Mohawk’s Sensor Systems and Internet of Things (IoT) Lab helps Canadian companies become more effective in their adoption of IoT for industrial use (IIoT). The research team supports the adoption of IIoT technologies through the development of proof-of-concept and prototype systems in collaboration with industrial partners.
The lab was established by Mohawk’s Industrial Research Chair for Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) Applications, with the support of industry partners such as CareGo, TruckSail, Merq, Brigade Electronics Inc, IBM, MTech Hub, IoT Foundry and Siemens Canada.
The research team works collaboratively with the Energy & Power Innovation Centre (EPIC), the Centre for Climate Change Management, the Cyber Lab, the Additive Manufacturing Innovation Centre (AMIC), and the mHealth & eHealth Development and Innovation Centre (MEDIC).
