About Us

The Living Lab is the brainchild of five IIIT-H professors — Professor Ramesh Loganathan, Practice, Co-innovations; Professor Vishal Garg, who presently heads Smart Buildings Centre; Professor Sachin Chaudhari, Signals Processing and Communications Centre; Professor Aftab Hussain, VLSI & Embedded-Systems Centre and Prakash Yalla, the Technology Transfer Officer of IIIT-H.

The objective is to convert IIITH campus into a living lab on the lines of the Amsterdam Arena in the Netherlands which is already a living lab. The IIITH campus would include different IoT verticals related to air pollution, building energy, water quantity and quality, street lighting, etc. There are three main objectives of this living lab:

  • get expertise in IoT for Smart Cities related research and deployment
  • generate data for research and
  • provide a test bench for IoT based Smart City implementations to start-ups as well as big companies.

Through the Living Lab, IIIT-H plans to transform the campus into a platform for learning, experimentation and for showcasing new ideas and approaches. “As technology goes mainstream and directly into homes, buildings, campuses and cities, it is imperative that access to such spaces should be available to ensure that the right products are defined, designed and built. Without live access to such spaces, solutions or products may end up being theoretical and not actually usable,” explains Professor Ramesh.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What initiatives has the IIIT launched to address the IOT market?

    We have focused our efforts in three areas: institution building, projects, and the student curriculum.

  • Leveraging the core and domain strengths of IIITH, the living lab focuses on Smart City issues. Our efforts are aided by our international collaborations such as EBTC, PWC, LAAS and Bordeaux, which have a strong Smart City component to them.

  • A related plan we have is to setup Smart Campus extensions in other engineering institutions in the city, where we will have mini smart campus setup in their premises and work closely with us on projects. Basically, we aim to expand our scope and resources’ reach in a structured way.
