"IoT Sensors Demo & Talk Show" to Mark Start Taiwan IoT Sensor Industry New Era

Want to diagnose heart disease rapidly, to better manage asthma, to track muscle activity level throughout the day, to get updated of indoor air quality, and to monitor quality of network shopping shipment conditions for insurance? Innovative sensors for IoT (Internet of Things) developed by domestic industry and academic and research institutes can meet your demands. Those high commercial potential products were presented in "IoT Sensors Demo & Talk Show" for "IoT Sensors Service Platform Project" this year.

National Applied Research Laboratories (NARLabs) held the "IoT Sensors Demo & Talk Show" on May 19, 2017 to showcase the "Internet of Things (IoT) Sensors Service Platform Project" annual achievement, inviting nearly 20 Taiwan leading manufacturers and venture capital firms. IoT sensors results developed by academic teams will be demonstrated and evaluated in public.

"IoT Sensors Demo & Talk Show" this year involved the twelve projects from seven universities, islandwide. The presentations were divided into four application areas: wearable devices and personal health care, Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), Internet of Vehicles, and general applications. The objective of the event is to develop applications of perception layer for smart life, smart manufacturing, smart factory, smart city, and so on. Every team was required to embed sensors in real-life application and demonstrate the specifications and efficiency under different circumstances (please refer to the attached list).

The intention that NARLabs inviting Taiwan leading enterprises, manufacturers and venture capital firms to participate the exhibition, is to bridge industry with academic institutes, and promote industrialization of sensors developed by academic researcher and utilizing these sensors for commercial products.

Everyday objects have network connectivity, IoT has already begun changing our life and we have entered a new technological era with loT. With mobile devices, sensors capture and send data for cloud/ Big Data to store and analyze the data for decision making. In these early days of the IoT, Taiwan put much of the focus on IoT network layer and application layer, and relatively not on perception layer (sensor) technology R&D. Through "IoT Sensor Service Platform Project", NARLabs helps optimizing the sensors developed by academia teams for specific applications and market.

Department of Engineering and Technologies of Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) and NARLabs carried academia and industry to start up "IoT Sensors Service Platform Project" in 2015. Through the service and certification platforms jointly built by Instrument Technology Research Center (ITRC), National Nano Device Laboratories (NDL) and the National Chip Implementation Center (CIC), NARLabs forge partnership with universities to develop sensor technology for industry application, aiming to develop new sensor products to meet market demand.

"IoT Sensors Service Platform Project" was established by Technologies of Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) for the purpose of integrate the cooperation among the IoT industry chain, from sensor technology development (upstream), network computing/cloud Big Data analysis (midstream), to industry innovative application (downstream), eventually, to commercialize the sensor research achievement with IoT application platform, take the sensor technologies from lab to markets, and showcase Taiwan IoT sensors research and development capability.
