C-MET Unveils Indigenously Developed IoT Sensor Solutions

Article By : PIB India

C-MET has developed three IoT sensor-based products under the Center of Excellence in Intelligent IoT sensors program.

The Center for Materials for Electronic Technology (C-MET) has developed three IoT sensor-based products under the Center of Excellence in Intelligent IoT sensors: “Smart Digital thermometer”, “IoT-enabled Environmental Monitoring System”, and “Multichannel Data Acquisition System.” The announcement was made by Shri Alkesh Kumar Sharma, Secretary, Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY).

The technology transfer of “Multichannel data Acquisition System” to M/s Murata Business Engineering India Pvt Ltd was also carried out in the same function.

Speaking on the occasion, Sharma mentioned the importance of research and development to focus on the requirements of the society and government’s initiatives to boost electronic manufacturing in the country. Sensors are one of the most widely used components in the industry and C-MET’s efforts through translational research on IoT sensors for developing commercial ready components and devices is in line with the government’s Atmarnirbharata mission. Indigenously developed IoT sensor solutions will help to position India as a global hub for sensors and devices.

With the advent of concepts like smart cities and intelligent systems, sensors that can detect, feel, respond and send the data to anywhere in the world through IoT has revolutionized the electronics market. IoT enabled sensors which can be monitored and controlled remotely, through internet connectivity, are the heart of smart devices and systems. C-MET in Thrissur, an R&D institute under MeitY, is a premier institute engaged in the development of electronic materials, components and devices. C-MET has developed many indigenous technologies and transferred them to industries for commercialization.

The newly developed products are expected to help Indian industries to explore the global sensor market with indigenous solutions.
