Internet of Things (IoT)

IoT refers to the networked interconnection devices often equipped with intelligence that can capture data from our environment. Most of appliances, including alarm clocks, lighting, etc. can be connected to the Internet via IoT devices. The IoT Corner in the Digital Makerspace provides IoT devices loan service. You can quickly build a networked device in the Makerspace and start a proof-of-concept stage for your design.
