Three IoT sensor-based products, including a “Smart Digital Thermometer,” an “IoT enabled Environmental Monitoring System,” and a “Multichannel Data Acquisition System,” were unveiled by the Secretary of the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY), Alkesh Kumar Sharma.
At the same function, the Multichannel data Acquisition System’s technology transfer to Murata Business Engineering India was also completed. Speaking at the event, he emphasised the value of focusing R&D on societal needs as well as government actions to increase electronic manufacturing in the country.
One of the most common components in the industry is a sensor, and C-MET’s efforts to translate IoT sensor research into commercially viable components and devices are in accordance with the government’s Atmarnirbharata mission. India-made IoT sensor solutions will aid in positioning the country as a centre for sensors and devices on a global scale.
Sensors that can detect, feel, respond, and transfer data anywhere in the world through the Internet of Things (IoT) have revolutionised the electronics market with the introduction of ideas like Smart cities and intelligent systems. Smart devices and systems are powered by IoT-enabled sensors that can be monitored and controlled remotely via internet connectivity.
A premier organisation dedicated to the creation of electronic materials, components, and devices is the Centre for Materials for Electronic Technology (C-MET), Thrissur. It is an R&D facility under the Ministry of Electronics & IT, Government of India.
C-MET has created numerous indigenous technology and given them to companies to commercialise. The “Smart Digital Thermometer,” “IoT enabled Environmental Monitoring System,” and “Multichannel data Collection Acquisition System” are three IoT sensor-based products that C-MET has created as part of the initiative “Centre of Excellence in Intelligent IoT Sensors”.
Alkesh Kumar Sharma launched these items on March 3, 2023, and they are anticipated to assist Indian businesses in entering the global sensor industry with homegrown products. Sunita Verma, Group Coordinator, MeitY; Thachat Ragash Menon, General Manager, Murata Business Engineering India; BB Kale, DG, C-MET; N. Raghu, Director, C-MET, Thrissur; and Dr. A. Seema, Senior Scientist, C-MET, Thrissur also spoke at the occasion.
