Indian Research Institute Develops IoT Sensor-Based Products

Indigenously-developed IoT sensor solutions will help to position India as a global hub for sensors and devices. The Secretary of the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY), Alkesh Kumar Sharma launched three Internet of Things (IoT) sensor-based products. He unveiled a smart digital thermometer, an IoT-enabled environmental monitoring system, and a multichannel data acquisition system. The products were developed by the Centre for Materials for Electronic Technology’s (C-MET) Centre of Excellence in Intelligent IoT Sensors.

Sharma also oversaw the technology transfer of the multichannel data acquisition system to a private company. Speaking on the occasion, he highlighted the importance of research and development that focuses on the requirements of society and the government’s targets 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 commercially ready components and devices are in line with the government’s Atmanirbhar Bharat (Self-Reliant India) mission.

With the advent of smart cities and intelligent systems, sensors that can detect, feel, respond, and send data across the world through IoT networks have revolutionised the electronics market. IoT-enabled sensors, which can be monitored and controlled remotely through the Internet, are at the heart of smart devices and systems.

Established in 1990, C-MET is a research and development institute under the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology. It 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 industry players for commercialisation. C-MET’s research and development activities are carried out in three laboratories at Pune, Hyderabad, and Thrissur. The laboratory at Pune functions as headquarters and extends central coordination support. Each of these laboratories has its own areas of specialisation with the requisite infrastructure and expertise.

Last year, the Centre for Development of Telematics (C-DOT) inked a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with one of India’s largest telecom operators to help simplify the deployment of IoT solutions and foster interoperability among devices and applications as per oneM2M (machine to machine) architecture.

IoT adoption has become critical in any organisation’s digital transformation journey. However, in the current deployments, certain operational challenges prevent businesses from tapping into the technology’s true potential. Some issues include device network compatibility, over-the-air firmware upgrades, remote device configuration, security vulnerabilities, and implementation in siloes with proprietary protocols.

To address these challenges, C-DOT and the telecom operator agreed to evaluate applications and devices from various solution providers against oneM2M specifications and offer joint certificates. As OpenGov Asia reported, the partnership was an opportunity to see the oneM2M specifications in action in a diverse set of sectors and applications, from smart energy to connected cars. C-DOT’s indigenously-developed oneM2M-based Common Services Platform (CCSP) offers several benefits to the IoT industry.

The collaboration presented opportunities for device and application providers to deploy their solutions in telecom operators’ networks. The platform enabled application providers to use a robust middleware framework with all necessary underlying common services to deploy a secure oneM2M-compliant solution.

Globally, the IoT Sensors Market is projected to reach US$29.6 billion by 2026 from US$11.1 Billion in 2022 at a CAGR of 28.6%. The growth rate was 33.78% from 2021 to 2022. Pressure sensors are expected to grow the most, with a CAGR of 33.73%.
