How can you give more power to the lab equipment you rely on most? In this about how to simply and efficiently bolster the capabilities of the hard-working heroes of your lab.
Thoughts and updates from the OpenIO team
The Internet of Things (IoT) is finally becoming established in the laboratory, allowing researchers and scientists to work more efficiently, minimise failures and even improve their work-life balance. A recent article in the Nature journal provides a fascinating snapshot into the way IoT is changing lab work, clearly showing a shift in the way researchers and scientists work
What does a ‘thing’ need to work in IoT? An article we recently read has given us food for thought. The Hierachy of the IoT ‘thing’ needs published by Jim Hunter in Techcrunch likens ‘things’ to people because they have needs that must be met to operate properly.
What we often hear is that IoT and machine to machine communications hold so much potential, but the reality is that the uniqueness of each lab set up makes it hard to benefit from what it offers. The need to introduce modern equipment is important, as it increases efficiency, but incorporating them means reinvesting in new technologies, that is until OpenIOLabs was launched.
How can we create an open source hardware ecosystem? We review a paper from Microsoft Research and what it teaches us about the success of open source software.
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) has revolutionised how we collect and store data, but it does mean there is the burden of handling it all. How can data be organised and used more effectively with fewer growing pains? We look at edge processing and how it can streamline the way you work.
We'll be joining 16,000 attendees from industry, academic and government from over 90 countries at the largest conference for laboratory science. Will you be there too?
