The Internet of Things Lab is a campus hub focused on
learning, research and hands-on experimentation to discover
and demonstrate the promise of the Internet of Things.

The Internet of Things Lab serves as an exciting multidisciplinary learning and research “sandbox” as well as a thought-leadership and innovation showcase to explore, experience, and extend cutting-edge technologies and use-cases. We are investigating a variety of emerging devices and technologies (involving smart sensing, pervasive connectivity, virtual interfaces and ubiquitous computing), and their potential applications in consumer, retail, healthcare and industrial contexts.


The Internet of Things will transform the way we live, work, and play.
