can provide a seamless inter-connect between the physical entities with the cyber world with M2M communication and closed-loop control with/without human intervention. Hence, leapfrogging to adopt IoT as the ICT “technology of choice” will be the key to success.
