The Secretary, Ministry of Electronics and Information Technologies (MeitY)Alkesh Kumar Sharma launched three IoT sensor-based products, including “Smart Digital Thermometer”, “IoT-Enabled Environmental Monitoring System” and “Multi-Channel Data Acquisition System”, developed by C-METS in the CoE in IIoT sensors. The technology transfer of the “Multichannel Data Acquisition System” to M/s Murata Business Engineering India SA Limited. was also held at the same function.
Speaking on the occasion, he mentioned the importance of research and development to focus on the requirements of society and the initiatives of the government 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 to develop commercial components and devices are in line with the government’s Atmarnirbharata mission. Locally developed IoT sensor solutions will help position India as a global hub for sensors and devices.
With the advent of concepts like smart cities and smart systems, sensors that can sense, sense, respond, and send data anywhere in the world through the Internet of Things (IoT) have revolutionized the electronics market. IoT-enabled sensors that can be remotely monitored and controlled, via internet connectivity, are the heart of smart devices and systems. Center for Materials for Electronic Technology (C-MET), Thrissur, an R&D institute of the Ministry of Electronics and IT, Govt. of India is an institute dedicated to the development of electronic materials, components and devices. C-MET has developed many indigenous technologies and transferred them to industries for commercialization. Under the “IoT Smart Sensor Center of Excellence” program, C-MET has developed three products based on IoT sensors, including “Smart Digital Thermometer”, “IoT-Enabled Environmental Monitoring System” and multichannel data acquisition. These products, which were launched by Alkesh Kumar Sharma IAS, are expected to help Indian industries explore the global sensor market with indigenous solutions.
