Internet of Things (IoT) will see millions of devices (sensors, smartphones, wearable devices, RFIDs, vehicles etc.) connect and exchange information via Internet. Anything smart, be it Smart City, Smart Home, Smart Car, Smart Building, etc, will require complex new technologies and controlled experimental setups to enable timely and accurate information exchange. For such growth to happen and sustain, this area will require thousands of high end jobs with skillful people who are expert in various IoT technologies, platforms, and systems.
Established with partial support from DELL Inc., the IoT Laboratory at SNU Computer Science and Engineering department is an ultra-modern smart facility and one of its kind in this part of the world, providing complete support for research and development of end-to-end IoT systems. The IoT Laboratory is equipped with sophisticated hardware like microcontroller boards, sensors & actuators, LED screens, computing devices, IoT cloud interfaces, and gateway devices – all suitably integrated in a smart test environment.
This smart lab offers specialized CSE courses, namely, Internet of Things, Wireless Sensor Networks, Wireless & Mobile Systems and Distributed Systems. It provides opportunities for students to learn theoretical concepts, develop, and deploy prototypes by doing hands-on experiments for real life problems and funded research projects.
